We always thought the aliens would perhaps strike us from the sky. However, giant monsters Kaiju rise from a portal beneath the Pacific Ocean and threaten the existence of Earth. Humans must now fight back and save their race. But that is an impossible task considering the humongous size of these monsters. So to scrap the enemy, special types of massive robots, known as Jaegers, are designed. They are controlled simultaneously by two pilots. The robots are pit against monsters; this should be an amazing contest for action suckers.
No doubt Pacific Rim will be high on action quotient, featuring some astonishing CGI, but it will have some tender and inspirational moments too. Idris Elba, who plays Stacker Pentecost, in his stirring speech before launching the robots says, ‘Today, at the edge of our hope, at the end of our time, we have chosen to believe in each other. Today, we face the monsters that are at our door. Today, we are cancelling the apocalypse.’
