Re: Idris Elba's Speech In Pacific Rim

^All stories are built around a few recurring patterns, but that doesn't mean they can't build something very original around those frameworks. What's fascinating here is that the copilots are mentally linked -- they have total access to all of each other's thoughts and memories, they have their darkest secrets and most embarrassing private thoughts exposed to each other. I think that could be the basis for a fascinating and very psychologically driven story, if it's done well.

In any case, the point is that I really, really don't think the arc of this movie will build toward a climax where just one character casts off his or her partner and does everything alone.
