Acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) brings out the big guns in this sci-fi action epic about a ragtag band of humans that band together in the year 2025 to fight legions of monstrous creatures rising from the sea. Using massive piloted robots to combat the alien threat, earth's survivors (including Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, and Rinko Kikuchi) take the fight to the invading alien force lurking in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless enemy, the forces of mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee—who now stand as earth's final hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Really enjoyed this movie. Awsome graphics and great shots of aliens. Excellent example of its genre
A big comedown...
Really really wanted to enjoy this as I have loved all his other films. But I didn’t; it was one big overacted cliche (the only things not overacting were the creatures). It was kind of appalling actually. Guillermo can do much better than this, and to think (I believe) that he walked away from the Hobbit project to direct this clunker...
Within the first 5 minutes of the film I thought "Is there enough beer in the house to 'Dumb-Down' my brain to make this an entertaining experience?" So I persisted because first impressions can be wrong and after being confronted with nonsensical dead-end plots and clunky characters I realised the following: "There was not enough beer in the city to enjoy this film." Let my review act like a beacon in the night to guide you away from the rocks. Stay clear of this wreck.
