Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi epic “Pacific Rim” has hit both U.S. and various international screens this week.
Critics are generally quite up on the film, Rotten Tomatoes scoring it a 72% and 6.8/10, while Metacritic has it at 65/100. Box-office prognosticators on the other hand aren’t quite so sure what to make of the movie.
With its big budget, lack of big star names, and very specific young male fanboy demographic appeal, the film is more of a gamble than you might expect. I personally had great fun with it, superb visuals mixed with corny dialogue and a delightful sense of whimsy.
