Pacific Rim

lads, so disappointed with this - should have been epic, but not so much unfortunately. The kaiju vs jaegers fight were AMAZING and the special effects rocked; loved how it looked, but the dialogue was appalling. They managed to simultaneously take it too seriously and not seriously enough - the so-called comic relief- 2 scientists channeling Norman Wisdom and Rick Moranis just made me cringe. such a waste.......sigh

haha - not for everyone - but I thought it was hilarious!! My friend really didn't get it or like it but I have to say, a lot of people were laughing.... All in all, once you sit back and switch your brain off you'll roar laughing - especially if you get the myriad references sprinkled throughout. Will never be able to look at Michael Cera or Channing Tatum in the same way again (neither will they!!). Thanks for the tickets guys - great night!!

I should have known going in, so I've no-one to blame but myself. Good premise, terrible movie. Like it was written by a sheltered 12 year old who'd never had a relationship, or like, talked to other people..... The whole thing was so soulless and dead eyed, the only believable part with actual emotions was when the 2 guys did what they had to do to escape the seekers... Apart from that the whole thing was just cringingly bad - most of the characters weren't even one dimensional. In case it's not clear, I really didn't like it. It looked good, though.

looked good but the lack of plot or coherence kinda spoiled it for me. now i like mindless action movies as much as the next person - but really??? some funny moments but the this movie made good actors bad and made ok actors the stars of the show....... the battleship hit/miss segment was good and for me the only part of the movie that made actual sense:)

better than i expected - but still not convinced by rob pattison. I felt that it could have done so much more - Duroy should have been more evil, instead he was vacant most of the time and i found uma thurman's performance to be very mannered and stilted.

yeah, yeah the action scenes were good, but i thought that the main players were so 2 dimensional that i really couldn't give a dam# whether they lived or died and dare i say it the plot was a bit hokey.... LOVED the comedy english family and the totally over-the-top tracksuited german assassin though:)

great fun - nonsense but beautifully filmed nonsense - part farce part indiana jones - part french madness. not everyone's cup of tea but i really enjoyed it.

great sequel to city of god. this gritty life on the streets drama follows the stories of gang members and their families caught up in the gun fights.
