They have appeared to get better at their CGI work.  Their effects in the awful "HG Wells' War of the Worlds" was suitably terrible.

With "Pacific Rim" being a summer blockbuster about giant robots fighting giant monsters, I am ashamed that a Asylum knock-off actually surprised me.  I should have known it was coming.

It's ok Andrew.  I think they surprise us all.  The Asylum is like that friend that you have who always says something stupid at the worst possible time.  You are always surprised when he says it, even though you should have been expecting it.

The only thing I want to know about Atlantic Rim is if one of the giant monsters will be...

I can't understand how these DTV rip off films continue to get made. Is there really that much money to be made in these?

The Asylum makes'em quick and they make 'em cheap. They claim that they've never lost money on a film.

Asylum is shameless hustler, but it's not like they don't admit it.
Never lost money? I'd be interested to see the invoices from the effects dept.

The title is also annoying me from a geological perspective.

The name Pacific Rim comes from the deep trench that stretches north-to-south along the Pacific Ocean where old strata is forced down into the mantle. The Atlantic Ocean has a corresponding undersea mountain chain when new crust is pushed up.

If anything, this should be called Atlantic Rise or Atlantic Uplift/Atlantic Rising.

Yeah, I know.

If and when the "Pacific Rim" studio's lawyers get in touch with the Asylum, they may end up having to change the movie's title anyway. That's what happened to their "Battleship" clone ("American Battleship") last year... it suddenly became "American Warship" instead.  TeddyR

Similarly, their "Battle: Los Angeles" wanna be "Battle Of Los Angeles" (note the "Of," people - totally different movie!) is also known as "Attack Los Angeles."

I think they already have that covered.

IMDB has it listed as "From the Sea"

I think those actually could be good names for a movie.

It's a pity they don't use the funds and talent to create films with some originality.

Who needs originality when you have raised rip-off to an art form?

It's not as though even the big Hollywood studios have any to spare. I suppose it's crazy to expect it from creators of rubbish.

All I know is, it's probably not a good idea to grab a snake by the middle! Smile
