Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim ★★★★

This is the ridiculously over-the-top summer blockbuster I've been waiting for. It has monsters, giant robots, an impending apocalypse, lots of destruction, bumbling scientists, manly fighters and every cliché line you could possibly imagine ("man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, bro", "as you and I both know...[some complicated scientific exposition they need the audience to know]"). I had a blast.
