The Pacific Rim official plot synopsis:

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Monsters coming out of the ocean. Battleship anyone?

Pacific Rim also stars Ron Perlman, Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Max Martini, Robert Maillet, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Heather Doerksen, Larry Joe Campbell, Jake Goodman, Diego Klattenhoff, Brad William Henke, and Robert Kazinsky.

  • It could be Battleship or it could be Mechwarrior. We’ll see. That costume is pretty righteous.

  • There is a great anime that sounds just like this except that the robots use so much energy they are connected to a power source via a cable.

  • Mechwarrior would be my wish.
