There’s something about Giant Robots that increases testosterone and has you praying at night that fundamental laws of physics would bend just enough to allow the technology to to birth just in time for an interdimensional war. Pacific Rim was about giant robots, and some other things, like team work or whatever, but mostly about giant robots.
Inasmuch as Snakes on a Plane promised naught more than a plane with snakes on it, Pacific Rim promised only robots vs. monsters and threw in some emotional content for garnish. Plated warm, served six. I walked out of the theater with 3 great urges.
- Have a Neon Genesis Evangelion marathon
- Draft plans for a full body Jaeger pilot suit
- Write a song about the movie
As of right now I’ve only crossed number 3 from my list and here it is, submitted for your approval.
