Pacific Rim is Guillermo del Toro's newest passion project, but will fans head to the theaters with that same level of passion to see it? Fans of del Toro's work and fans of monster movies alike have been bombarded with updates on Pacific Rim for months, and everyone has been waiting with much anticipation to see what all of the fuss is about. Pacific Rim is a story about the monstrous Kaiju, who rise from the ocean to unleash an all out war on humanity. After attempts to fight the Kaiju fail, the future of the world rests in the hands of a washed up former pilot and a trainee. The reviews are already coming in from critics everywhere, and from the way it sounds, people are generally liking what they've seen. The Hollywood reporter calls it A better-and-smarter-than-average humans-vs.-monsters spectacular. And one critic at Film.com thought that del Toro makes you feel like a kid again but in an impressive way saying quote "They don't let 14 year-old boys direct multi-million dollar feature films, but somehow Guillermo Del Toro has channeled the interests, attitudes and fears from that mindset with a clarity that far surpasses contemporaries like Michael Bay." And Time Out New York agreed saying quote "Though everything we see is pure, pleasurable comic-book absurdity, Del Toro somehow lends a plausible humanity to the proceedings, one lacking in most of this summer's city-destroying blockbusters." So far so good, right? Well, there are a few critics that weren't terribly impressed, like Variety who gave an incredibly vivid review saying quote :The squarest, clunkiest and certainly loudest movie of director Guillermo del Toro's career, a crushed-metal orgy that plays like an extended 3D episode of "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" on very expensive acid." And The Wrap's critic had some frustrations with the CGI in some of the scenes saying "Whenever the jaegers and the kaiju throw down in Pacific Rim, it's at night in the pouring rain - unless they're both at the bottom of the ocean. What's the point, exactly, of cutting-edge CG monsters filmed in a way where we can barely see them?" So, to each their own, but overall Pacific Rim has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 82% from critics with 98% of fans wanting to see it regardless of the reviews. So, what do you all think? Is Pacific Rim at the top of your current "must see" list? Let us know down below, and subscribe to us, so that you will know once our ClevverMovies review of Pacific Rim goes live.
