Ratings


1 = Trash

2 =Meh

3 = OK

4 = Solid

5 = Bomb


Acting/ Performance



X



Comments: 
John Boyega evidently took the whole acting budget because he brought a stellar performance and everyone else was just phoning it in. 

Writing/Screenplay

Comments: 
I didn't see the first movie, so I can only judge this film as a stand alone project. And this stand alone story was just meh. I felt like the writers were just checking off boxes of necessities for a generic action movie. I can't comment on the first movie, but this film didn't add anything to the franchise.

Cinematography

Comments:
For a film about giant robots fighting giant monsters, it was surprisingly very visually uncaptivating. 

Costume Design

Comments:
The wardrobe was nothing special.  I expected them to be less similar to clothing of today - more futuristic, but it was just plain. The Jaeger suits were pretty cool though! 

Editing/Special Effects

Comments:
The fight scenes were underwhelming. It kind of felt like watching an  old Power Rangers episode. But I did like the cuts between the Jaegers fighting and the pilots inside.

Sound/Music

Comments: 
The music was nothing special, and added nothing to the scenes.


Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 2.8/5.0

Recommendation: Nah!

Pacific Rim: Uprising is a generic action movie about giant robots and giant monsters. My overall consensus of this film is underwhelming. I did't watch the first Pacific Rim, but if it was any good, this film did it a disservice. Evidently, the first film wad good enough to warrant a sequel, but the quality of the 2nd film can almost guarantee the end of this franchise.  I wouldn't recommend this film, unless you're a fan of the previous film. And even then, you really could just wait until it comes on TV. Overall this film is nothing special and everyone can pass on it.


Au Revoir,
