    If Guillermo is better at directing action scenes involving giant robots/creatures than Michael Bay, I might go see this.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    RT normally hates stuff like this, but it's been holding pretty steady at 73-75% since the reviews were released. Sounds like it's a winner, if giant rock'em robots are your cup of tea.

    I've been excited to see it for a while. Like Jen said, this kind of stuff is usually panned by the critics.

    The cast looks good. Big fan of Idris Elba and Charlie Day, and I think the director is pretty solid as well though I can't remember who it is at the moment.

    Saw it last night...oddly the only thing that holds the movie back is that it attempts to have a plot.

    That was enjoyable. Predictable but fun. Elba was solid.

    I'm gonna see at as well. In 3D, at 6:30 PST. Though I think this one was a post-conversion.

    Thought it looked kinda lame til a new trailer a few weeks ago.

    That actually made me want to see it.

    8.1 on IMDB?

    No movie over an 8 is ever bad.

    I suspect I will be seeing this in the not-so-distant future.

    This both made Transformers look like Power Rangers and it was also perhaps what Transformers would've been if Ang Lee directed it.

    Ron Perlman (who is uglier than any alien monster conjured up in the film) was hilarious, and the vfx were absolutely mindblowing; it's gonna be hard for any other movie to top them this year. My biggest complaint: Is it too much to ask to have a major Jaeger-Kaiju brawl in broad daylight? Yeah, the night shots give off pretty colors, but it seems like a wasted opportunity to not let these expensive vfx setpieces (at least 1700 shots) truly shine without any obscurity. AND THE SHAKY CAM NEEDS TO BE BANNED FROM ALL MOVIES!!!!

    Second biggest complaint: It started off a bit too slow.

    Oh, and the 3D was indeed a post job...and it was even better than Life of Pi.

    So Guillermo understands that in a movie that people go to see because they want to see giants fighting, it's important to be able see the giants fighting? Cool.

    Also, is there less dopey twilight for boys wish fulfillment in this? That was the other big problem with Transformers.

    We're going to see this next week while the kids are away. If it's really good we'll see it again with them. I'm super excited about it. I'm a pretty big fan of giant robots that aren't Transformers.
