Pacific Rim Uprising Reviews

Like most unintended second installments, this one is superfluous - a remix of moments, scenes, and images from its predecessor infused with the need to make everything bigger and louder.

Like leftovers in the fridge or reuniting with a lost love, "Pacific Rim: Uprising" is proof things are never as good the second time around.
March 23, 2018
It's still basically The Attack of the Killer Calamari, but without the panache, humour or the lightness of touch that Del Toro brought to it.

If you want to see a noisy, brainless, plotless, spectacle that climaxes with an occasionally rousing downtown donnybrook between three Kaiju and four Jaegers, then come to this. If you don't, don't. It's better than the first film.

It knows its mission parameters, and it ticks them off with alacrity.

This is Transformers-level inanity. It will not make you feel like a 10-year-old, but it will make you feel 10 years older by the time you leave the theater.

Putting DeKnight at the helm hasn't degraded the enterprise; if anything, it has put the enterprise, glorified demolition derby that it is, into proper perspective.

It's 10 years later and another rock 'em sock 'em battle between the Jaegers and the Kaiju is in the offing.
March 22, 2018
It's all so much like watching Saturday morning cartoons, and every bit as not riveting.
March 22, 2018
To its credit, Pacific Rim Uprising doesn't suffer from any pretentions about what it is, which proves kind of refreshing.

Do you like watching giant robots fight monsters, often with little to no regard for how much destruction ends up in their wake? Great news: There's something in Pacific Rim Uprising for you.
March 22, 2018
Even with that childish joy in mind, Pacific Rim Uprising doesn't do anything to really justify its existence.
March 22, 2018
Tickets to "Pacific Rim Uprising" should come with a package of aspirin.

Guillermo Del Toro's 2013 original (well, first, anyway) Pacific Rim was a genre love letter. The sequel is an exemplar, a big-budget actioner that goes about its bang-up business with skill and speed.
March 22, 2018
Lacks the poetry of its predecessor, but a solid 111 minutes of giant robots punching each other.
March 22, 2018
The fate of the world has rarely been decided in as rote a manner as it is here.
March 22, 2018
A movie that plays like a lost "Transformers" entry.
March 22, 2018
Big, dumb and very loud action movies aren't just for the Transformers franchise anymore.
March 21, 2018
"Pacific Rim Uprising" is a lot like the city-crunching monsters it stars: big, loud and as dull-witted as Homer Simpson roused from a medically induced coma.
March 21, 2018
"Uprising" is loud, packed with impressive effects and propulsive - or as propulsive as a car with no brakes going downhill - but it lacks the heart of del Toro's original.
