Want to quench your thirst for mecha action? Can't find any mainstream Western giant robots to satiate your wants? I was in the same boat, that was, until legendary film writer/director Guillermo del Toro brought us this Japanese inspired mecha bout. It draws inspiration from Godzilla, Gundam, Robotech, Patlabor, and Golderak, and other mecha anime/mangas in Japan.
The movie was incredible, I was absolutely taken by the colors, the cute Japanese girl, and the electrifying atmosphere it had to offer.
It was like racing for the first time.
I hope this paves the way for a sequel, and more Japanese inspired mecha films in the West, heck more Japanese culture. God knows we could use more of that here.
