Okay, it was fun. Stupid, but fun, like a Godzilla movie for the 21st century.
I do not understand all the excitement, though. It's not like it was better than any other special effects blockbuster. Giant robots, giant monsters, and a thimbleful of plot, most of which is dumped on us in a voice-over in the opening scene.
Apparently Pacific Rim has a fandom, now? I mean, what is there to write fan fiction about?
No, no, don't tell me. Yes, I already know Transformers porn exists. Jesus wept.
