(80) Pacific Rim is an easy sell for those who have foot-tall Godzilla figures staring down on them from their computer desks. Some might lament that Del Toro didn’t endeavor to break from convention, but this giant genre mash-up is highly watchable and visually rich. Guillermo tackles the tired summer blockbuster – done to death by the likes of Bay and Emmerich – and demonstrates just what a legitimate director can do with similar resources. He doesn’t really do it differently – just better!
