Pacific Rim

Pentecost and Hansen detonate their nuke, killing them and a kaiju near the portal. Mako and Raleigh ride through the portal with a category five kaiju. Raleigh ejects Mako's escape pod and manually activates Gipsy Danger's nuclear core. After he ejects, Gipsy Danger explodes, sealing the portal. Mako swims to Raleigh's escape pod and wakes him up. During the credits, Hannibal Chau slices his way out of the kaiju that ate him and asks where his shoe is.

Factual error: The coastal wall in Sydney is shown as being inside the Sydney Harbour (right next to the Opera House). But Sydney Harbour is not on the Pacific coast but a part of the Parramatta river, several kilometres from the ocean (where the wall should have been). So the wall is either not shielding the northern part of Australia or (more likely) the producers decided that the audience cannot tell that it is Sydney unless we see the Opera House.

Stacker Pentecost: Today at the edge of our hope, at the end of our time. We have chosen to believe in each other. Today we face the monsters that are at our door, today we are cancelling the apocalypse!

Trivia: Crimson Typhoon was originally planned to have four arms and be piloted by female quadruplets. However, the producers couldn't find any.

Question: Is it ever established why the Kaiju attack cities? Why they perceive a challenge, a threat, a resource worth taking there specifically? If they are a decent biochemical match to Earth life, and are hungry, why don't they attack schools of fish, or fishing/whaling vessels, if nothing else, they should attack the cannery row? If they are after a non-living resource, like minerals, why don't they root through the seabed or attack mines?

Chosen answer: Because they are scouts for an invasion of Earth from another dimension. They are testing our response to their arrival and military capabilities and the best way to attract military attention is to attack population centers.
