Plot: 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.

Movie information in first post provided by The Movie Database
This was an interesting movie. It's sort of a Mech Warriors meets Monsters movie.

Unforunately, the back story that does exist is hard to follow. And much of the movie is set at night. I'm not sure if this is intentional to hide the lower detail quality animation sequences or to set a foreboding tone to the move. With today's technology, animation could have been better. It's almost like watching an old Godzilla movie.
