Pacific Rim (2013)

I saw "Pacific Rim" on Tuesday night and really enjoyed it, despite not always following everything that happened in the giant jaeger mecha versus kaiju fight scenes. It is not an original movie. But that is not bad, because it is more of an avatar of giant robot/monster movies/anime. Also, the acting was good and was allowed to be over the top when appropriate. (Ron Perlman, for example.)

Also, lots of Idris Elba. I was amused to see how he was taller than everyone except, like, the giant mecha jaegers. And he got to be badass, and have angst, and also shout at people. And wear a fabulous suit in which he looked fabulous. I was well satisfied.

Also, I think the 3D was some of the best I've seen, so far as just being there giving depth throughout as opposed to occasionally lobbing trees into your eyes.

I would not mind seeing it again!
