Pacific Rim Uprising Review

Spoilers!!                    

Main Characters: Jake Pentecost was an interesting character. His humor seemed force and his lines were ok. When he was in action his scenes were also mediocre. The Dr. Newton twist was so unnecessary and frankly disturbing to watch. His motivations were unclear and he was very contradictory to how he was in the first film. Amara was also an interesting character and was pretty cliché. Her scenes were also mediocre and her humor was also forced. She was a bore to watch on screen because of her predictability. Her action scenes was also ok. Nate Lambert was a almost ok character. His humor was also sort of forced but he portrayed his character well. He seemed to be a mirror of the other main character in the first Pacific Rim. His action scenes were nothing special. Mako Mori was a welcome addition to this movie as she was just as she was in the last movie. I don’t understand why they killed her off because of her importance. She was a good character too. Hermann was also a good character, also the same as how he was in the last movie. I liked his scenes and lines were ok.

Side Characters: They were a real bore to watch. Half of them died at the end anyway so it felt like a waste. There lines were not too good and action scenes were almost good, until the final act where the action was extremely boring to watch.

 Overall: This could have been a great sequel. The acting was primarily good but the lines were pretty bad sometimes. They should not have forced humor at all in this movie. It seems very unnatural. The action was good and exponentially decreased by the final act in excitement. The plot holes were also noticeable in this movie. Overall I would not watch if you didn’t watch the first one. If you did then you could give it a try. I would give this a 5/10 would not watch again.
