Viewers thrilled as the ‘greatest movie of all time’ lands on Netflix

Action film fans have rejoiced after it dropped on the streaming platform

If you ask people online what the greatest film of all time is, you are going to get a whole range of responses.

Before the chat would turn to childish name-calling you might get some typical answers, Pulp Fiction, Inception, Shawshank Redemption, the usual, you know.

But some fans have been calling Netflix’s latest addition the 'greatest movie of all time'.

Beyond that, fans have said they can’t wait to get the popcorn, get comfortable and watch the flick all over again because it is simply that much fun.

Check out the trailer:

The film in question is Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim which was first released back in 2013.

If you haven’t heard of it, firstly where have you been? Secondly, all you need to know is it every child’s robot dreams come true. In that you get to watch massive robots beat up terrifying monsters, what more could you ask for, eh?

Throw in some memorable performances from Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam and even Charlie Day and you have got yourself a blockbuster hit.

After Pacific Rim dropped on February 1, fans took to social media to share their delight and rejoiced at Netflix's newest addition.

One user wrote: "The greatest movie of all time (Pacific Rim) is now on Netflix so I’ll be watching that a few times this week."

Another added: "'Today we are cancelling the apocalypse!' Love love love this movie, despite a few criticisms. Apparently some of it was shot on 16mm! It’s one of those movies I can watch again any time and it instantly brightens my mood."

A third commented: "Watched it on Saturday night, haven't seen it in years so it was great to revisit, solid 8/10 movie, perfect weekend popcorn flick."

Someone else penned: "MAAAN Gotta rewatch my childhood classic. Saw this as a kid and my EYES are WIDE OPEN and AMAZED."

“Y'all ready for a binge? Don't snub Pacific Rim 'cause it's mainstream, it's lowkey a futuristic masterpiece! Who needs sleep anyway?” another added.

Pacific Rim has 72 percent critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and an even more impressive 77 percent audience score.

The hit action film did in fact get a sequel in 2018 - called Pacific Rim Uprising - which was instead directed by Steven S. DeKnight and wasn't nearly as well received.

Even though Del Toro is named as an executive producer on the sequel, he revealed he never actually saw it.

“I didn’t see the final movie because that’s like watching home movies from your ex-wife. It is terrible if they’re good and worse if they’re bad, or the opposite. You don’t wanna know,” he told Collider. “So, I didn’t see it. I did read the final script, and it was very different. Some of the elements were the same but very different.”
