If you haven't seen it yet, go out and see it right now. If you ahve seen it, go out and see it again. This movie gives you what you want, and what you want is robots fighting Kaiju. The neural link is a contrivance, but it works really well as a plot device in several different ways. A lot of the dialogue is straight out some generic war movie. I kept waiting for the line "I'll be your wingman any day." But, the battles. My god, Del Toro knows how to shoot a giant robot fight where you know what's going on, and you really get a sense of scale and weight to it. Charlie Day steals every scene he is. My one disappointment is not enough GladOS.
