Pacific Rim 3D Premier Screening

Courtesy to Nuffnang, I am invited to watch Pacific Rim Premier Screening in 3D!

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.

There are mixture of love and hate in this movie. Do note that I grown up watching robot, superheroes, kaijin and Kaiju aka all from Ultraman, Super Sentai (Power Ranger), Garo and also Kamen Rider. Thus, I did not expect much from Pacific Rim. Despite I lower my expectation, I still felt I already know how this story coming and the battle been since I already watch too much such show. I do agree the CGi of Kaiju and Jaeger are impressive. The texture and modeling is awesome. However, the movie definitely suffer from crappy storyline.

Main character doesnt see suffer much from her brother lost instead, the main heroin the one suffer from her childhood nightmare. Bad character development and doesn't show how she can overcome her nightmare and fear. Dislike the main character monotone dialog, lack of expression and proper emotion. Robot VS kaiju happened too much on night time with fast moving camera, thus hard to catch up. Pretty hate the Gypsy Danger doesn't use the sword at the beginning. I do hate too the blue neon TRON alike on kaiju. Why must they have those light? LOL I actually been shouting in my heart whole movie "where the fuck is Ultraman!?"

Somehow, I found myself hardly enjoy it despite awesome battle between robot and kaiju. If you're seeking for those excitement, yea just go ahead and watch it! However the 3D doesn't seem do any justice to the movie. Beat me I don't hate the movie. Just couldn't feel any excitement. It is just me.
