I heard a lot of good things about Pacific Rim before I saw it. Honestly, I was expecting more. The effects were good, and most of the acting was strong. It's overall a pretty good movie. There is A LOT of violence. Giant robots fight giant monsters in pretty brutal ways (i.e. punches to the face). Characters are seen fighting, flipping each other over, and trash talking. One character is sick, and has constant nose-bleeds (which are painful to watch). In one battle, a monster's tongue is ripped out in a brutal way. A monster is suspected to be dead, but it turns out to be pregnant. The baby then jumps out, but before he can do anything harmful, he is strangled by the umbilical cord, which has wound around his neck. BUT, he jumps up AGAIN, and eats a secondary character. There is also some swearing. "s--t", "bitch", "bastard", "goddamn", "piss", "a--", "damn", and "hell" are all said at least once. There is some romance.
