There’s Something Down There

This will surely be another one of my obsessions, so before it dies down, I'll be sharing with you a recently watched movie that's now on my fave list. Here's "Pacific Rim"!

They're definitely not made out of "car" parts! XD

The movie is set in the year 2025, wherein mankind's existence is threatened by giant reptilian monsters called Kaiju. At first, we tried to fend them off by using military forces, but when it was proven that these monsters weren't just going to stop until we're all exterminated, we therefore created "monsters" of our own. These giant, robotic, monster-killing machines are called Jaegers.

The Kaijus however, prove to me smarter than we thought, which ends up with most of our Jaegers being almost destroyed. Now it's up to the Gypsy Danger with its pilots, reinstated Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and rookie Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), to end all the Kaiju War once and for all. 

It's a wrap! The movie's great with its action-packed fighting scenes which, I mostly caught myself swinging and ramming along with the Jaeger pilots as they crushed those freakin' Kaijus to kingdom come! Yeah, it really was an intense film, and the actors aren't so bad either. There were scenes that just made my heart melt, watching some of the characters say their goodbyes; they really grow on you, so points for the character developments there. 

So the effects, the acting, the directing were awesome! Thumbs up to Guillermo del Toro for a job well done! I'm definitely hoping for a wider scope in this interesting universe that you came up with, so if there's a sequel in the line, there's a good way to start. 

I also wished they explored the odd relationship between Raleigh and Mako, they are honestly so cute together and yet there weren't much "romantic" aspects to set your heart on so yeah, I guess that was the only bummer. So I'm keeping tabs on the progress of this film, if there is any. Until the next film showing! See ya! ;D
