"You've got a robot the size of 20 story building using an ocean-cruising cargo ship to beat a monster the size of another 20 story building across the face. I was crying nerd tears".At the risk of introducing too much plot to get in the way of the monster bitch-slapping, in the near future humanity comes under attack by a succession of monsters called kaiju coming through a dimensional warp under the pacific. After several come through in succession, and millions of people die before the monsters can be killed, humans develop monster robots called jaegers (hunters) that are controlled by the mind and movements of the operators. After they find the load on the brain is too much for one person, the robots become controlled by pairs of operators who have to have their minds linked, so that every thought goes through both minds. Total mind meld. There: I've caught you up to the first two minutes of movie.

If you like escapist, action, sci-fi flicks, check it out. If you like that, chances are I had you with the quote.
Good review. It was a good movie that allowed me to have a bunch of fun while I was watching monsters and robots beat the heck out of one another.ReplyDelete
I saw it opening weekend in (baby)IMAX 3D.ReplyDelete
Nerdvana, baby!! I enjoyed the hell out of it. And the CGI was good enough to not break the suspension of disbelief.
My only complaint: Not enough bladed weapons! Jaeger-ninjas with bastard swords!
