PACIFIC RIM is a fantasy action film in which large alien creatures invade Earth and huge robot like fighting machines are piloted to fight them.

Violence

There are a number of battles between aliens and robots which primarily take place at sea. Heavy blows are landed by the robots, with the aliens fighting back using spikes and teeth which pierce the armour and, on occasion, tear off robotic limbs and metal body plates. Humans controlling the robots sustain occasional injuries and we see some blood. It is also implied that some pilots are killed. But neither the injuries nor deaths are shown with any detail. The aliens are also seen rampaging through cities, demolishing buildings, as people flee in terror. In one sequence a woman remembers a childhood experience where she is threatened by an alien and upset as she cowers from it. In another scene two characters fight, with punches and throws, but again no detail of injury.

Language

A single use of strong language ('f**k') is used during the course of one of the battles. Other bad language includes 'bloody', 'shit', 'ass', 'bastard' and 'crap'.
