Re: Idris Elba's Speech In Pacific Rim

There's a comic that setups some of the backstory. They need two pilots because a single person cannot handle the mechs. They work sort of like those robotic arms that are connected to brains that are being tested now. There is some feedback to the brain and the first test killed the pilot. When two pilots are connected to the mech, they are also connected and can experience each others thoughts and memories to some degree. Because of that, pilots are usually friends or related. Since you would already know that person to some degree, the experience isn't a complete shock.
