“2500 ton, 25 floors tall and you are the pilot”. That is one of the tagline of Pacific Rim and even though I saw it at an Imax screen the size of it couldn’t do justice to the giant robots called Jaeger’s. In 2020, 7 years into the war since the Kaiju ( it means monster in Japanese)appeared humans, after having failed at everything you have seen in other disaster movies  design these giant robots to hunt them down. Each Jaeger is manned by two pilots; their memories are synchronized through a process called drifting. Guillermo Del Torro has envisioned a world that will bring the kid alive in you and after a point in the film you would be like the pilots inside the Jaeger punching Kaiju left right and centre. After going for a big set piece action sequence right in the beginning the film focuses on the human story of Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori(Rinko Kikuchi).leading them all is Stacker Pentecost( Idris Alba). You wait in anticipation for the jaeger vs kaiju fight to begin. And when they do you will be on the edge of your seat with excitement marveling at the sheer visual spectacle that Del Torro creates in the second half. I wasn’t invested much in the human stories except ogling at Rinko. She looks hot, especially in the training fight between her and Charlie Hunnam. The film leaves you with a sense of wonder. The last time I felt such sense of wonder was while watching Avatar. It’s one thing to think of this vision and quite another thing to actually achieve it. Del Torro sets a benchmark for people to follow when thinking of a big epic blockbuster.” Go Big or Go Extinct” might just be his clarion call to future filmmakers. The makers of Transformers and the reboot of Godzilla would be twiddling their thumbs while watching this.


Word of mouth – For once enough even an Imax screen couldn’t do justice to Del Torro’s epic vision. Pacific Rim fulfills all expectations.
