Pacific Rim Uprising Reviews
December 7, 2020
Filled with more of the same, expected elements, as if biding its time for a single, cataclysmic climax.
July 24, 2020
[H]yperactive and inconsistent even in the quietest of scenes.

Uprising rarely dives below the original plot's surface, failing to rise up above anything more than a movie about robots and monsters.

It has more clarity than the first Pacific Rim and so exposes more dumb things about the entire premise[.]

It's like Del Toro left his toys out for others to play with, but these new filmmakers grabbed the brightest, shiniest ones and left the far more interesting monsters on the ground.

This unnecessary sequel, lacking the original's assets, plays like a vapid Transformers knockoff.
February 15, 2020
Plays out like the wayward cousin of the original, induced on a diet of sugar and lacking the basic skills to pay attention.

Its tone is more of a Transformers film, (loud, crunchy, whip-lash filming, somewhat teen-centered) and wait, let's not forget those continued earsplitting explosions.

Pacific Rim: Uprising is big and dumb, but at least it's having fun.
January 10, 2020
Pacific Rim: Uprising is a fun genre movie that will be enjoyable for anime fans and has the potential to be a really good franchise.

The humor feels forced and thrives on the overwhelming amount of lameness found crammed into a bunch of dad jokes strung together as the film practically jabs you with its metaphorical elbow as it waggles its eyebrows and asks if you get it or not.
August 7, 2019
It's simply an atrocious movie with barely coherent plot lines.
July 25, 2019
It serves to entertain as long as you don't expect another movie in the same level of the first installment. [Full Review in Spanish]

Unfortunately, once the movie is decided to start and provide a fun and complex-free hobby, it is too late. [Full Review in Spanish]

Pacific Rim: Uprising leaves out almost all of what made the first film special.
July 10, 2019
The story hints at the perils of automating war weapons. It also points fingers at the drone situation being dealt with all over the world these days. But it is still shallow enough to not prompt deep thoughts.

At no point, even accidentally, does Uprising almost become original. It also never becomes boring, somehow making the most banal exposition sequences approximate entertainment.
