Screen Junkies have posted their latest ‘honest trailer’ – a four minute or so piece of film criticism using the ‘In a world…’ voiceover style – and this time they’re pummeling their giant mechanical robot fists into Pacific Rim’s face…
…but not as hard as you might think. While Screen Junkies are usually remorseless in their critiques, they can’t seem to find it in their black, evil hearts to fully condemn Guillermo del Toro’s (“Latino Peter Jackson”) Summer blockbuster.
They do, however, point out…
–Pacific Rim’s borrowing from Tranformers, Godzilla, Power Rangers, every anime ever made…etc.
-the inconsistent ‘neural bridge.’
-Charlie Hunnam’s ‘American’ accent.
-And BIG DUMB ROBOTS HITTING BIG DUMB MONSTERS.
