If you watch free movies online especially sci-fi action movies, you’ll see the storyline here isn’t really new. Monsters known as the Kaiju have emerged from the depths of the Pacific and threaten mankind. Mankind comes together and they develop the Jaegers, giant robots controlled by humans and tasked to fight these monsters. The story is told from the viewpoint of an ex-jaeger pilot, who turns out to be humanity’s last chance.
While the story isn’t original, the stunning CGI effects will blow you away, and the battle scenes between the giant robots and monsters are stunning. More than the plot, it’s the special effects that will keep you glued to this one.
