Pacific Rim Uprising in 3D

It’s been 5 years since the 2013 Pacific Rim installment although the movie plays it as if it’s been 10 years.

Jake Pentecost (John Boyega) the son of the legendary Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) who gave his life in the first installment to save humanity from the monstrous “Kaiju” must find a way to move away from the criminal element after abandoning his Jaeger Pilot training.

A worst threat to humanity is about to make it’s self-known and Jake’s skills as well as current Jaeger Pilot Cadets in training must get ready to fight the battle of their lives. The story unfolds from there…

This is a classic case of the second installment is not as good as the first. There is action, special effects and some cool cinematography, but the back story to setup this installment is weak. It appears that the movie just wants to get to the dueling robots instead of providing an appropriate lead-in. The movie running time seemed longer than 111 minutes. John Boyega is the highlight of the movie.

“Pacific Rim Uprising” is a perfect movie for the “Bad Movie Club”. 😊

Wait for it to come out on DVD, Cable or Blue Ray.

This is a 2 Star Movie!
