A film by Guillermo del Toro.
When monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. Massive Robot (Jaeger) was constructed to fight the creatures, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose mind are locked in a neural bridge. This works for a while but soon the humans have to think of something else to defeat the creatures. So on their last chance mankind turned to 2 individual a wash out pilot Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and a trainee Mako Mori (Rinko kikuchi) who are teamed up to drive a one of a kind Jaeger. Will they succeed ?
First this remain me of the Japanese film were they are monsters ( Kaiju) destroying human race, But there the story takes us where human have constructed Jaeger massive giant robot to combat them. The story has emotion in it not this mindless emotionless action Sci-Fi picture. The pilots don’t share just responsibilities they share each others memories, and must struggle not just to control their thoughts during combat, but to avoid being thrown off when their co-pilot lets a distracting or traumatic image slip through. Raleigh who lost his brother thought that the bond that he had with his brother ca not be replicated until he meet this young woman named Mako. Idris Elba is a father figures for Mako who saw her parent died from a Kajiu. Also Del Toro made Elba wear a suit in most movies they were a military uniform or a jump suit of sme kind that came to a surprise for me. They are many great shot in this film and the special effect are great. Over all it has a good story a great director and a nice ensemble cast.
