Elliott Serrano, for Redeye
December 12, 2012
I grew up watching Godzilla movies and episodes of Johnny Sokko and his Giant Robot on television. Seeing monsters destroy cities while the armies of the world tried to fight them off were a regular part of my Saturday afternoons. I especially enjoyed the adventures of Spectreman and Ultraman, Japanese superheroes who would defend Tokyo against the "Kaiju."
So you can imagine the thrill I experience when i see this trailer for "Pacific Rim," Guillermo Del Toro's (Pan's Labrynth, Hellboy) take on monster-fighting robots created for American audiences!
After seeing what he did with Hellboy, I'm really psyched for this!
What do you think?
