One Change That Would Make Pacific Rim a Classic

  • Published on Nov 12, 2017
  • Pacific Rim was so good, we can’t believe they didn’t do this one thing to make it freaking perfect. And no. That one thing isn’t “Add more swords.”

    ...And then the sequel did not live up to it at all, but thanks for the good times Cracked. 21 like Salute! Unsubscribe

    can/did someone make this? i love pacific rim (i just call it giant megaman, even cued up the theme song for the big battle first time i saw it), but this would be so much better. also, why cant we have an awesome megaman movie? it'd be like kid friendly terminator. loved that movie as a kid!

    I always thought that if they invented 'drift' technology AFTER dissecting a Kaiju and seeing it had two brains..that would have made the whole "this robot is too big to be controlled by one person" thing, way better.

    This is all irrelevant, because the sequel kills off Mako just like that.

    Lord Vetinari has that good old saying _Si non confectus, non reficiat_ or in English _If it ain't broke, don't fix it._ The Pacific Rim is good as it is, I like the exposure a lot more and to be fair Mako actor wasn't a great one and it would be even a bigger hit for the movie.

  • brooksdanielgary
    brooksdanielgary Year ago

    Nahhh. An instant classic would be if they invaded monster land only to find that the portal is really a time portal too. There are still monsters but they are all midgets in comparison. The heroes decide to get retribution and kill thousands of the monsters before they realize that they are in the past. As such, the monsters grow up to hate humans and build a genetic engineering program to engage them. Full circle.

    You made 2 big errors.

    the only problem is the studio never would have let Del Toro have Mako as the main protagonist, too much of a risk for an already risky project

  • Lucio F Adaime
    Lucio F Adaime Year ago

    Definitely agree with this while also making chuck (the aussie) have more of an explicit crush on Raleigh (which canon-wise he probably had as a kid and was totally heartbroken when Raleigh disappeared). This way we get super badass and awesome female lead that's comrades with the white boy with ptsd while the other white dude has tons of daddy issues and internalized homophobia WHILE THEY ALL FIGHT SUPER CRAZY ALIENS. Honestly, the story liberals want.

  • KM L

    I'm gonna chime in. So, let me get this straight. Earth spent a lot of their resources to build giant robots for close quarter combat to defend against giant monsters. Couldn't they just make projectile weapons that can target monsters from a distance(to kill or atleast weaken them) before using robots? It's like sending in your main battle tanks before artillery or airstrike bombardment. You will lose more tanks than usual and it would cost more to replace. Yea, its a sci-fi movie but we don't have to sacrifice common sense and great writing.

    No way dude, Hollywood Is going to put an unknown Asian female in an action blockbuster lead role over Jax from Sons of Anarchy? Even if they were going to do a female lead, with an Asian background, they would have cast Scarlet Johansson in the role instead of the Asian girl, and say Scarlet is Asian. Call me jaded, I am just talking from experience of what I have seen over 60 years of Hollywood casting practices.

  • Grae Hall

    Pacific Rim is a classic. There's many ways to skin the cat of improvement. Many of the ways are deeply & fundamentally subjective to the person suggesting them. It could be much better, it could be much worse. The suggestions laid out so effectively here would, I believe, make it much better. There are no changes required to make Pacific Rim a classic, however. Because Pacific Rim is a classic.

  • TESI303
    TESI303 Year ago

    That makes less sense. I would expect childhood trauma to be more potent than that of an adult, a trained soldier in this case, who has already faced these monsters before.
    What did not make sense was the whole two pilot system which they wrapped half of the movie plot around.

  • Chris Sandoval

    as much as i love pacific rim, this would be a better take. no way in hell the studio would've approved it at the time but after wonderwoman... may be we can get a similar arc for part three.

  • Aipe97

    100% agree, Mako should have been the protagonist, instead of boring dude that I cant remember his name even though you just said it in the video like a minute ago.

  • Lorenzo Torres
    Lorenzo Torres Year ago

    I admit that probably would have been a welcome change but I feel like the movie still has some glaring flaws that would have needed to be addressed before getting a 98% score. I know some people are dissing on Cinema sins lately but if you watch their video review of this movie they do point out some of the obvious flaws.

  • Nick Murphy
    Nick Murphy Year ago

    I would agree with this. Although I wonder what your reasoning that it might be masquerading as an anime makes it bad.

  • Jazzer995
    Jazzer995 Year ago

    Unless someone has already pointed this out I will say it, if you did swap the characters and go with your idea, then the movie would have been 100% a cliché.
    Reason: Because what you said happens in a large majority of anime out there, young main character in trouble, saved by secondary older hero, loses said hero to overwhelming odds, avenges said hero despite injured and facing worse odds, sometimes saves the world.
    There, I've just written every shouen anime plot out there.

  • Midnight x3x

    agreed, but still it will leave huge problem... it means, an Asian girl gets to be the protagonist... and that is what Hollywood can't accept ( in a big sci-fi big budget movie )

    This is absolutely correct. The problem is, Hollywood isn't going to feature an asian woman when they could feature a white man. That would take too much guts.

    Completely agree. They wouldn't have had to edit much for marketing material either, they could have just switched the leads and played a "gotcha" moment on everyone thinking Mako was the side-kick and whitey mc white boy (i honestly forget his name) was the lead. Would have been really good.

  • chaz murdoch
    chaz murdoch Year ago

    That would totally fix it but I wouldn't get a prequel that I really want to see. If nothing else then for the scene where the guy goes "I know how we fight these monsters...giant robots". I dare you to find an actor that doesn't make that sound like they're having some kinda brain injury

  • Nate Aaron
    Nate Aaron Year ago

    If you switched Obi-Wan and Anikan in Attack of the Clones it would have been way better. Anikan would have had more trouble being polite to the cloners (Obi-Wan had zero issues) and it would be more plausible Padme falls for Anikan after hearing his mentor talk him up than sandy conversations. Plus Obi-Wan failing to save Anikan's mother and rescuing him from Dooku woulda been way more interesting.
