It's bad enough that Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim is this year's Battleship ... and now to be ripping that off? The very determined and unapologetic Atlantic Rim (2013) a.k.a. From The Sea a.k.a. 5,000 Fathoms Deep a.k.a. Attack From Beneath is yet another less-than-glorious product from mockbuster maestros Asylum and this time, they've culled and compiled and enough robot vs alien stock footage to release the suspicious scion before the movie proper even! If you complain that this is a cheap knockoff that rides on the buzz of another movie, then you're clearly missing the point. The plot, you ask? You shouldn't.
At a glance:

Bad news on the doorstep:
|"So guys... what time is lunch around here?"|
Reminds me of:Armageddon (1998), minus Liv Tyler's panties on a golf club. Oh and seeing David Chokachi again reminds me of sneaking up to watch Baywatch on late night TV as a kid.
Watch out for:
|Crash. Bang. Wallop. Zap. Whatever.|
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?Maybe if they had spent a bit more time on it, results would've been better. However I do applaud the business acumen. Folks only have themselves to blame if they paid a penny towards a download or a DVD. It's a shyte economy out there, what can you say.★
