L'introduzione è chiara e spiega bene in quale situazione ci troviamo, cosa non sempre ovvia. Grandissimi effetti speciali, visivamente bello da vedere. Se non fosse per i mostri, sarebbe una copia di Transformers. Ci sono moltissime svolte scontate, quasi tutte, non c'è niente di particolarmente nuovo od avvincente in questa sceneggiatura. Perlman ha il personaggio migliore e Idris Elba miglior interprete del film.
This film may be less childish and more visually effective than certain other giant robot films I could mention. But, it doesn't have much to offer beyond that. The fight scenes are hard to make out, the characters are one-note cliches, and you can spot every plot development miles away. For a Guillermo Del Toro film, it's shockingly generic, impersonal, and almost impossible to invest in.
It's the type of bedazzled spectacle that takes you back to your youth, when every movie had the grandness and amazement of seeing a larger than life story for the very first time. Its dramatic and emotional complexity may be off, but it's an epic sci-fi/action film from a director who actually knows how to use alot of money for big-creative scale. Del Toro shows why Marvel and James Gunn are just mega-budget hacks.
With budgets up to nine digits and counting, tentpoles are behemoths, but Del Toro—swapping catacombs for futurism—does well simply by making sure that the mythology is coherent and the characters are people you don't mind spending two hours around. It's one of his more impersonal, like most things that size, but it effectively proposes that disposable kaiju schlock was just lying in wait for the deluxe treatment.
Big robots fighting enormous city-destroying monsters. What is not to love by that concept? A lot of visual eye candy and these robots has a lot more personality than Michael Bay ever managed to give in numerous "Transformers" films. Ron Perlman steal every scene he appear in.
With his biggest film yet, Del Toro proves that he excels in both small films and action packed blockbusters. He does inject a lot of heart into both. You can feel his passion in every frame of "Pacific Rim". Such a satisfying and amazing experience. Too bad, I've missed it in theaters.
D'une trame lourdement basique, avec une version en relief souvent lamentable et une absence flagrante de poésie visuelle, présente dans bien des adaptations "monstrueuses" d'Inishiro Honda , cette couteuse production américaine manque de peu de sombrer dans l'insignifiance et la banalité, sauvée seulement par certains étonnants trucages visuels et quelques tentatives d'humour fort discutables... www.cinefiches.com
A big, loud, beautifully filmed homage to anime films surrounding mechas, human operated robots that are closer to mythical titans than man made creations. As usual, Del Toro's passion shines through, his love of the genre and the film he is making showing in every gothic inspired interior, every cheesy Top Gun-esque line. Pacific Rim is popcorn cinema at its loudest, dumbest, and absolute best.
