On the latest episode of Reel Shorts, the planet is under attack by the descendants of the dinosaurs, who have come from beneath the sea. Mankind unites to stop the alien invaders by creating colossal robots to stem their attack in the quintessential summer movie, Pacific Rim.
The film is set in the 2020s, when Earth is under attack by Kaijus, colossal monsters which have emerged from a portal on the ocean floor of the Pacific. To combat the monsters, humanity unites to create the Jaegers: gigantic humanoid mecha, each controlled by two pilots whose minds are joined by a neural bridge. Focusing on the war’s later days, the story follows Raleigh Becket, a washed-up Jaeger pilot called out of retirement and teamed with rookie pilot Mako Mori in a last-ditch effort to defeat the Kaijus.
Pacific Rim is co-written and directed by Guillermo del Toro and stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman.
