in a world where huge aliens called Kaiju rose from the sea, the Jaegers were created. the Jaegers required simultaneous control from two pilots whose minds were locked in a bridge. but as the Kaiju became more and more intelligent, pilots were desperate as more teams were killed in battles against the Kaiju. Raleigh was a former pilot that retired after the death of his copilot, also his brother. under desperate circumstances, Raleigh was summoned to pilot their obsolete Jaeger with a new copilot named Mako. however, being new acquaintances and having no knowledge of each of their traumatic pasts, the duo almost destroy their base.
it was actually strange seeing monsters from Ultraman appearing in an English movie. it was even more surprising to find them also looking very rubbery. despite the new ideas of having two pilots for each robot, the film however wasn't as impressive as the Jaegers should have been. the repetitive battles against the Kaiju had ruined the possible climax from having the chance of overwhelming us, and a predictable ending made it worst. it was highly unbelievable that an obsolete model could win against a new model especially against the increasing intelligent Kaiju, not to mention the combination duo of Raleigh and Mako, who never once trained to be partners, could win against the other teams that trained and fought together for 5 years during Raleigh's absence.
