I don’t know if this movie needs a review in first place. Still I wouldn’t want others to experience the same that I had.
This movie is nothing new from previous science fictions. It is all about America winning the war against monsters from other planets trying to destroy Earth. Obviously America cannot let down fellow Earthlings. So they fight and win the war.
They have gigantic machines created to fight monsters, there is gender equality, no racism, emotions, love, hatred, anger, loss of near and dear, determination, second life.
To make it interesting, the movie is set in 2020 and uses technology shown in Minorty report. Touch screen, human actions get replicated to make actions of gigantic machine. To balance this gigantic machine two people are required. Nuclear power is required to destroy.
Since it is about science, neural bridge is introduced. Since there two people controlling the gigantic machine from inside the body, these two people should be connected by all means and that technology is neural bridge. By this technology two minds can be connected and they will be able to work together since both their pasts is connected. Nothing can be hidden between the two, no dark secrets. Am afraid of this technology though. I wouldn’t want to connect with some unkown guy/girl and reveal all my dark secrets. Fuck in modern countries how will two people work together when they get to know that one of them is sleeping with another’s girlfriend or boyfriend.
Who is/are villian’s in this movie? Kaiju, they are to go back in past are related to dinosaur. Wow, there you go! These kaiju’s are but now located in different planet and they want to eat away all the planets in the universe to show their dominance. Well after taking over each planet who is left to showcase their dominance? Lets not get into logic now.
Who else can be targeted except we meek humans. The initial thrust was to take assessment of the situation. Humans as usual don’t expect much strength from Kaiju so they use Jaeger’s (gigantic machines) and solid walls. Kaiju’s are no fools they breach the walls easily and even destroy couple of Jaegers leading the entire project itself to a closure. Whats alternative to Jaegers, oh well that would be decided after 8months which is the time given.
Now the kaiju’s are controlled by one big fella sitting somewhere in another planet X! Firstly, how did Kaiju’s land in planet Earth? No questions, watch the movie. How do you get know about this, we have a bold scientist/researcher who connects to kaiju brain through neural link. Why did he do so? To prove his scientific abilities and his research result.This scientist needs more brains to get more deeper and be more effective. Where do you get this, of course where else Chinese black market!
Oh yes, by now the movie has also shifted to Hong Kong where there is expected one last major fight.
Of course humans win! All is well that did not begin well though. Do watch at your own discretion.
My rating 1.5/5. Just so because they made a movie.
