So you may remember that we blogged about Guillermo Del Toro’s latest cinematic venture ‘Pacific Rim’, for those who didn’t – it looks insane, An alien attack combatted by ginormous robots piloted by humans is the scenario! (Here’s the trailer)
Anyway, this week was the week of the test screening – with the full movie due to be premiered this July, and boy were some of the responses fantastic, here are some mini reviews siphoned from the world wide web.
“Just saw "Pacific Rim." Thank You Guillermo Del Toro, thank you. I've been walking around in a daze for the last thirty minutes.”
“I just saw the nearly-finished "Pacific Rim." I know I'm prone to hyperbolic statements... but believe me... "Pacific Rim" is STUNNING. The extended "Battle of Hong Kong" sequence is the greatest sustained sci-fi action sequence in cinema history. "Pacific Rim" is the most satisfying summer movie IN DECADES. It delivers EVERYTHING... and I mean EVERYTHING you could possibly want to see”
“I won't tell u how awesome this movie might be and I definitely won't tell u how you might exit the movie feeling six years old again. Once you see it, you'll want to see it again. And again. Until you come to realize it'll NEVER be enough. You are physically dizzy and exhausted from excitement when it's all over”
Have these sold it to you yet? We know we’ll be going to see it as soon as it arrives in the UK!
