or better yet, it was all a big misunderstanding. the gaiju only wanted peace love and understanding, but failed to predict that other intelligent life could be so tiny in scale and mistakenly killed a bunch of people, thinking that they were an infestation of destructive insects. before they could figure out their own error, the jaeger were built and sent after them. the gaiju made many attempts to befriend the jaeger, whom they believed to be earth's dominant species. however all attempts were met with violence and they were forced to defend themselves.
Your Lord knows very well what is in your heart. Your soul suffices this day as a reckoner against you. I need no witnesses. You do not listen to your soul, but listen instead to your anger and your rage.

I've been following Steven DeKnight on Twitter because I love his work on Spartacus and DD and I'm rooting for him on Pacific Rim. One thing I liked is that he said he could never hope to do what Del Toro did in terms of atmosphere (he specifically mentioned the fight in the rain) so he went in another direction. He grew up loving monster and giant robot movies so he wanted to show that love in PR.
One thing I know is that if the movie isn't a huge success it won't be because he didn't try or work his butt off.
So this movie is a noticeable step down from the first film. Boyega's performance saves the film from being completely boring though as[SPOILER - highlight to read]: the kaju fights don't happen until 2/3 of the way through the film.
