This is pretty much your average mindless action movie with a few pretty cool set pieces. The difference is this movie makes some incredibly stupid decisions that not even the dumbest action films make. What they did with Charlie Day’s character in this movie is beyond laughable. John Boyega and Scott Eastwood are just so incredibly boring and dull as the leads. The one bright side of the movie would have to be Cailee Spaeny who has some star potential.
If you’re into cheesy action rock ’em sock ’em robots movies then this might be for you I guess, but you really should just watch the first one instead or even any of the Transformer movies because they aren’t even close to as ridiculous as Pacific Rim Uprising.
