It's hard to imagine that moviegoers will get much more for their buck than Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. 'Pacific Rim'. The film is a 14-year old boy's backyard play session brought to life on a grand scale and with high quality special effects. At the same time, 'Pacific Rim' is a story with thinly veiled plot motivations and very one-note characters. However, if you can look past those minor missteps, you'll find one of this year's best action movies.
