“Watch Pacific Rim movie”, with Guillermo del Toro and comes to the boy buried in each of us , who raved kid to TV broadcasts Goldorak . The recent success of the DVD reissue of the latter demonstrated the persistent commitment of all those who grew up in the 80s in this populous imaginary robots and giant monsters. With a clear line screenplay, “Pacific Rim” works around issues identified at the outset in the prologue narrated by the character of Charlie Hunnam.
One way for the filmmaker to immerse the viewer in a coherent universe immediately and marked, is sufficient for himself, obtaining de facto adherence to a purely fantastic story. Circumscribing the birth of Jaegers / kaiju war these first minutes, the filmmaker and his story focuses on the climax of the conflict, making Homeric battles between the two types of “monsters” the visual heart of his film.
Even if he denies it, the kaiju Del Toro Veterans refer to HP Lovecraft. After the cancellation of the filming of the “Mountains of Madness”, an adaptation of the famous long-awaited novel, Del Toro is in the “Pacific Rim” a great outlet and opportunity to make a monster movie as a movie monster.

A rapid sequence that outperforms everything we have seen in a blockbuster in the last 5 years. If clashes are the reason for the film , and it is in a kind of fantasy of ultimate geek, to whom we have promised a showdown between its figures and Godzilla Grendizer , it remains that as in ” Hellboy ” del Toro likes to shake as the retina that our emotional fiber.
