Pacific Rim Vs. Transformers - Which Is Better?

Who would win in a fight?


As technology progresses and we stumble ever onwards into the future, films have aptly reflected our experience of what could be just around the corner for humankind. Science fiction is a haven of artificial intelligence, aliens, and of course, robots, with everything from Wall-E to the Terminator depicting scenarios for our favourite metal companions.

With that in mind then, it's only right that we face off the biggest and baddest of those creations against each other to find out who would REALLY win in a fight. It's time to ask the question: which is better out of a world of giant alien robots versus other giant alien robots, and a world of giant robots versus giant aliens. Wait, what?

Of course, I’m talking about Transformers and Pacific Rim, the only films that matter when it comes to huge metallic smackdowns in the name of saving earth. Whilst it may seem pretty obvious from the outset who would squash the other like a car compactor into a tiny metal cube of shame, we’re going to take a look at it all the same.

Buckle up, shut up, and sit yourself down for some serious debate over which giant robot is best suited to planet-protecting glory. Earth is only big enough for one race of machine behemoths, after all.
