Old School but Fascinating (6.4/10)

Some critics mind may try to make the movie down because of no new idea or script. But, Pacific Rim Uprising does justice to each element being a mainstream flick.

In the concept, it adds fine value by introducing giant machines that feels really fascinating.

The script turns much compelling with multiple conflicts, differences in ideology and nice turns.
In a sum up, the audience gets what they want to watch in a sci-fi mainstream cinema. Having predicted the end, I still enjoyed the action scenes and events during the climax. The movie never loses its grip and intensity.

I too haven’t rated it 7 or above, but the fact is you get more in less ratings. Mainstream lovers must watch it.

Guillermo del Toro in an interview with Collider spoke about setting the stage of the film in stating: "It's a few years after the first one. It's not an immediate follow-up. It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after - what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat. It's quite a jump."

In 2016 it was said that Charlie Hunnam would not be returning as Raleigh Becket.
