Synopsis

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

Rebellious Jake Pentecost (John Boyega) is a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.”  Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld.  But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war.  As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left.  Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

  • 3 stars "Ok, I give it 5 stars because I am a fan of the Japanese big robot style. This is a fantastic follow up to the first movies. CGI was acceptable. This is a great rid but you really need to see the first one. It does not stand alone very well by itself. So make it a double feature and you and your friend will have a good time. Truly I feel this fall in the 3 stars because, well it's a big giant robot movie. The story is predictable and the acting is average. Not a must see but if you want a fun nite with friends, this might get the job done as a doubleheader."
  • 5 stars "Sequel of the year! Really outstanding."
  • 2 stars "Seemed like they were shooting for a younger audiance on this one. I mean, giant robots and monsters, you cant go in expecting any different, but I enjoyed the first one alot more."
