I've wanted to see this movie since I first started seeing trailers and previews. The idea of giant robots fighting giant monsters has been done before but not under the careful watch of Guillermo del Toro. I was so excited to see this movie that the thought crept into my mind that perhaps I would be let down like most movies that I get this excited to see.

Well, friends. I can say that in no way, shape, or form was I disappointed. Sure, there are parts in the movie that don't make sense scientifically or the fact that it was painfully obvious that the two main actors were hiding accents but OH MY GOD. They were so easily forgotten.

I had to literally unclench my hand from my girlfriend's leg at the end. I've never been physically exhausted after watching a movie before.

If you have the opportunity to see this movie and you are a science fiction fan then fucking see this movie!

That is all.
