In the near future, giant creatures called the Kaiju (which is the Japanese word for monster) arrive on Earth via portal in the bottom of the Pacific ocean and attack Earth, taking millions of lives. To end this apocalypse, Stacker Pentecost (played by Idris Elba) creates the Jaeger (which is the German word for hunter) Program. Jaegars are huge robots who are piloted by two humans whose minds are connected. One of the Jaegers, Gipsy Danger, is piloted by Raleigh Becket (played by Charlie Hunnam) and his brother, Yancy. One day, Yancy is killed by a Kaiju, and Raleigh retires from being Gipsy Danger’s pilot. 5 years later, Raleigh is rerecruited by Pentecost to pilot Gipsy Danger along with Pentecost’s adopted daughter, Mako Mori, who’s family was killed by a Kaiju when she was a kid. Now it is up to them to defeat the remaining Kaijus and destroy the portal.
I saw this movie recently with my grandfather. We both really enjoyed it. It was funny and had great visual effects. The 3D and acting were also great. Even though Guillermo del Toro’s movies aren’t the best, I have to admit that this one was really good. I would recommend this movie for anyone who loves science fiction movies.
