Hey everybody, this is Dragonfufu here!
Today, I make a review and score about Pacific Rim that release in theatres on 12th July.
before we're going to my review, let's see the synopsis first.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Okay let's start to my review (Warning : it contains little spoiler)
Before I watch the movie, I see the trailer and the poster first.
the trailer looks cool and the poster looks awesome, there's 5 Jaegers in official poster.
Pretty cool, huh?
And I must say, this is looks like Gundam but in marine area. The battle action is like I'm watching smackdown in huge size version. (Jaegers vs. Sea monsters called Kaiju).
When the movie starts, it explain first about words like "Kaiju (Japanese) = Giant Monster & Jaeger (German) = Hunter" then going into the story.
at the first story, it's tell about Becket brothers (Yancy Becket and Raleigh Becket) "the best pilot and co-pilot of Gipsy Danger" going into their mission to kill some Kaiju.
Let's go shopping with this Jaeger.
but the Kaiju is too strong and makes Gipsy Danger damaged also his brother (Yancy Becket) captured by Kaiju and dead. When Raleigh controlling his Jaeger alone and still attacked by Kaiju, he finally kill it with the cannon. After that battle, Raleigh moves his Jaeger to the land and fainted due his seriously injured.
I lost "Rock-paper-scissors" game with Kaiju
after 6 years of incident, Raleigh working as construction worker and makes a giant wall to protect from Kaiju's attack but the wall can't protect them from it.
excuse me, I want to watch Equestria Girls!
then Marshal coming to Raleigh to hire him again as pilot of Jaeger to destroy the worm hole so the Kaiju never appeared again and stop the war.
This movie is not only focusing the battle of the giants, it's also has a sad story and family loves (Brother's love + Father & son's love) that makes heartwarming feel and don't forget the funny scenes from 2 crazy scientists XD but seriously, these 2 guys is nerd and weird but they have a major part in this movie, that's awesome xD
I see some actor/actress have a bad acting or doesn't fit with the character of this movie, especially Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori. Her voice is too innocent as a co-pilot of Jaeger or maybe too innocent as Mako Mori! She's better to be a musician or in drama movies than in Sci-fi action movie
Umm can I go now? I'm tired to stay with this pose.
also I see some unneccessary scene or dialogue that makes an awkward moments. but thanks for Animation, Music, and Storyline that help covering up! it's looks awesome!
Storyline : 8/10
Animation : 9/10
Music : 8/10
Character : 5/10
Humour : 7/10
Action : 8/10
Final Score : 7.5
It's worth to watch and more better if you watch in 3D.
that's my review and score about Pacific Rim.
Thanks for reading this silly blog post and you can discuss about it. :3
