Kojima Thoroughly Endorses Pacific Rim

I've always had a fondness for mecha and monsters, Godzilla reigned surpreme in my earliest years but that love of Japanese cinema and oversized action quickly took me to Gundam. Obviously when Necrowolf sent me the trailer for Pacific Rim I was in love.
Still, I'm wary. I don't expect it to be the most amazing film I've ever seen, but I do hope that the robot-versus-monster action delivers on all cylinders. Thankfully, it's got the endorsement of one Hideo Kojima, master of all things Metal Gear at Kojima Productions. The famed developer sent out these tweets today:
I have never imagined that I would be fortunate enough to see a film like this in my life.
The emotional rush I had inside me was the same kind I had when I felt the outer space via "2001: A Space Odyssey" and....
and when I had touched the dinosaur in "Jurassic Park". Animation and special effects movies and shows that I loved in my childhood days -
they all truly exist in the screen. Director Guillermo del Toro offers this spectacular vision of massive kaijus and robots in PACIFIC RIM.
This film is not simply a film to be respected, but most importantly, it let us dream the future of entertainment movies.
Pacific Rim is the ultimate otaku film that all of us had always been waiting for. Who are you, if you are Japanese and won't watch this?
I hope you would accept this inspirational love letter that had traveled across the Pacific, written by Director Guillermo del Toro.
