As a long time fan of Giant Monster movies, starting of course with Toho's Godzilla, I've set my own personal standards on how the films should be done. The interactions between the monsters need to be action packed, the human aspect (while obviously not the "main" focus of the film) needs to be gripping, there needs to be a certain tension-easing quirkiness, and the feel of the movie has to deliver a suspenseful atmosphere. That being said, I look now at how the film held up to this. From the multiple times I've viewed it, I can say that Pacific Rim is easily in my top 3 Giant Monster movies of all time. Not only did it do its part to deliver on all accounts, it did so swiftly and without falter. The designs of the Kaiju and Jaegers were inspired and original, the action scenes were intense, the human characters were easy to relate to and caused an appropriate amount of both strong feeling and some of the quirkiness mentioned above, and of course the film had its moments of fantastic suspense, between many of the action sequences as well as the human interaction. If i could sum this entire review up in shorter words, then there would have to be some other forces at work, seeing how as I find myself currently incapable of doing so. What Legendary Pictures and Director Del Toro have done here is nothing short of incredible. It truly is how Giant Monster movies should be done, and it has me on the edge of my seat in anticipation for the 2014 release of Godzilla.
