  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[T]his futuristic world has been carefully thought out and physically created with great skill."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Idris Elba is impressive, as always, as Stacker Pentacost, a last-ditch military commander..."
    Wall Street Journal

    4 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he fights are astonishing....Some of the whirling action has a geometric beauty that's faintly Cubist, and each fight contains surprises..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his being GdT, the creatures are beautifully ugly creations: machete-faced, blue-acid-barfing, multi-tail-lashing...there's a Harryhausen-like pulp majesty to their stately wrestles with the Jaegars."
    Total Film

    3 stars out of 4 -- "PACIFIC RIM, thank the gods of cinema, is the work of a humanist ready to banish cynicism for compassion."
    Rolling Stone

    "Godzilla fans will appreciate the minor-key blare that accompanies the monsters rampages, as well as a city-in-ashes flashback that evokes the somber tone of the 1956 original."
    A.V. Club

    3 stars out of 5 -- "A big, brash, unpretentious B movie..."

    "[A] gargantuan monsters-vs.-mammoth-robots smackdown..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Guillermo del Toro's paradoxically derivative yet imaginative sci-fi epic is everything that monster movies since the beginning of time might have wished they could be."
    Hollywood Reporter
