Flash Review: Pacific Rim [2013]



Pacific Rim really spoke to the little kid within, but did next to nothing to sate the 23 year-old. There’s cliché after cliché after cheesy line in this loud, repetitive story, where visuals take center stage and everything else falls by the wayside. At the core of Rim, we get a very bland central pair (Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi); luckily we have Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman to save the cast. If it looks like I’m being too kind on this film with my star rating as opposed to my review, it’s because, after all is said and done, it is fun, and the visuals are really that good.
