PACIFIC RIM (2013) — My rating: 7/10

PacificRimI expected great things because Idris Elba is starring in this movie and Guillermo del Toro directed it.  It’s very futuristic with a decent story line on the human side.  However, the machine plot got a little complex when they started talking about destroying bridges underwater where the aliens took up residence.  The concept of machines controlling the world is understandable considering the many devices now in play.  I.e., devices that control your entire house activity from a cell phone and robots that vacuum your floors.  Hollywood has a powerful and great imagination.  Although the acting was good and the action was also good, I didn’t understand why 2 characters had to die (it didn’t make it any more believable nor any  more interesting).  I liked Pacific Rim mostly because of Idris Elba.  It just didn’t make me say “wow” and I wasn’t thoroughly entertained.  The best I could give it is a rating of 7.   I do however, think it’s worth seeing on the big screen and it’s definitely worth renting.

  1. Funny! A sci-fi geek co-worker swore this movie was fantastic, but I had my reservations. Thank you for clarifying. : )
