Never have the ads for a movie filled me with such low expectations. I had "Pacific Rim" pegged as a complete rip-off CGI fest that would have me falling asleep in in no-time. I couldn't have been more wrong if'n I tried. I loved the movie for what it was, great Saturday night, popcorn munching, mindless entertainment. Lots of visual references to "Gigantor", "Big-O" and a thousand other Japanese cartoon and anime fixtures. I know that Gojira MUST have fought some giant Japanese robiot at sometime during his annual destructive romps over Tokyo, but believe it or not, this movie almost makes it plausible. Acting was great, CGI good, and the sound? Wow! You could' do a lot worse.
