Synopsis

When great numbers of monsters, 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, that 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.

With only four Jaegers left and 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 a new, untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi). Together, they are mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

  • 1 star "A chiched, illogical mess. Even fans of FX films should be disappointed, as all the fight scenes are set during rainy nights, making this visually incomprehensible. It's time to tell the truth about Del Toro: his work is mediocre at best."
  • 3 stars "Won't appeal to people who are not already into this type of stuff. I don't understand why the robots, that do most of their fighting in water, look humanoid? Also why do they do they mostly do hand to hand combat when guns are available?"
  • 1 star "Boring. Good special effect but thst's it."
