AllMusic Review by

A movie as big and ridiculous as Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro's epic reimagining of Japanese kaiju films, needs a soundtrack that's just as overblown as the action that's on-screen. Fortunately, the film can look to the talents of composer Ramin Djawadi, whose guitar-driven score mixes just the right amount of classic orchestral scoring, electronic music, and guitar-driven rock to create the perfect backdrop for the near future film about the epic battle between giant monsters from another world and the massive robots humanity constructs to combat them. While the score might feel a bit overdone on its own, it feels right at home with the larger-than-life action taking place on the big screen.
