I am in the minority, but I thought this movie was AWFUL.
I am right there with you. I really wanted to love this because I like big loud expensive summer blockbusters, but the human characters really ruined it for me.

The acting was hard to bear but the action scenes helped make the chore worth while.

Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

Trizzly, thank GOODNESS I'm not the only one who thought that! I've been talking to people recently because this movie is coming out on blu-ray and I had really make me feel like I was alone on this one!

I can really enjoy a campy movie, I can overlook some bad acting or awful characters, I can pretty easily turn off my brain to enjoy a nonsensical action flick, but this one might have been too much of all of the above for me to handle. I mean, I enjoyed the latest G.I. Joe flicks and Transformers movies pretty dang thoroughly, by all accounts I should've been easily satisfied by this one... but nope.

Maybe my expectations from Guillermo Del Toro were off-based or too high, so I am willing to give this another go...

Thanks for the review! I'm gonna have to rent it and check it out before I buy it, due to the fact there are so many different feelings about this film from friends and those on this post.

Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

I saw this in the theater when it first came out and was very disappointed. I will have to rent it and watch it again at home to see if I like it with good bass. It may change my mind about it a little bit.

Sounds to me as though opinions are all over the place on this movie. I am one who tends to like a movie more times than not so I still plan on adding it to the collection.

Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

This movie is all about the amount of bass that I (speaking for myself) am expecting.
I have NEVER been more excited about a movie!

Well I have it and am watching it tonight with my friend (In 3D!) at reference level with my 4x 21's and 4x 18's at +12DB hot on the subs!

I REALLY, REALLY can't wait !

This of course coming from a basshead!!!
There better be a TON of bass in this movie!
I really couldn't care less of the acting!
For me it's all about the BASS!

Regards,
