A colossal disappointment from one of my favorite directors, Pacific Rim is a wooden, anger inducing mess.
How could the man who made Pan's Labyrinth have anything to do with this? Nothing seems fleshed out beyond a rough sketch. Sure the monsters and robots look cool and it's some fun to watch them fight but the human element is nothing but cliches and catchphrases.
Charlie Hunnam is an absolutely atrocious lead here, with the range of a cardboard cut-out. I felt bad for his co-stars since he clearly brought nothing to the table.
Good special effects can't save this wreck from being anything other than C grade sci-fi.
