When giant aliens rise up from within the earth, mankind’s only hope is to create a legion of mechanical warriors to battle the menace. Each of our robotic fighters requires two human pilots, mind-melded into a synchronized unit.
If all this sounds like an episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers or a live-action version of Voltron, (and more importantly, if that Voltron reference sounds like fun), then prepare for the ride of your geek life and give thanks to Guillermo del Toro, beloved hero of mythic visionary sci-fi/fantasy dream-works like Blade 2, the Hellboy franchise and Pan’s Labyrinth. Now in theaters. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review.
