Review: Pacific Rim

PR1

As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

PACIFIC RIM

This honestly could not get any cooler, for the first time they made an amazing Robot vs. Monsters movie, not how bad they made Godzilla. Guillermo del Toro knew what he was doing when he put this movie together, he is known for his pop culture movies, but this one looks like it will go mainstream and I hope from the success of this movie that they make more Giant Robot & Monster Movies. The movie is clear, people are fighting for their lives against these monsters which are out to wipe out human kind while they take over the world and the only tool they have are these giant robots. I love the mount of nerdy and sci-fi details that Guillermo brings to his movies, and Pacific Rim is no different, but when Del Toro does it you really understand it. These robots are reason enough to watch the movie, loved it.

Review: Zetman

Plot Summary: There are two forces in the world: the Zet, who are entrusted with the survival of humanity, and the Alphas, who have chosen an extreme form of justice. In a certain city, Jin lives under a bridge with an old man, struggling to pay off debts. He carries the destiny of humanity’s survival. Kouga lives on a hill and stands to inherit vast wealth. In his admiration for heroes, he seeks out the meaning of justice. They don’t know it now, but they are destined to one day meet.

The moment I saw the trailer to this Anime I thought of Guyver, at last they made something similar with the same dark tone. Zetman was heading in that direction and Zet was a cool character, with him slowly developing his powers fighting monsters. It picks up pace but then it just doesn’t grab you 100% and the other characters get a bit annoying, Kouga develops as well half way through as another main character and honestly I don’t care for him. The story diverts a little too much, even forcing a ridiculous romance, Zet is a badass and they should have capitalized on it. Its a fun anime but don’t get your expectations too high.
