Quote from Tripitaka
To all of you who've seen Pacific Rim:
What was so awesome about it? Thought about watching it next week with some friends including one girl and I'm not sure yet if we should take her with us. Do you think someone quite sophisticated but not girly might like it?
It's an action-packed film. Seriously, straight from the get-go we get some action, and it feels like it doesn't stop.
And knowing that it's an action flick, I was prepared to just enjoy some giant mechs kicking some Kaiju ass without expecting to get a good story behind it - but boy, the story...although it may not be stellar, I'll say that it was done a heck ton better than Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel. It was actually pretty decent!
Just don't be like some people I know and expect it to abide by real life physics

particularly the cargo-ship-bat scene.
Also, there are a few super corny scenes, but I thought they could be easily overlooked
