| Epic in every proportion
This film starts of with a monologue that explains in twenty seconds how big monsters start appearing from the sea and destroying everything. The only defence against them is to kick their heads in with massive robots. Cool! Starting so quickly out the blocks I expected this to be a fast paced action movie.

It really isn't. About every film element ever used, runs its course before the inevitable big battle. You get a fall from grace, a rivalry, a training period, a love story, forgiveness, reconciliation, etc. etc.

The battle sequences are epic, the monsters and robots are amazing, Kids especially will love them, and the action goes on and on.

The dialogue is cheesier and hammier than a 60 foot pizza monsters, and coupled with the extended scope of this film can make watching it gruelling if you are not instantly gripped.

This will keep any kids gripped for hours (nearly three of them) but if sci-fi isn't your thing get comfy and bring a pillow.

Trivia

A life-sized version of the robot cockpit was built on a soundstage at Pinewood Studios in Toronto, Canada. It weighed about twenty tons and stood nearly four stories high. It was built on a gigantic hydraulic gimbal, which would move, shake, vibrate, drop and rock the entire set as if it were actually being piloted. A smaller version was also built with a smaller gimbal, allowing for different movements. The VFX team used some of the Conn-pod footage for reference while animating the robots. The set was also redressed to depict the interior of each robot differently.


Quotes

Raleigh Becket: When I was a kid, whenever I'd feel small or lonely, I'd look up at the stars. Wondered if there was life up there. Turns out I was looking in the wrong direction. When alien life entered our world, it was from deep beneath the Pacific Ocean. A ...

Goofs

When one of the Jaeger is shown to go supersonic, one can see the plume when it goes supersonic. However, the boom isn't a single event. It should keep manifesting itself all along the path of that Jaeger.


Crazy Credits

At the end of the closing credits, a Kaiju roar is heard.


Alternate Versions

In the North American release, the scene where Mako is introduced has her and Raleigh speaking in Japanese. Some international releases have this scene dubbed in English - not in Denmark and Norway though, where the Japanese is intact. To the exception of France where all Japanese dialogs are subtitled even in french dubbed versions.
