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.

Well, conventional weapons did bring down the first four, but it was long and drawn out resulting in multiple cities being lost.

How it should have ended: Pacific Rim

This movie was all about being a throwback to old school robot movies, and the only thing it was missing was the English being dubbed in biggrin.gif it has some great LFE and it seemed like it was constantly rattling my house smile.gif

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.

I saw that issue during the first fight scene as well. I kept changing everything about the 3D settings on my TV, wondering what I did to screw it up.

What are they doing to fix this? Any recalls, by chance?

Just finished watching the 3D version and it is fun. I looked for the issue from 10:30 to 18:00. Didn't see it; but that is a pretty frenetic fight.

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.
