“..the actors can't make "Pacific Rim" any better..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..Pacific Rim is big and dumb in a smart way..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
“..offers a few laughs and a few thrills, but it feels like a very large platter serving a disappointingly meager meal..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
“..offering up an apocalyptic spectacle in a spirit of unpretentious, unapologetic fun..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
3 of 5

“..is entirely in keeping with much expensively-made effects-heavy cinema of the present time: it's put together with such artistry and such devotion that it can't help but be impressive as a visual spectacle..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]
1.5 of 4

“..for those not fascinated by two hours of unabated robot vs. alien smackdowns, the movie holds little appeal..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 5

“..action sequences that are breathtaking in scope and ferocious in intensity..”
by Ben Rawson-Jones [Digital Spy]
3 of 5

“..a big, brash, unpretentious B movie that lives down to its billing: robots punching monsters - it does what it says on the Rim..”
by Ian Nathan [Empire Magazine]
“..a better-and-smarter-than-average humans-vs.-monsters spectacular..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
2.5 of 4

“.."Pacific Rim" is a big, lumbering, rock 'em, sock 'em mash-up of metallic heft and hyperbole, a noisy..”

LATEST REVIEWS

ALOHA :

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]

TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS :

“..Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as entertaining and engaging a film as any that Bollywood has delivered this year..”
by Harish Jaiswal [Cine Magazine Digital]

BARELY LETHAL :

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

SURVIVOR :

“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]

SAN ANDREAS :

“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
