The guys at How It Should Have Ended love to make animated comedy shorts poking fun at Hollywood blockbusters. It was really only a matter of time before they got around to riffing on Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim – after all, a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters seems pretty rife for riffing. And while I really like Pacific Rim, I think this video is still amusing.
In it, Raleigh and Mako find a better way to deal with the monster menace emanating from the ocean floor, and they get some assistance from some other famous robots.
Whomever they got to do Charlie Hunnam’s voice is great – particularly in the dramatic opening lede sequence – and the rest of the video inspires laughs even if a few of the gags seem obvious.
Check out Pacific Rim: How it Should Have Ended below and let us know what you think. Did GdT’s ending get it right?
