“Pacific Rim Uprising”: Review

THR says: ‘Designed to appeal to adolescents of all ages, Pacific Rim Uprising is a film for anyone whose mental development peaked when they were playing Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots. This sequel to the 2013 hit directed by Guillermo del Toro — you know, the guy who won the directing Oscar this year — brings nothing new to the franchise except repetition. Considering that the mania for the similar Transformer films seems to be thankfully abating, it’s hard to imagine that audiences are clamoring for yet more clashes between giant CGI robots. Even if the Pacific Rim movies throw in giant lizards to boot.’
