Pacific (G)Rim

Just watched what should have been a great film. Pacific Rim, directed by Guillermo del Toro and featuring Idris Elba.

What a waste, pseudo-dinosaurs boxing with gigantic humanoid robots. In an age of nuclear weapons, they prefer the left hook?! Cue macho male leads and a solo, subordinate, woman. Life’s too short. Very disappointing. Going back to Pan’s Labyrinth :)
