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.
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]
June 18, 2019
At no point, even accidentally, does Uprising almost become original. It also never becomes boring, somehow making the most banal exposition sequences approximate entertainment.
May 15, 2019
Pacific Rim Uprising isn't as good as the first one, but it's a fun movie that doesn't take itself too seriously with plenty of giant monsters versus giant robot fun.

"Pacific Rim: Uprising challenges the notion of a leading black man who must appear culturally blank in order to seem 'safe' for non-black audiences."
February 7, 2019
While there are some flashy and engaging moments, those are counterbalanced by storytelling that is largely unoriginal and uninspired.

There were many times when the movie felt like it was on the right track, but then all of a sudden gets slightly derailed, and then back on track.
January 8, 2019
John Boyega continues to eke out a 'sardonic and prickly but secretly a perfect squishy marshmallow' leading man spot for himself that the world has been sorely missing.

Brighter, funnier, and more action-oriented than its predecessor, PACIFIC RIM UPRISING is a marked improvement over the first installment.
October 31, 2018
What it lacks in originality it makes up for in charm and fun, so it's ultimately up to you if that's enough.

You didn't think it was going to be as good as the first one, did you?
October 30, 2018
It's a goofy, big B-movie that doesn't always work but when it does it presents plenty of booming action that places an emphasis on fun and isn't the chaotic, noisy mess that you might encounter in a Transformers film.
October 12, 2018
It certainly satisfies on a base level, even though Uprising often feels like a straight-to-VOD fugitive.
September 25, 2018
There are a lot of twists that I didn't see coming and thoroughly enjoyed. For me, the best part was the acting.
August 28, 2018
[It] skews lighter and younger than its parent, but most people who liked the first film will like this one, as will kids who like giant robots, giant monsters and the two kicking the heck out of each other.
August 26, 2018
Pacific Rim: Uprising has memorable characters and a satisfyingly complex story, and for lovers of action, it comes highly recommended.
August 25, 2018
Fixes some shortcomings of the predecessor by providing a charismatic lead, clear and cool action sequences, and well-written character. It is dumb but constantly fun.
August 20, 2018
The film goes HEAVY on the exposition for a while and it's a bit of a slow build to the excitement but it's a fun ride along the way.
