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.

    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

    11:45 There is camera shake, but I actually think that this film is a wonderful example of how to use it well as a cinematographic tool.
    It's never just slapped on a scene to just make things feel edgy and hectic, but is used to sell the sheer size and power of the combatants.
    Gypsy Danger's entrance in the fight against Otachi is a perfect example, where the camera briefly quakes with the thud of the first couple of strides, but then quickly settles down.
    Yes, we get a few shaky cockpit scenes in response to heavy blows, but the camera shake never causes you to lose track of what's happening on screen. It's how it should be done.

    I hated what they did with Mako in Uprising. I mean, she was so awesome in *this* film, and could have carried the next one so well, but they just gaver her an administrative role and then unceremoniously killed her off. They could have at least let her die in glorious battle or something in the third act.
    Also, Ron Perlman always gets a win. **DING**

    People always laugh when I explain to them this movie is in my top three favorite of all time, but you explained SO well here why I adore it. Apart from the beautiful visuals, the characters are believable and liable to mistakes, the romance was more than just a romance(melding your minds together means so much more than just falling in love), and the scale and weight in the battle sequences were top notch and beyond entertaining. Majorly underrated movie.

    This movie really falls victim to the "I really don't care about this movie after the first thirty minutes" thing.

Some of the monotony of the time between mechs is just boring to me. I wish I liked this movie more
