| 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 sound for the Kaiju's roars were comprised of layer upon layer of animal roars and growls, which were filtered, sped up, and slowed down to create the roar of alien behemoths. Then, to add emotion and a sense of intelligence, supervising sound editor Scott Martin Gershin and director Guillermo del Toro added samples of their own voices.


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 ...
Raleigh Becket: ...


Goofs

(at around 20 mins) When the Kaiju breaches the sea wall and is threatening Sydney, it is first shown striding under the Harbour Bridge, towards the Opera House. Travelling in this direction, the Kaiju would actually be heading towards the ocean, not coming from it.


Crazy Credits

At the end of the closing credits, there is a dedication to monster masters Ray Harryhausen and Ishirô Honda.


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.
