Rated: PG:13 Runtime: 111 min
Ten years after closing off an alien portal in the middle of the Pacific Ocean the world finds itself under attack yet again by the nefarious Precursors, a species that is trying to colonize the planet. Little do they realize that we not only have giant suits of armor but we have an uncanny resolve to fight against alien invaders. Even our lowest street urchins can fight their monsters to great effect.
Characters are plucked from around the Pacific and put in the cockpits of the giant Yeagers, machines crafted to defend the world from the organic based Kaiju. The acting is pretty good and the effects department did a great job.
Pacific Rim: Uprising, earns three out of five, Scrapper Monkeys. This isn’t a great movie, but it is entertaining and really cool to see on the big screen. Big explosions and big monsters and giant suits of armor mixed in with a few engaging characters make this a film that can be appreciated on the big screen.
