It’s hard to review a movie that is just merely as okay as this one is. Pacific Rim: Uprising follows the son of Stacker Pentacost, Jake, who is played by John Boyege. Jake was once a promising Jaeger pilot, but left the program to pursue a life of partying. The war against Kaiju is deemed to be over, but someone out there is controlling evil Jaegers remotely trying to take out pilots. That is until the kaiju come back with a plan to take out the world entirely!.. To be honest I don’t even know HOW I would make this movie sound interesting. The plot of the movie is very clearly the first thing someone thought to do to make a sequel, with literally no creativity added in. None of the actors we loved from the first are back, except maybe for Charlie Day, but he is given such a shitty role to play in this that it makes the movie worse because of it. I was very disappointing, the first one was exactly what I wanted out of a monster vs. robot movie and this one doesn’t capitalize on my excitement at all, it just kind of coasts by.
