I am making this to see what others thoughts were on it. I myself enjoyed the Cinematic Fights Scenes however felt robbed over all in action that the Trailers made this movie out to be.
My biggest Gripe is the fact that the Cherno Alpha and Crimson Typhoon were unimpressive and easily killed in a 2 on 2 fight with the Monsters. What a Jip! I expected these robots to be able take on 3 or 4 monsters at a time. Yet these 2 Robots could not even come close to winning 1 on 1!
Then it seem the only bot worth its rock em sock em tin butt was Gipsy and Striker. However, Striker had one half butt fight and was shut down by a EMP easily enough. What the hell!? It all came down to Gipsy saving everyone and being the only CAPABLE Jaeger.
Also taking with me my die hard Godzilla fan 6 year old son made his own rating a meh. He enjoyed the staff fight over the robot monster action the most., The mass amount of talking and very lame comedy act of the bumbling doctors was time wasted. they could edited so much of that filler crap out and probably gave more face time to the Jaeger Pilots and more battle scenes. I know he was bored half the time.
Overall, I was disappointed in the lack of action. Which seems crucial for a movie based on Giant Robots and Giant Monsters. People are not bringing their kids there for a half butt love story of a poorly acting chick and a hard bitten veteran. When you watch the trailers, you want the had core and dragged out action it seem to promise. I was very disappointed with the major filler in it. I was disappointing with the Giant Robots being overall unimpressive. I find the Mech action in Gundam 08th MS Team more hard gripping than what I saw.
Also why is it all these Jaergers built for Hand to Hand combat, which they suck at btw, and none of them had like a Machine Gun with 108 MM anti tank rounds? When in hell was that consider tacticle to punch the Close Combat Monster?!
Anyway, my gripes and want to know what worked for you and what didnt. Was it overall awsome? Or a let down?
