To Fight Monsters, We Created Monsters
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed-up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

@toke oh wow I've just read this comment. "Evangelion adaptation"? What a joke. It's obvious that this movie does not attempt at all to adapt Evangelion, or even mecha movies. It tries to adapt the Japanese monster film genre. You think where did they get the name "kaiju"?

Pacific Rim is a completely batshit insane piece of pure awesomeness!!!

The CGI and special effects are great, The robots are great, and the monsters are extremely great. Granted..it hasn't got much depth, and the story is so and so, but the entertainment value is top notch.

The movie has an "anime" feel to it, but that might just be the big robots and the giant beasts. Anyway...If you have any interest in these kinds of things, do yourself a favour and watch Pacific Rim.

There's not much more to say except...

If you haven't watched it yet...just go do it.
