Pacific Rim (think of it as Godzilla vs Gundam Wing)

Okay, so maybe not precisely like Godzilla vs Gundam Wing, but it's still pretty freakin' cool (though I'm pretty sure it's going to suck hard )

i don't like how they're not actually IN the suits. seems like they're remote controlled. not sure if it's worth going to theatres for this.

I watched this trailer a few days ago and had the same thought.

Wish they could just make a gundam wing movie like this :P

I'd like to see one well made before I say they should never make one.

Imagine if pacific rim quality was made into a gundam movie.

Just like the dragon ball movie. I'm not against them making a live action but they did such a poor job.

Engless waltz is my favorite film btw

This movie is undeserving of the man who played Stringer Bell.

I'm surprised nobody has seen this movie and posted about it.

I saw this yesterday night at Metrotown, AVX 3D.

Solid movie. Good summer action flick. I would recommend it to anyone who likes big action scenes, monsters, robots, or just plain awesomeness. Don't get me wrong, the characters are way too colourful, some of the scenes are insanely cheesy. But this movie never took itself too seriously - so it fits perfectly. Sure, there are plot holes, but who cares, you have massive robots fighting massive monsters. You won't focus on the plots, don't you worry.

It's done well. It's not stupid transformers CGI where you can't make out any actual detail in the scene. It's done really well.

Worth watching in 3D, IMO.

Go and watch it.

A few of my friends have already seen it and they all have surprisingly good things to say about it.

Guess I should go see it soon.

Watched it yesterday. Pretty good. Lots of critics seem to be pleasantly surprised as well. Nothing groundbreaking but the visuals are pretty cool.

And for all the people comparing the movie to Transformers before even seeing it..it is nothing like transformers. That's a totally unfair comparison. The action sequences are shot and framed pretty nicely, compared to the mindless and unintelligible scenes in transformers.

This movie was sooooo much better than the POS Transformer movies.

All the fight sequences are shot well, because you can actually see what is going on

Watched it in 3D and was worth it.

Its more like Neon Genesis Evangelion live action,

-robot sync in the mind to humans check
-fighting monsters that pop out of the earth n other realm check
-girl with bob cut n blue hair check
-jager/nerv program last ditch effort check
-monsters increase in strength n frequency check

probably missing some more but yah

Just saw it tonight and it was pretty good. 3D effects were done well in this movie and there was non-stop action for pretty much the entire second half of the movie.

It made 91 million it's opening weekend. Not record breaking, but this movie will do well in the box office.

sweet movie, 8.5/10! if not for the long history of transformers, this movie blows it out of the water by leaps.

This is EXACTLY what I was thinking of as I left the theatre... Almost as blatantly obvious as Hunger Games = Battle Royale
They might as well purchase the copyrights instead of ripping off 99% of the concept and claiming it their "own" movie. Pretty lame.

Acting was bad and corny lines all over but Graphics were really nice though.
