Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim has screened for certain audiences and the early buzz is strong. Usually this is always the case, because they handpick (most of the time) the people that get to see films like this early, but it’s always reassuring reading the first quick reviews.
Director Rian Johnson (Looper) had this to say about the film:
And there’s also this questionable IMDB user review, that some believe to be a studio plant:
I just got back from the screening (though I’m not this guy’s friend, haha), and I freaking loved it. That’s all I can really say, but the FX are flat out incredible (the ones that were done) and the story is solid. I didn’t know Charlie Day was in it, and being a big fan of It’s Always Sunny, that was a pleasant surprise (he fits his role perfectly).
Overall, it’s probably the best summer monster movie I’ve seen, and out of summer movies in general, falls behind the new Batman series, but that’s about it. I wrote on their response form that they should be proud of the movie and that I’m glad it’s not another Transformers clone (re: Battleship). They killed it!
I’m not too worried. It’s nice to read positive things about a film I’m excited for, but this always happens. Negative word will slowly trickle out too; it’s just a matter of time. I’ll remain as optimistic as possible until July comes.
