Pacific Rim



SYNOPSISThis film is set in the 2020s, when Earth is at war with the Kaijus, colossal monsters which have emerged from an interdimensional portal on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. To combat the monsters, humanity unites to create the Jaegers: gigantic, manned humanoid robots, each controlled by at least two pilots, whose minds are joined by a neural bridge. Focusing on the war's later days, the story follows Raleigh Becket, a washed-up Jaeger pilot called out of retirement and teamed with rookie pilot Mako Mori as part of a last-ditch effort to defeat the Kaijus.

REVIEWPacific Rim is a film with more emotion than the trailer you’ve just previously saw. The hero, Raleigh Becket is an ace pilot who gave up robot-piloting for coastal wall-building when his partner and older brother Yancy died fighting a monster. The pilots don't just share physical responsibilities, they have unfettered access to one another's memories, and must struggle not just to control their thoughts during combat, but to avoid being thrown off when their co-pilot lets a distracting or disturbing image slip through. Raleigh thinks the bond he had with his brother can never be replicated, that his loss was irreplaceable but his doubts faded as he's paired with a young woman named Mako Mori, who lost her parents in a Tokyo monster attack many years earlier. The story of their growing partnership is not just that of pilot/co-pilot, but brother/sister, or friend/friend (but not boyfriend/girlfriend, refreshingly). It's about learning to trust another person enough to allow their consciousness to fuse with yours.

CHECK THIS OUT!Another ending...

WHY IS THIS SCI-FI?This film is a representative of the science-fiction genre because it the story is set in a futurisstic setting with the huge advancement of robot technology. Furthermore, it also deals with extraterrestrial life coming out of a portal from space. To sum it up, this sci-fi film is the battle between human technology and extraterrestrial life set in the near future.
