I'm a bit tired of alien invasion films unless they have some twist, but I'm sure the next world war will be fought in those "soldier boy" suits.
From the title alone it sounded like a new disaster film about volcanoes. I've even more tired of those. How long before a Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) film?
As much as I rate Del Toro highly as a director, he's not immune to making tripe.
Exhibit A: Mimic....simply not a good movie.
I agree alien invasion movies are getting tiresome due their quantity in recent years but I'll reserve judgement on Pacific Rim until I've seen it for myself.
Just watched this film on disc, and I was pleasantly surprised.
When I saw the first trailers, I thought that the whole monsters vs. giant robots thing was pretty hokey. All comparisons to classic Japanese monster films, Transformers and Power Rangers aside, I found Pacific Rim to remarkably entertaining -- somewhat reminiscent of the first RoboCop and original Starship Troopers, without the graphic violence found in both of those Paul Verhoeven offerings.
