Movie Review: Pacific Rim-Uprising
In 2035, ten years after the original Pacific Rim movie, a former Jaeger pilot Jake Pentecost – son of Battle of the Breach hero Stacker Pentecost – steals and sells black-market Jaeger parts.
Jake ends up with Amara in her single-pilot Jaeger Scrapper and both get arrested. Their ticket out is to join, and his Jake’s case, rejoin the Jaeger military.
But there hasn’t been an alien attack in decades.
A new scientist has converted technology for the Jaegers to be piloted from remote sites. However, Amara finds out that the new robots have alien technology.
Soon, the new advanced robots take over and try to open the portal to allow the aliens back.
I liked this movie though not as good as the first one. The acting was stilted and there were a few quirky parts. If you like giant robots fighting and smashing buildings, then you might enjoy this movie.
My rating 3.2 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
