[capsule review] Pacific Rim - Predictable action flick that steals a lot from others in its genre. I slept through portions and didn't miss anything. Really wanted to be giant Iron Man in those suits, huh? (iTunes Rental, 12/13)
As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
Pacific Rim (2013) — 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.
