Pacific Rim

Had an opportunity to have a grown up film. Though Pacific Rim isn’t really a grown up film, we didn’t have to think about suitability of the film for a child.

This film is LOUD… Iris Elba gave a solid performance, he just drips screen presence. The plot of the film is a bit silly, Earth gets attacked by monsters coming through a rift found in the Pacific Ocean. This is basically a variation of Godzilla. This is not surprising as the film is based on Japanese films of monsters fighting robots.

What the film does do well is convey a sense of solidity to the robots. So often CGI appears to be lacking in weight. These robots certainly feel heavy.

I am looking forward to a sequel. Unsure if the box office is big enough to bankroll a second.
