Looks like a Power Rangers movie without the campy humor. Pass.

Power Rangers: Humans sit in giant robots and fight giant monsters.
Pacific Rim: Humans sit in giant robots and fight giant monsters.

Why would what are essentially giant humans be the best weapon against monsters?  Without any weapons, humans are lousy fighters and, naturally, would end up as bear poop or tiger poop.  Why not fight the monsters with quadcopter drones armed with missiles, nets, or whatever else it takes to kill these things?

Fantastic! I was chuckling even before I reached the final "punchline" title. Reminds me of Iain M. Banks and his darkly named spaceships.

I saw the movie in IMAX last night and was really thrilled.  It's not Shakespeare but who would even think that?  What the fark are you expecting from this genre?

I expected giant mechs fighting giant monsters.  That's what I got in the best visual presentation of the genre in the history of film making and everyone in the theater farking loved it.  Of course the theater was full of nerds, too.

You have to see the movie to answer some of those obvious questions as to why big robots instead of whatever else, or nukes, etc.  Some of that information is online too.

That's a pretty dumb thing to say considering a guy built a bear-proof suit which is essentially what these mechs are. No one's expecting a human to punch out Cthulhu, they are expecting a 500 foot tall, 2,500 ton behemoth made out of solid steel to be able to do that.

A current drone, such as a Predator armed with Hellfire missiles, would make quick work of that dude.

But the fight scenes would be boring.  And so we get Transformers-like things.

Meh.

Considering that the trailers showed that conventional weaponry didn't seem to work, it's a strange thing for him to have a nitpick on.

but did any of the mechs transform from a fighter to a flyer, or did any of the mechs assemble into a larger mech?

Super-dense due to the giant size. For their bones/muscles to support that much weight, they're denser than anything else around, so conventional stuff doesn't work well (it does, but takes forever to whittle them down). Nukes work, but when the monster is in the middle of a densely populated/built-up area that people might want to return to some day, not the greatest of options.
