Our six-film tribute to the visionary Guillermo del Toro continues with del Toro’s dazzling 2013 sci-fi/action spectacular PACIFIC RIM!

A consummate explorer of the nature, complexity, and ultimate meaning of a “monster,” here del Toro asks: what if it takes a monster to destroy a monster? In the not-so-distant future, monsters known as Kaiju have risen from the sea to lay waste to humanity, leading to a brutal war that has taken millions of lives and diminished the earth’s resources. To battle the Kaiju, humanity have constructed Jaegers, massive robots controlled by two pilots who share control in a neural bridge. When even the Jaegers appear powerless against the evolving Kaiju, mankind’s last hope lies on two Jaeger operators – traumatized former pilot Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and new trainee Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi).

Featuring dozens of meticulously detailed creatures designed by del Toro, Pacific Rim once again finds the director employing fantasy to explore the real-life themes of war and peace, love and loss, and human heroism and villainy, this time eschewing his traditional horror genre tropes for those of science-fiction.

“Del Toro is a dreamer. He’s a visionary. If you give him a pile of money to make enormous robots fight enormous monsters at the end of civilization, he will work to make Pacific Rim a movie that makes you feel all the enormousness.” – Wesley Morris, Grantland

“4/4. Pacific Rim knows what sort of film it wishes to be. It is that film – and much more.” – Matt Zoller Seitz,
“In a field rife with impostors and poseurs, Del Toro, like his mentors, is the real deal. It’s good to have him working his magic again.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
