My first thought on seeing it was that while it was predictable (every character was a cliche with an obvious through line) and stupid, two things it wasn't were boring or insulting.

The opening monologue/info dump basically laid out "Giants monsters attacked and the best defense was giant robots," essentially answering every "hey isn't this kinda stupid question" with "Yes, but, Giant Robots." The film never asked you to believe a stupid thing that didn't stem from "yes, but Giant Robots." It didn't insult you by adding stupid thing that weren't in alignment with that initial premise. if you were on board with that you were on board with the whole movie.

This is just an extension of your original points - you are totally correct that the enthusiasm of the creators made a huge difference.
