* EndingFatigue: Some have said that the entire Hong Kong fight was so intense and amazing that the climax was unable to top it, feeling like it was just resolving the plot rather than being its own well-developed sequence.

** Herc Hansen and Pentecost are popular with those who like their eye candy a little older and more rugged.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The movie can described as 2500 tons of awesome. As for the game based on the movie, opinions might be mixed, especially considering the name it has to live up to.

** Fans have debated whether the Pacific Rim universe have a crossover with the Film/MonsterVerse (Legendary's shared universe centered around Godzilla and King Kong). Those in favor of it claim that the crossover would draw more fans and attention to the Pacific Rim brand and if anything else would be [[RuleOfCool really]], [[CoolVsAwesome really]] [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny cool]]. Those against it are worried that a crossover could lead to the [=Monster Verse=]'s characters and Kaiju overshadowing those of Pacific Rim and that the two franchises are stylistically incompatible with each other.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Charlie Hunnam's American accent wavers in the very first line of the film and doesn't get much better from there.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Newer viewers may wonder what all the fuss was about when it comes to Mako. Take a look at when the film was released - 2013, when there were no notable female action heroes in Hollywood. The Marvel Cinematic Universe had been around long enough for fans to notice that Black Widow didn't have her own movie. ''Film/TheHungerGames'' had only just come out and people could be forgiven for thinking it breaking out of the GirlShowGhetto was just a fluke. In the years since then ''The Hunger Games'' became a massive franchise, ''{{Literature/Divergent}}'' followed suit (also featuring many {{Action Girl}}s in the cast), ''Series/AgentCarter'', ''{{Series/Supergirl 2015}}'' and ''Series/JessicaJones'' were hits on TV, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' made its protagonist a woman, ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad was a feminist sensation, and of course ''Film/WonderWoman'' was finally released. So it might be lost on some that Mako was seen as a huge step in the right direction at the time, even though today it's more noticeable that she's still [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only woman to have a major role]] and her arc is still [[NeverASelfMadeWoman somewhat related to the men around her]].

*** Another hilarious outtake from the Mexican Spanish dub: Raleigh and Newt's voice actors (Creator/IrwinDaayan and Victor Ugarte, respectively) voiced [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Kensuke Aida and Shinji Ikari respectively]], Kensuke being the nerdy fan of the protagonist [[{{Mecha}} robots]] and Shinji the one who pilots them. In this film, Kensuke is the one who pilots them this time, while Shinji is now the nerdy fan.

** 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 ''Godzilla'' proved to be more financially successful and will be getting its own cinematic universe while the sequel to ''Pacific Rim'' was repeatedly delayed.
