While other summer blockbusters released this year have failed to live up to the hype, Guillermo del Toro has delivered with Pacific Rim.
To some extent, most of the summer blockbusters released this year have been disappointing. I was completely entranced by Star Trek Into Darkness, but otherwise Iron Man 3, Fast & Furious 6, After Earth, Man of Steel, World War Z, White House Down and The Lone Ranger have all been letdowns to varying degrees. With the summer movie season now past its midpoint, the pressure is on Guillermo del Toro to deliver where others have faltered. Is Pacific Rim the summer blockbuster we deserve?
