Pacific Rim Uprising

So I’m going to keep this short because this might have been the worst movie I’ve seen so far this year, and me typing away, and trashing it is just kind of pointless.  I’m not a huge fan of the original Pacific Rim, and I certainly don’t think that it warranted a sequel, but here we are.  One of the best parts of the original was Idris Elba’s character, so wisely this movie follows his son played by John Boyega.  The movie is however not smart enough to build any kind of momentum off of this, and only mentions it in passing.


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.
