    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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 )

    So, Pacific Rim should have a Rogue One opening?

    What about the idiots that decided not to just camp the rift the monsters came through. Oh that was every country in the movie.

    Nah, we already get that, and it’s already a classic XD

  • Cheyenne Reid
    Cheyenne Reid Day ago

    I have always thought that her as the lead makes a much more compelling story. The fact that screen writers and producers and directors couldn’t see that is bullshit.

    This is exactly the change that Zootopia made during production

    Mah-ko Mori. Mahko. Not Macko.

    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.

    Pacific rim has all this technology. Why doesn’t everyone just move to the moon?

    "Sir, my punches aren't doing enough damage!"
    "Why don't you use your sword at the start of the fight then?"
    "But sir, it doesn't look as good. I prefer to drag on the fight and then when my Jaeger is damaged I'll finish it off with better weapons. The techs can fix it for me in no time!"

    ...fuck. I adored Pacific Rim but always felt that something was missing - and you've hit the nail on the head. This would have been fucking fantastic, plot-wise.

  • Duncan Coltharp

    Oh man, you are so right! I would watch that movie twice as much as I watch the one we got.... which is already a lot.

    I wanna watch this instead of Pacific Rim. But I can't. Because it doesn't exist.
    Why are we still here? Just to suffer??

    This seems like the sort of thing that editors could arrange (like how there's multiple edits of the star wars and lord of the rings movies).

    Wait, you're telling me that one of Cracked's 2 minute usually filler videos was actually good and I agreed with it?

    Surely this is proof the robots have taken over.

    I did wonder why they buried the lead in that film ( _ba-dump CHING!_ ).

  • Jonathan Lebon
    Jonathan Lebon 3 days ago

    I am really picky when it comes to my movies but this film ticked the following boxes.
    Shizzload of good CGI.
    Giant Robots VS Giant Monsters.
    check check check.
    If it is a good story people want, go watch the notebook... :)

    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.

    They need to stop with white guy and asian girl couple. It's starting to be gross and cringey how much Hollywood like to pair Asian females with White dudes.

  • chaz murdoch
    chaz murdoch 4 days 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 Caucutt

    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.

    Except that Mako was the *worst* thing about the movie. In my opinion. I just found her annoying and as expressive as Kristen Stewart.

  • michael henry
    michael henry 4 days ago

    kinda agree plot wise. honestly a mecha groupie here, for the most part. but, i dont think they would need to change the whole perspective around. even just the first half as you indicated. still could've had to guy ply the hero role more or less, just play her end as far as background goes a little more. plus it would have made the trope line of "for my family" a little less cliche haha.

  • MarshmellowMan2

    FENG DOOZY 4 days ago

    Or if they also took out that shitty plot hole of the swords being OP but not being used from the very start.... for no reason. If they instead introduced it when they did, but as a package sent as a last resort because it was a prototype so they wouldn't know if it would be effective or not.
