‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Bullet Point Review

Using bullet points, I’m going to give you my thoughts on a sequel that the world would have been OK without…‘Pacific Rim Uprising’!


  • If you like to see monsters and robots unnecessarily run into and destroy buildings, this is the movie for you
    • There is one scene where a Jaeger grabs and pulls down a bunch of buildings to hit a Kaiju with
      • I know the people who built those buildings had to have been heated
  • The whole drift capability ordeal didn’t seem to matter that much this time around even though the brought it up here and there
  • How were the kids/cadets the last option for the big battle to pilot the Jaegers and how were they ready to?
  • They Jaegers in this sequel were weak and kept getting beat up compared to its predecessor
  • There was plenty of action which this movie needed
  • John Boyega showed potential as a good action star lead but his accent stopped some of the jokes from landing…no offense
  • What’s with these destructive big robot movies? They can’t wait to end and get the title card up then the credits once the bad guy is defeated
  • To Sum it Up: The action keeps this movie, with a blah plot, from being a waste of time

RATING: Might Stream


P.S. I have returned to my rating scale that I used to use but with a slight update. There are four different levels. Below is each level in order from best to worse and what each one means.

Must Own = A movie that is so good that I must add it to my Blu-ray collection when it comes out.

Would Accept as a Gift = I enjoyed the movie but don’t necessarily have to buy it (especially if I don’t have the funds to) myself but I would take it if someone bought it for me.

Might Stream = A movie that if I have the urge to watch again then I’ll just stream it from somewhere

Never See Again = Very simple. I don’t want to ever see this movie again.
