About Pacific Rim
Giant robots battle monsters in this epic action film from the director of Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth. Legions of terrifying creatures that come to be known as Kaiju rise from a portal at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and wreak havoc all over the world, destroying everything in sight and killing millions of people. Over time our leaders deplete the planet's resources in a war that is impossible to win as they try to stop the Kaiju. Their best method to fight them involves Jaegers, giant robots piloted by two people whose minds have been linked. But even these powerful machines cannot eradicate the Kaiju completely. The Pan Pacific Defense Corp decides to pair washed-up, grief-stricken former pilot Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) with Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), a trainee who lost her family in a Kaiju attack. Can their unlikely partnership turn the tide?
