Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro teams up with Legendary Pictures to bring audiences a unique take on the monster film with this sci-fi production. Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) stars as a washed-out controller and pilot of a series of robots called Jaegers, which are put into production after Earth is invaded by a species of giant monsters, the Kaijus. The Brothers Bloom's Rinko Kikuchi co-stars as a trainee whom Hunnam is psychically paired with in order to pilot the last beacon of hope -- a decommissioned Jaeger assigned to stop the Kaijus once and for all. Thor's Idris Elba leads the rest of the starring cast, which includes Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky and Ron Perlman. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
*Super Robot VS Godzilla Flashback*
If you grew up watching the Anime Cartoons of the 70's and 80's and even the Godzilla films. Than this is for you! Robots operated by Men and Women like Voltron,Tranzor Z, Starvengers, Grandizer,Starblazers, Robotech and my favorite Gaiking. This was the era before Gobots and Transformers where the fate of the world depended on the talents scientist man made machines versus the Alien invation now tide into Godzilla and Ultraman and Megalon. Well Done! Any Studio who takes on these Classics will have Avatar and Transformer success if it lands in the hand of the right directors. The likes of Michael Bay and James Cameron Caliber! Not the way Superman film was butchered the first time.
I think it was a pretty fun movie if you like giant robots and Monsters. The plot was not as bad as i heard. It wasnt a great plot but i dont think you can expect it from this type of movie. Some of the Sci fi aspects where goofy such as the "drift and merging of minds" but I give it 4 stars.
