In the interest of not shitting all over everyone’s super-happy-kaiju-mecha parade, I’m not going to enumerate all the things in the movie that completely broke my suspension of disbelief. Suffice to say that when I realized I was considering whether Sharknado was more plausible than Pacific Rim, I realized that maybe this movie wasn’t meant for me.

That said, it was definitely a gigantic spectacle, and full of Guillermo Del Toro’s usual love of vivid imagery. I don’t regret seeing it for a minute, but I do wish my expectations had been a little more suited to the movie I went to see.

What about you? Seen it? Skipping it? Love it? Brain asplode?
