    It was mainly special effects but not much of a storyline. I'd give it a 5 from 1 to 10

    So it's like The Matrix: Reloaded, but without Monica Bellucci's amazing boobs?

    Not that good. I'm giving it a 5 but that's really pushing it.

    It's Hollywood meets Evangelion - the Japanese anime about giant robots protecting the earth from ever-more powerful creatures.
    It's fun but built out of cliches. And it doesn't take itself too seriously, I don't think.

    I enjoyed watching it but do agree with cosmic's comments.

    I pulled it up in Netflix and can't remember watching it so I added it to my Queue.


    Farrah Fawcett, Kirk Douglas, now there's two names you don't see together very often.

    My favorite movie quote.

    Pain & Gain "I watch a lot of movies, I know what I'm doing" (The Rock, Mark Wahlberg)

    Fair enough. I guess I made a mistake by looking it up on Wikipedia, because it was directed by Guillermo del Toro (who is great), has a decent cast, and somehow made over $400 million worldwide...all without me even hearing of it until now.

    I remember watching Evangelion a long, long time ago and loving it. I'm assuming this movie is nowhere near as good?

    I watched Kill Bill Vol. 1 on TV the other day. I've seen it dozens of times and own the DVD, but still watch it when it comes on. I'm a big Tarantino fan, and that's probably my favorite of his movies.

    I've watched both volumes several times and never know when I will watch them again, but I'm sure I will.

    I don't have a good memory of this one but Netflix shows I only rated it 4 stars. So I liked it, but it could have been better.

    I've only ever watched the re-worked Evangelion "films" that have been done recently. They're good, and much more philosophical than "Pacific Rim" - but then there's much longer to tell the story.
    "Pacific Rim" is enjoyable, in a popcorn, switch brain off, don't ask too many questions sort of way.
    I think it depends as well how strong you like your cheesiness to be!

    Cowboy sense you liked Kill Bill Vol 1&2 I'm going to out on a limb and suggest you probably like other high body count movies? One that comes to mind that I enjoyed more than once was Commando.
