There are no gay people in this movie and all the boys look exactly the same. Charlie Hunnam is only shirtless for about a minute but, when he is shirtless, it's pretty fantastic - you almost forget how awkward it is when he speaks.
Charlie Day is doing the best Rick Moranis impression since Rick Moranis.
Spoiler alert: Robots (jaegers) fight monsters (kaiju). That's all that happens. It's akin to watching kids play action figures...for two hours. I loved the look of it - Lost in Space! While the production design is absolutely gorgeous throughout, there's not a lot going on beyond robots fighting monsters and monsters fighting robots. While it's very pretty, this movie suffers from the same trappings as Transformers - it's hard to be emotionally invested in giant robots.
Pacific Rim feels like the lackluster sequel to a much better Pacific Rim movie - the movie that's hinted at in its opening prologue. I fell asleep three times.
