When giant massive monsters called Kaijus start appearing from a interdimensional portal on the Pacific Ocean floor, man decides to create their own monsters in the form of giant robots to attack and hopefully stop these monsters from destroying mankind and cities across the world. Add Charlie Hunnam into the mix as part of a duo of people who man these giant robots and attack them, defeating them. Trouble is, one wave of attacks his co-pilot (his brother) is killed leaving him alone in the world.

Pacific Rim tries to create a whole new universe in such a short space of time. The pilots of these giant machines need to link mentally together and share their memories. The creatures come from a interdimensional portal built by aliens wanting to destroy everything, for whatever reason (as they do), with people harvesting parts from the creatures themselves.

Del Toro packs quite a lot in and unfortunately even the awful American accent of Charlie Hunnam doesn’t excuse it. The battles are immense, the creatures are awesome but the story between the two just seems to be rushed, never seems to explain a lot and if you were thinking they were doing this to build up a sequel, then to end on a closure of the portal itself and the end of all the Jaeger’s (giant robots) seems kinda “why?”

A few characters definitely bring some gravitas to it all, Ron Perlman (without extensive makeup) is brilliant and only glad he appears in a post-credit scene. Charlie Day also is an interesting character that would have loved to see more. But who knows, maybe they’ll build more, another rift will open, and next time it’ll be Atlantic Rim.
