Rating: 3 stars – ok not great but entertaining
Not the greatest film ever created but this is a movie to while away a few hours and numb the brain. Basic plot, robots were built to save the planet from invaders. No more funding/support for the Jaegers. They are the only true defense and they are on their own fighting creatures that have waited centuries for our home to become theirs. In this film, the scientists are equal parts help and idiots. Badly thought out action by the scientist who is also a kaiju fanatic equals more danger and action. Jaeger to the rescue. With romance too of course. Battle scenes, a dash of sadness here, a kiss there, a moment of life and death and hey presto, the movie is over!
Interesting: It takes 2 pilots to make one of these Jaegers move. Tough part, the 2 must sync – mind merge practically. That can be tough. Some get lost , overwhelmed by the memories. Would you want to be merged with anyone, even for short periods?
