Pacific Rim

I tend to get bored during action movies, and I had the impression that Pacific Rim was just going to be one long action sequence after another. I wasn’t very interested in seeing it based on the trailer, but I gave it a chance because I heard nothing but positive reviews from everyone who saw it.

The trailer definitely didn’t do the movie justice. Pacific Rim is not just an action movie. It actually has an interesting story and likable characters and it spends enough time developing them that you can become emotionally invested, instead of rushing to get to the next action sequence like I thought it would. There’s still plenty of giant robots beating up aliens, but not so much that it becomes too tedious. I only got a little bored once or twice.

I recommend seeing it in IMAX 3D.
