Cool Videos: Honest trailers tackles Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim!

10.23.2013

While Guillermo Del Toro's robots-vs-monsters epic, PACIFIC RIM, didn't exactly demolish the box office, it didn't exactly flop either and has built up a fanbase of massive proportions. It's one of the few movies I saw more than once in the theater (in 3D as well) and was happy I did so. So, I'm sure some of you will be scornful that an honest trailer was even made for this one, but even as much as I love the film it's hard to deny that it's got some issues, which this Honest Trailer brings to light. Frankly, this is one of the "nicest" Honest Trailer's I've seen, because even as stupid as PACIFIC RIM is it's just as cool. It's an easy movie to forgive by sheer entertainment value alone, but it's okay to laugh and some of the silly shit that's peppered throughout. For that, I think it's earned this well-placed Honest Trailer.

Enjoy:

PACIFIC RIM is now on blu-ray/DVD. Get it here!

Extra Tidbit: I truly hope they make a sequel, but I also hope they can tighten things up a bit in the process, story/character wise.

LoL... I remember a while back, I made a similar comment about Elba's speech always reminds me of Pullman's speech from ID4, whenever I hear.

This is probably my favorite honest trailer. Made me laugh and cry. Especially the noises. This trailer is spot on, and this is still one of my favorite movies of the year. It really is big and dumb, but the fun factor was an 11. I will gladly wait for the sequel.

By no means was this an amazing movie, but it definitely wasn't the worst either. It was entertaining. It was a fun, popcorn, summer blockbuster and it never once tried to pretend to be anything other than that. It met my expectations and my inner 9 year old had a blast. Sure the premise is ridiculous, but they actually come up with a somewhat satisfactory reason for having large robot suits battling monsters. I enjoyed it for what it was

quite possibly the best one they have done yet. I remember telling everyone when this was coming out that it reminded me of Independence Day, where it was cool when it came out but upon further review is really lame, has a weak story and terrible character development. Everyone down voted me then, only to have it come up in almost every review and now this video. The only thing I was wrong about with Pacific Rim was that it was actually worse in the story, acting and character development

Figures,

they struggle to come up with flaws in the film and mostly just comment on why it is so very awesome. Either that or they just don't "get it".

actually they picked out quite a few things, like acting, story, plot holes and terrible characters, that's kind of the part of the movie that counts. If it didn't then he should have just released the 30 minutes of total action in this movie by itself. Almost anyone can do great action with 250 million dollars, it was the stuff in between that left us all underwhelmed, we unless you were on of those guys the producer talked about who saw it like 5 times that actually saved its box office from

Not every movie needs to meet certain [link] criteria. This one works perfectly with character "types" rather than fully developed people, and shotgun storytelling rather than full-fledged yarn weaving. It's better as as a Tokusatsu modernization in that sense, and also harkens to other films such as Top Gun in its simplicities.

Not only is this hilarious

But it perfectly sums up how i felt about it. Incredibly dumb but in all the right ways which made it 10x more awesome.

A movie title especially designed to make life easier for porn-producers, who struggle coming up with parody titels....

Having watched the special features and watched the film again with Guillermo del Toro's commentary, I've come to appreciate it even more than on the first and second viewing in the theatre. Sure, it is comprised of familiar elements, but I think del Toro has done an ace job of welding those elements together and creating a rich, textured and exciting world and mythology from it. It's really awesome how much was done in-camera, because this is seen as a visual effects-heavy film but the sets

It's really awesome how much was done in-camera, because this is seen as a visual effects-heavy film but the sets that were built for this, particularly the interior of the conn pod, are really impressive. Those actors really did look extremely worn out, it was described as "being on an elliptical for 14 hours a day".
