When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes--a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)--who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.


Watched Pacific Rim with Trois yesterday evening. The story started draggy and did not flow well in the beginning. As I watched further, it caught my attention with flash-back scenes wanting to find out more on the entire story. 

This film was better than I expected. Nice visuals and explosive fight scenes! Though it was a rather predictable film, I thought the entire plot got clearer and better towards the end!

Appreciate the chinese subs which helps me understand the dialogue!
