In the movie, “Pacific Rim”, there is a sneaking feeling that we are looking at an almost prophetic movie where robots will one day be built to fight our battles and take our hits. Of course, most of them will be remote controlled.
In the USA today, this article covers some detail about the movie…
Del Toro’s 1993 film Cronos dealt with the downside of eternal life. Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) centered on a young girl escaping the horrors of World War II to find different ones in a fantasy realm. His Hellboy movies cast Perlman as a half-demon superhero looking anything but human, yet underneath he was as relatable as they come — albeit with a giant stone hand.
And so it goes with Pacific Rim: Years of robotic Jaegers fighting off Kaiju (giant monsters) from an underwater interdimensional rift have created the need for a world army. Leading the charge are Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam), who looks to redeem his life and avenge his fallen brother; and co-pilot Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), who aims to not be the young girl she once was cowering in fear from mankind’s worst enemies.

Remote control toys, gadgets and more are evolving at breakneck speed. With the unmanned drones already in full use, there are also rc planes being used for property sightings in real estate markets in some European Countries.
Multiple uses of Remote control devices are causing the mainstream population to realize that the rc world is no longer confined to kids or hobbyists.
Back to the movie. My son and I watched Pacific Rim and it was truly phenomenal. I like the addition of the sword to the robot’s armoury.
