The rationale del Toro made in the extras was conventional weapons resulted in too much collateral damage on the ground and to the civilians -- tanks and missiles just weren't accurate enough. I thought that was funny considering the fights between the monsters and robots resulted in heavy destruction of surrounding buildings lol .
Just go with it -- sometimes you need the force of a giant robot punching a kaiju to be effective vs a dinky little cannon from a tank or missile.
Well, yes, it is about giant robots, after all. If conventional weapons were effective, then no robots; therefore, no movie.
I was amused by the "logic" of the coastal wall. We can't kill 'em, so we'll fence them in. It made no sense at all, unless you've worked with politicians on critical issues. They come up with lamebrain ideas like this all the time.

better story and acting than the actual movie, thanks!
Fixed your link.
I liked Pacific Rim. The 3d version is on its way to me.
It seems to be a very good version of what it attempts to be. I enjoyed the acting and, well, all of it.
Is it realistic? While I'm watching, it is. Good popcorn flick.
I like this linked clip too.
What are they doing to fix this? Any recalls, by chance?

You know I realize that logic of physics and such are not adhered to very well but the movie moves along well. And I think the acting is fine. Fun flick. Consumed much popcorn.
I have strange problem (?) with my copy of PR 3D. Just after the first fight with Kaiju, when they lost signal with Gypsy, Marshall is seen and... my 3D is lost. Well - the movie still goes in 3D, cause picture is 'blurry', but my glasses are automaticly turned off just like they lost signal. After about 10 seconds glasses works propertly (turns on again). A moment later, there's scene when old man turns metal detector to the sea (Gypsy comes out the sea) and this happens again. Glasses 'reset' (going off for a while, and then turns on again).
I have Benq W1070 and Sainsonic glasses, Pioneer 150 player. Never happened before. Is it DLP signal problem (lost signal). Is DLP signal decodec somehow on bluray disc or it is made by projector ?
Checked it on my PS3 - same issue.
