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.

Not exactly my bag but it might be yours.

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.

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

A Jaeger bomb, but no worse than its humdrum predecessor.

Pacific Rim: Uprising leaves out almost all of what made the first film special.

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.

The kaiju battles themselves lack Del Toro's colorful pop panache, but the film mostly suffers from plot holes big enough to drive a jaeger through.

It was a phenomenal feat that they managed to make every single character irritating.
April 26, 2019
Doesn't have that something special that the first movie had.
April 4, 2019
[DeKnight] drops the reins in favor of CGI gone amok, minimalizes the humor, and bloats the melodrama.

Pacific Rim Uprising loses the soul that made its predecessor special.

Más Transformers que Titanes del Pacífico.

A lackluster follow-up that offers a lot of special effects but little character development.
November 14, 2018
Del Toro was right to get away from this franchise when he did. Uprising lacks almost all of the fun and charm that made its predecessor a fan-favorite.
November 14, 2018
It's unfortunately a slight step backward for the series instead of building on the success and fun of the original in a significant way.
October 30, 2018
Even by the standards of escapist cinema, it's tedious, flat, and relentlessly dumb. Maybe next time, we should just let the kaiju win.
October 30, 2018
The CGI clashes have just become mind-numbing, no matter how much Uprising tries to remain light. The stakes never really feel as high as they should, so the last act lacks the drama needed to make the material work.
October 11, 2018
Big, dumb, loud, and pointless, it was clearly made solely because it's a preexisting property.
