Go to the biggest, loudest screen you can find.
2D or 3D, it doesn’t matter.
You will stare in amazement.
You will cheer.
You will want to be a robot pilot.
You will feel like a child again.
I was so happy that this film delivered.
We need more movies like this that take a chance with original material.*
[Update: My buddy Aaron summed up Pacific Rim pretty well by saying, “A fun, fresh embrace of childhood fantasy brought to life on the big screen.”
*Also, a clarification on what I mean by “original material”. I’m referring to something not based on preexisting intellectual property (i.e. movie, video game, comic book, novel, etc.).]
