rev: Pacific Rim

3.5 / 5

The first half begins quite interestingly before descending into manga and Power Ranger-esque clichés. Fortunately, the latter half sees Pacific Rim come into its own. The film is worth repeated viewings, if only to indulge in the fictional universe and the fascinating monster designs.

I can’t wait for the sequel and, inevitably, the resurrection of Stacker Pentecost.
