At root, Pacific Rim is the Transformers Meet Godzilla. Though, saying that does Guillermo Del Toro’s majestic SciFy creation serious injustice. Neither the makers of the countless Godzilla sequels nor Michael Bay ever concocted as many human moments as Bill of the Bulls manages to conjure up. The characters are appealing, effective and when called upon, emotionally touching. Idris Elba’s Henry the Eighth speech is surprisingly powerful given that this movie is a live-action cartoon. But what a cartoon, imaginatively realized and wonderfully textured. The best popcorn movie this summer!
