'Pacific Rim' a new standard of monster and bot excellence

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

For the record, this is one of the movies where it is entirely worth shelling out the extra cash for 3D as well as the generous IMAX screen size as it is only enhanced and pops with each sensory shaking scene. Few movies have had such an impact and when I wasn’t tempted to squeal with manly glee (cause us dudes got to keep up appearances), I felt drawn in by the relationships established by the main players. Though I’m sure it’s a perfectly fine film on its own merit, my heart kind of sank a bit when Rim was beaten out by “Grown Ups 2” and if you have to pick one action film, this one is a winner until the final battle. Despite all obvious and well placed cheese, I don’t think I’ve had more fun just going to the theater and say that I am not worthy to bask in the almighty glow of Guillermo Del Toro (Now can we have Hellboy III pretty please?). Once I was able to recover from the shear grip of such an awesgasmic spectacle I found it only appropriate to award “Pacific Rim” 2013’s first flawless five out of five rating.
