The PACIFIC RIM Reviews Warn: 'Better Gear Up For A Monster Hit!'
"The extinction of mankind has loomed again and again over Hollywood blockbusters the past couple of years, though never anywhere near as entertainingly as in "Pacific Rim.''
"Though everything we see is pure, pleasurable comic-book absurdity, Del Toro somehow lends a plausible humanity to the proceedings, one lacking in most of this summer's city-destroying blockbusters."
"A jumble of grating caricatures shouting dopey lines at each other in a film with no real sense of cause and effect. It was like watching a nerd play with his dolls for two hours."
"A better-and-smarter-than-average humans-vs.-monsters spectacular."
"Guillermo del Toro's epic homage to classic-era monster movies is a triumph of consumate design and old school romanticism."
"Pacific Rim is just the kind of big-ticket sci-fi adventure you'd want del Toro to make -- provided you'd want him to make one at all."
"What isn't to like about Pacific Rim? This bludgeoning 3D creature feature is a slick bit of movie mayhem."
"Though it's made by an obviously gifted director and will likely please devotees of the genre, it ultimately feels very short on character and long on noise, noise, noise."
"I'd strongly argue that Pacific Rim is one of the more memorable, distinctive action releases in recent years."
"A movie about that is thrillingly, upliftingly about the best of humanity. And it also has giant mechs punching the s**t out of giant monsters. This is what blockbuster movies should be."
"A stonking summer blockbuster that delivers on an epic scale."
"'Pacific Rim' is outrageously badass."
