Merge the basic plots of Transformers and Godzilla and you have the entire plot of Pacific Rim. Well with a tiny plot slice that is a bit of a spoiler, so I will leave it out here, but it doesn’t change the story in the least.
This movie is fun and interesting for the first hour and a bit. Then it is simply boring, repetitive and pointless. I would rate the first hour at an 8, the last hour as a 5 at best. Giving this a 6 overall is somewhat charity, as it’s simply far too long for what it has to offer. This is one of those movies where you’d enjoy it at 1 hour and 20 minutes. Not 2 freakin hours and 10 minutes. Starts out very well, and ends up painful and you wishing for the end to come quickly.
