Description

Acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) brings out the big guns in this sci-fi action epic about a ragtag band of humans that band together in the year 2025 to fight legions of monstrous creatures rising from the sea. Using massive piloted robots to combat the alien threat, earth's survivors (including Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, and Rinko Kikuchi) take the fight to the invading alien force lurking in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless enemy, the forces of mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee—who now stand as earth's final hope against the mounting apocalypse.

  • Fantastic delight in Dolby Vision

    Truly a great movie to stretch your TV’s HDR/ Dolby Vision talents. Lots of dark scenes populated by neon lights. Excels over the standard version prior to this release.

    Had this just been a film where robots fought monsters and that was all, it would've been fantastic. Unfortunately there was some pointless storyline thrown in that used a load of tired cliches, had terrible dialogue that was usually poorly delivered and generally felt like it was there to waste time before the next robot fight. As with most Del Torro film, the visuals are stunning, but unlike other of his films, that's all there was that was good. This is much more of a rental film that a buy, as I can't imagine there being much point to watching this film more than once.

    Good if you like mindless fun without wanting to take a movie in anyway seriously. The ending was way too obvious, and I just wanted to scream at them to have these giants robots pick up giant weapons and use them to cleave the monstors in twain. They did late on which seemed like they missed a trick. Have to ask though why there is always a need for a love match in a movie? Detracts from the story and can make a passable movie rubbish.

    Possibly the worst direction and screenplay I've ever seen. Overpowered by action scenes and great special effects. Don't even get me started on the dreadful acting. Poor!!!!
  • Great VFX Work

    Unlike the weightless and nimble Transformers the art direction in this movie shows how big heavy robots should look like and move. The sense of scale this creates is awesome. Too bad Del Toro took a couple of cheap short cuts in the storyline department, no reason to get lazy here just because u want to make a “dumb” robo action movie. I’d give it 3.5 stars if i could. Still a must watch if u remotely like this sort of movie.
  • Giant robots punching giant monsters

    By Me. No, me
    Don't go into this movie hoping for the best plot and dialogue you've ever seen. Accept it for what it is: a big robot/big monster punch up. That's not to say the plot and dialogue is awful it's just not what you should be here for. Special effects, action, awesomeness is what and it has it all,
  • TOO AWESOME FOR ANYONE

    1st attempt if watching this film - only made 20 mins - 2nd attempt, nothing else better to do and class this as a rainy Sunday film - acting and plot not the best but better than doing the weeding!!
  • Worth a watch
