Everything GREAT About Pacific Rim!

  • Published on Aug 20, 2016
  • Pacific Rim has a C- critic score, which is actually not terrible based on the premise. But I believe it actually steps beyond the borders of its genre....Nah. But it's still awesome and better than a C-. So this is why the critics are wrong. Here's everything right with Pacific Rim.

    A little late, but the idea of the wall made perfect sense, they thought the Kaiju were mindless animals and that they'd reach the walls and try and find somewhere else to roam

    Wait, Kaiju blood is bad, right? So that's why they don't use swords often, and they normally use either blunt or plasma weapons, right?

    .........Then what the *FUCK* were the Chinese Government thinking when literally the only weapon they gave Crimson Typhoon was 3 fucking saws?

    • Jester
      Jester Month ago

      +Shadow Strider
      But it obviously cuts things. Really well at that. Look at the 5 minute clip of Crimson Typhoon fighting, and you can see that the saws actually cut, instead of just giving the kaiju a bunch of bruises.

    The tanker is a bat, not a sword. Not quite a bat with nails in it, more like an aluminum bat. And the fact there is NO way it would survive being handled like that does not prevent its use from being AWESOME!! I knew it wouldn't work and I didn't care. :-)

    How can you not "win" this awesome line: "Now we have to make a choice here. We can either sit and wait or take these flare guns and do something really stupid."
    Recognizing that it's a stupid idea and doing it anyway as an UP YOURS to the kaiju (and maybe buy Hong Kong just a touch more time) is just too awesome!! :-D

    I never understood why no one liked this movie, I really liked it! Personally I’ve never played the game or watched the anime? I forgot where it came from... but I felt like this movie alone was a great movie. It has good characters and overall I loved the attention to detail. Anyone who isn’t a fan of this movie- what don’t you like about it? I’m genuinely curious, since I haven’t seen the anime or played the game.

    Fact Fiend did a video about the names of the Jaegars and then complained about the fact that more people apparently went to see Grown Ups 2 than go see a movie about big robots fighting alien monsters in the ocean.

    so according to that, a movie about a guy giving himself and his friends a vacation to an exotic location sold more tickets in the opening week than a movie about giant robots fighting against illegal immigrants from another dimension, though i did google both movies, and Pacific Rim, according to google, earned like twice the amount in ticket sales, though i believe that's a total ticket sale that they're showing.

    If you pay attention to Leatherback you can see the extra skin on its arms. When I saw it the first time it reminded me a little bit of a bat. I think they used a similar structure so while it's a good twist its logical and you can kinda see it coming if you're a bio-nerd

    Fun facts:
    - If you'll notice in Raleigh and Chuck's fight scene, one of the things he uses against Chuck is an actual open-handed slap, followed by Raleigh dropping and using Chuck's weight against him. Now who used that exact same technique earlier in the film? That's right: Mako, during their "compatibility" montage. Chances are, Raleigh wasn't even thinking about it. He just went for it. They've only Drifted ONCE, and yet, he's already incorporating her movements into his fighting style.
    - Chuck is so antagonistic towards his father because when the first kaiju ever hit Sydney, Herc had a choice between saving Chuck's mum, Angela, or Chuck. He only had a few minutes to do so, seeing as Jaegers didn't exist back then and the only way to end kaijus were to nuke them. So he ended up picking Chuck, never knowing whether it was the kaiju or the nuke that killed his wife, and Chuck still resents him for it.
    - The Kaidonovskys hold a world record for longest neural handshake ever, clocking in at 18 hours. Theirs was a particularly interesting case, seeing as they were husband and wife, instead of being blood relatives. A true testament to how strong their bond is.
    - Mako's family made swords for a living. Her adding the chainsaw swords to Gipsy Danger is most probably her way of honoring her family's trade.
    - Raleigh was born in 1998; Mako and Chuck in 2003.
    - The blue streaks in Mako's hair symbolize the coat she was wearing the day she lost her family and the color of kaiju blood in general. It's her way of reminding herself that she WILL get revenge for her family someday.
    - The dominant pilots are usually on the right. (e.g. Herc, Sasha, Yancy, Stacker, etc.)
    - The pose Gipsy Danger does before going into battle - punching the left palm with a closed right fist - is actually a way of showing respect in martial arts. It basically says that the person doing it does not intend to harm innocent beings, and will only do so if provoked.
    - Among the last Jaegers, Cherno Alpha was the only one that didn't have escape pods.
    - There were over 51 Jaegers and kaijus made for this film. Every week, the staff would vote on their favorite ones. Most of the Jaegers were from countries found around the Pacific Ring of Fire, such as Hong Kong, China, the Philippines, Japan, Korea, and more.
    - The reason Newt and Hermann are Drift-compatible is because, just like Raleigh and Mako, they have sparred before ... only VERBALLY, and on a daily basis, too!

    I dont think Pacific Rim ist bad but ... yeah i cant watch it without thinking: This is the American Verison of NGE but without the religiose aspects, with just 30% of the character/story depth and with a lot more focus on the action instead of the characters mindset and what they think about there situation. I just cant like PR as much as NGE
