Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro's 190-million-dollar love letter to Kaiju (monster battle epics), may appear to the unobservant to have come out of left field, but anyone paying attention knows that cheesy Japanese robot-sploitation raised multiple generations of kids in the US–from Saturday morning staple Ultraman to the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, and all the spinoffs in between.
