Release Date: July 12, 2013
In this action packed sci-fi adventure, Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi star as war between humans and creatures of the sea duke it out over/around various cities across the globe. In order to match up with the sea creatures known as the Kaiju, a team of two specific individuals must pair up and connect each others minds with one another and enter a manmade juggernaut of a robot known as Jaegers. There are certain different levels of Kaiju that the humans have been able to study during the war and for the most part, the humans know what will be coming at them in the heat of battle. When the Kaiju begin to evolve in their maneuvers, drastic changes are going to have to be made in order for the survival of the human race to live on.
Some may say that while watching a brief preview of this film, this is “Transformers” all over again. I had that feeling going into watching the movie, but within minutes, that feeling went away as this is a whole new concept. Seemingly the entire movie flows smoothly and you certainly lose track of time. Charlie Day certainly brightens up the cast with his sense of humor. All in all, there is just enough action and the script is able to keep my attention throughout most of the movie, so I will be adding this movie to my wish list and someday I will be adding this movie to my collection.
