The Post-Gazette reviews movies from a family perspective:

'Pacific Rim'

Rated: PG-13.

Suitable for: Children 10 or 11 years old and older.

What you should know: This is a noisy, action-packed sci-fi film in which enormous monsters battle giant robots controlled by a pair of pilots working inside the metallic behemoths.

Language: A handful of uses of profanity plus a dozen or so milder words.

Sexual situations and nudity: Almost none. A man is shown shirtless.

Violence/scary situations: Pretty much from beginning to end, with frightening, enormous monsters that rise from the sea, wipe out entire cities and jeopardize the future of mankind. The movie is punctuated by loud, protracted confrontations between bots and beasts, leaving paths of destruction in their wake. Characters are killed or sacrifice themselves, and one is grabbed and swallowed by a monster. A flashback shows a little girl crying and quaking in terror after a beast killed her parents. Also an old-fashioned fistfight and some scary scientific experiments and explosions.

Drug and alcohol use: Nothing notable.
