Earth is being threatened by the KAIJU, which are prehistoric monsters from a time warp in the Pacific Rim. The earth has had to respond by making jaegers, which are super robots that take two people, acting in concert because of the drift (where their left hemispheres and right hemispheres merge and act as one) to combat the scourge. Metaphor here? I suppose so. This stars Charlie Hunnam from Sons of Anarchy, Idris Elba from Thor, and Rinko Kikuchi from Babel. The movie is noisy, it has many machines, it’s two hours and eleven minutes, which is at least a half-hour too long. The middle is really boring even though it is in 3D. It could have been interesting with a little more mythology and more on how the countries unite to combat this. 2 stars
