Pacific Rim

Movie • 2013 • Action  

Report
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed-up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
This movie contains 50 potentially triggering events.

Yancy is torn out of Gipsey Danger's head by Knifehead. We see Knifehead's claws penetrate through, probably crushing Yancy after he is torn out of the Jaeger.

Otachi rips off Crimson Typhoon's head with its tail, which has sharp, claw like edges that penetrate the head, killing the triplet pilots.

While drowning underwater, the pilots of Cherno Alpha are also crushed by Leatherback, causing an explosion.

Not of any actual human body, but in the beginning of the movie a Jaeger has its arm ripped off and one of the pilots feels it as if it were his own arm. He mentions offhandedly at one point years later that his arm still hurts.

Raleigh passes out after Gipsey Danger crashes onto the beach after its fight with Knifehead.

Newt slightly passes out after necrologically drifting with a kaiju brain.

Raleigh passes out in his pod after setting the self destruction sequence to blow up the kaiju's dimension. He wakes up after his pod surfaces and Mako hugs him.

At the very beginning its shown that the drift causes blood vessels to burst in the eye. Later, an inexperienced character drifts for the first time and their eye is quite bloodshot. A kaiju has its eye blown out, this is shown at a distance but you can see it. Ron Pearlman's character has a dead eye, he only shows it once, wearing sunglasses for most of his scenes

There is an extremely brief allusion to suicide in the beginning of the film during the main character's narration. It's a group of people holding hands on top of a building/wall before cutting to the next scene. Only a few seconds and easy to miss but the implication I understood was that they jumped.

Newt mouths and immitates Hermann behind his back as he is sharing his research with Stacker and Herc.

Chuck tells Raleigh that he will drop him like "a ton of kaiju shit."

One of Hannibal Chau's men tells Newt that he uses kaiju bone powder for sexual enhancement.

Hannibal Chau talks about how "kaiju crap" is able to fertilize an entire field.

Other mild swear words are spoken throughout.

Stacker Pentecost has constant nosebleeds that turn out to be from him solo piloting a Jaeger, which would normally kill someone. It's never specified what the illness is, but it is chronic. He's later told that if he steps into a Jaeger again, he will die. He does so on the final mission and sacrifices himself along with Chuck Hansen.

yes, twice. the first is underwater and kills 2 people and a monster, the second kills several aliens (there's also a mention in the beginning of a nuke being used to kill a monster, but it's not shown on screen)

Kaiju are killed graphically on scene, including being shot, punched, and cut. Two characters have burns from drifting but they are only shown healed. There are some minor injuries, like cuts, shown.

Not actual guns, but Jaegers use plasma cannons and missiles to kill Kaiju.
