I'm conflicted when it comes to Pacific Rim. On one hand, it's one hell of an action movie. It's loud, fun, and the characters are interesting enough that you start to care for them. Also, the universe is one of the most fully fleshed out worlds I've seen in quite some time. On the other, it's a bit cheesy and pretentious, especially with the whole "teamwork" motif. You can really tell this was Guillermo del Toro's passion project, and that's something I loved. It's a simple concept, but that's part of the charm for me.
