Monsters from the sea are opposed by robots so colossal they need pilots in director Guillermo del Toro's ("Pan's Labyrinth") expectedly scenic and loud fantasy.
"Sons of Anarchy" co-star Charlie Hunnam plays one of the pilots, who struggles with personal troubles to rise to the challenge of vanquishing the invading creatures. Idris Elba ("Luther"), Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day also appear. DVD extras: audio commentary by Del Toro; five "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
