I thought the ideas, the technical work, the acting and writing were excellent/very good - 4 out of 5 stars. Both viewings have been enjoyable, with more to come.
To give a frame of reference, since this movie seems to be generally disliked, I thought "Man Of Steel" wasn't so great. (However, Chris Nolan, writer of MOS made a winner with "Inception", IMO.)
And, I think "Pacific Rim" is a better movie than MOS. As "Toe" said in the Pacific Rim thread: "This movie is flat out HT fun! It would be easy to pick it apart, but why? It doesn't take itself seriously and try to be something it's not. It's big dumb fun and on that level it works very well IMO.
Btw, I thought the now rather ancient movie "Solaris" was excellent as well.
