* ClicheStorm: Part of the above, almost ''anyone'' who has seen a Kaiju movie (or a SuperRobot anime) can see everything coming from a mile away. Therein lies most of the BrokenBase: either this works because it's an homage to said material, or doesn't because it's utterly generic.
** You don't have to be a fan of Japanese media to see the movie's progression. If you've ever seen a Hollywood blockbuster then its unlikely that anything in the movie will surprise you.

** Sadly, some ([[FriendlyFandoms but not all]]) fans of either ''Pacific Rim'' or ''Film/{{Godzilla| 2014}}'' would rather antagonize each other over the very different takes and tones on the giant monster movie. This rivalry turned sour given how ''Film/{{Godzilla| 2014}}'' proved to be more financially successful and will be getting its own cinematic universe while the sequel to ''Pacific Rim'' has been delayed.

* WhatAnIdiot: Having Striker Eureka stay back when Crimson Typhoon and Cherno Alpha engage Otachi and Leatherback. If those Kaiju wind up being strong enough to take out two Jaegers [[spoiler: (and they are)]], then Striker's odds in a 1 on 2 fight would be lousy at best.

* AmericansHateTingle: With the domestic NA box office not being especially high, the studio was counting on overseas markets to make the profit. While the movie was highly successful in China and the UK, it underperformed in Europe and Japan. Most European moviegoers didn't care about Japanese cinema and Hollywood blockbusters, while the film in Japan had the misfortune of releasing during one of the most popular conventions in Japan, as well as both movies in Japan being somewhat niche (TV serials are more popular, due to how expensive movie tickets are) and a tepid reaction to Rinko Kunichi.

** Calling Marshal Pentecost's adopted daughter a bitch in front of her co-pilot that's been working heavy construction for five years and one of two people strong enough to single-handedly pilot a Jaeger is not the brightest idea.

** The ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' fandom is also friendly with this fandom, mostly for the whole "Jaeger" connection. Plus, it also allowed this [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome amazing]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tj-edq36_gk video]] to be created.

** ''[[RuleOfThree Alternatively]]'', this movie can also be the best screen-adaptation of ''VisualNovel/MuvLuvAlternative''we can ever get, due to the many similarities (especially the nature and origins of the Kaiju).

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The thoughts and motives of the kaiju are open to endless speculation. Are the kaiju knowingly malevolent, sadistic beings that enjoy slaughtering humans? Are they animalistic, merely acting on instinct without understanding the suffering they cause? Are they tragic victims of the precursors, tortured and brainwashed into fighting to the death against their will? And how does the kaiju hivemind work? Do kaiju share experiences and memories while retaining individual personalities, or is the hivemind a wholly undifferentiated consciousness for whom kaiju bodies are interchangeable vehicles?

** Never, under any circumstances, say this movie is a rip off of Michael Bay's Transformers.
