Blog: Pacific Rim - something familiar?

< previous next >
Yesterday I took my nephew (i.e. persuaded my nephew he'd like to come with me) to see PACIFIC RIM. It was GRATE - lots of excitement, ACTION, funny bits, Idris Elba being AMAZING, and tonnes of bits where you think "Well, the obvious thing to happen here would be... oh, THIS!" but don't mind because it is done SO WELL. I read a review that said it was like watching a favourite cartoon from your childhood that you'd somehow forgotten about, and it totally WAS.

Still, there was something about it that seemed oddly familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe if I tell you what happens? It starts off with these HUGE MONSTERS appearing from SPACE and BASHING cities all over the planet.

Just when it looks like these huge monsters are going to destroy humanity some GIANT ROBOTS arrive.

And then there's a lot of BIG FITES.

I just CAN'T PUT MY FINGER on where I might have heard something like it before. Or indeed why I felt the monsters should have been dancing the hornpipe, but anyway: it was dead good. More please!
