Here is what probably no one has told you: this is a gorgeous movie. A whole lot of thought has been put into the design work on the Jaegers: not just the exterior design, but the interior, how all the parts work together, how the pilots function within the Jaeger.
And then the lighting! No movie that involves this much macro-scale combat should have such ridiculously pretty lighting!
If you are a person who thought the best part (perhaps the only watchable part) of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow was the giant robots walking through Manhattan, then this is the movie for you.
