Guillermo del Toro has been involved with learning and making films since he was 8 years old. His style of presentation, mixing symbols of horror, fantasy and religious imagery provide the basis for powerful stories. His latest film, Pacific Rim is no exception. The statement Del Toro gave about this film describes his intentions well, “This is my most un-modest film, this has everything. The scale is enormous and I’m just a big kid having fun.”
Take one look at the poster and it seems to shout back, this is an updated response to Godzilla & Cloverfield. It’s Transformers against monsters. This is a technological answer to how do you respond in size and power. Giant, cerebral linked mechanized warriors acting as defenders against monsters the size of Mount Rushmore. What’s cooler than cerebral linked giant robots? How about being inside them while having to fight off the monsters. It’s the next step and shows the genius in advancing the formula. I haven’t seen the film yet but it looks fascinating from watching the trailers. PREPARE THE BUTTERED POPCORN!
