Visually, there has never been a better kaiju film than Pacific Rim, amazing effects & beautiful photography. The story though... thin... very thin. That disappoints me but it doesn't really detract from the film itself, which achieves it's goal: to be an amazing monsterfest!
Those pictures really make me excited. If they're willing to go that far into the minutia of the universe than the movie has an excellent chance of being a fan pleaser. We should also keep in mind that if PR is dumb mindless action, than Godzilla is going to be completely different. It will be smart, hard and serious, which is what Godzilla NEEDS to be right now to survive and be noticed.
Also: did anyone else stay to the very end of the credits? There was no teaser but there was a dedication to Ray Harryhausen and Ishiro Honda. That was sweet.
Thank You for Reading.
... Huh the last guy I taked about this with he was trying to argue logic into the movie lol I do kinda have to agree with the Kaiju angle, buuuut then again Godzilla had the movie to himself when he debuted. I might have helped if the class five had showed up earlier or if the Kaiju that killed out main character brother had been serious scarred and the upgraded to a class five. But then those are all "coulda woulda shoulda" statements. Perhaps in PR2.
Definitely the best Action movie of the year, and I would love to see an animated series of this franchise.
