I missed Pacific Rim when it was in the cinemas. I had initially been drawn to it, given that it was a Guillermo del Toro project — and let’s be honest, that man is a genius. Hell Boy is the benchmark for comic adaptations, and Pan’s Labyrinth still gives me chills.
But for whatever reason I never actually made it to the cinema. It happens occasionally. But now, thanks to the magic of home DVD, I have rectified that oversight. Late to the party, yes, but don’t worry: I brought pithy comments!
