PACIFIC RIM UPRISING:
The sequel to the 2013 sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim introduces a new generation of Jaeger pilots. Gone are Idris Elba and Charlie Hunnam, enter John Boyega and Scott Eastwood. Uprising maintains the same spirit and flare of the original. It’s still has cool visuals and explosive action. Giant robot machines (not Transformers, but similar) and out of this world villains.
I liked the additions of young blood with Boyega and Eastwood. The franchise seems to be more youthfully suited. Not that Elba and Hunnam aren’t quality actors, but it’s better to have younger actors attached that have a better chance of staying on long-term.
If you’re in the mood for big monsters, lots of destruction, large-scale fight scenes and a ton of blowups, this is your movie pick.
