| A Very Pleasant Surprise
Let's be honest, lately we've seen so much ridiculously horrible alien invaders movies that even Independence Day is like a golden classic now. Battle L.A., Battleship, last Transformers movie (was it the 9th? 11th? I forgot!), District 9 (yes, it was horrible too) etc..

So when I've heard about Pacific Rim I thought "oh no, not another one" and ignored it. Then, I saw the ratings and some reviews here on IMDb. OK another confession now, IMDb also let me down lately because people were voting like they've never seen a good movie or good script. Go look at Dark Knight Rising's IMDb rating, for God's sake! (my right eye began to twitch involuntary when I thought of Dark Knight Rising again.. aaarrrgghh)

But then one day destiny did the job for me, here I was having nothing to do with spare time and an imax cinema with Pacific Rim. I looked at other movies, Wolverine - check, I've already been to, good movie. Red 2, check - it was great fun. World War Z, unfortunately check, waste of time. Pacific Rim? OK, why not? After 2,5 hours the lights were on again and I was sitting with a big grin on my face apologizing from everyone who worked for this movie.

This is really amazing folks. This is old skool fun! This is really better than last 5 years' alien invasion movies all together! This just popped out from 80's with 2010's technology. Do not miss it! And try to catch it on imax 3D! You'll never regret it!

Trivia

The Jaegers are a staple of Japanese anime, where they are often called mecha. Similar to many mecha anime series, Jaegers are controlled from within by human pilots, distinguishing them from other depictions of robots as automated, sentient, or externally controlled.


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

(at around 1h 14 mins) Gipsy Danger is said to be immune to an EMP because it is "nuclear powered" and therefore "analog". This would be nearly impossible as the two have nothing to do with one another. Most nuclear reactors have many digital parts and computers controlling them. Furthermore, the cockpit of Gipsy Danger is filled with what appear to be digital computers.


Crazy Credits

There is a scene in the closing credits: Hannibal Chau cuts his way out of a Kaiju corpse.


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.
