    It's more a spoof of the first one than a sequel. The Day thing was stupid, the cadets stuff was only barely introduced, none of the characters were really developed, the whole script was just poorly done. No way it gets a third one going.

    I can say, and I know MANY people would agree, that the second movie was horrible and in my opinion- they never should've made it. The first movie was a great movie, great plot, really good character backgrounds and development; it'll definitely go down as a classic- it was better off being left with no sequel at all.

    My first thought after seeing it: same shit as Independence Day 2, especially with the shitty hint to a sequel...

    The only thing I liked about this movie were the cgi robots. They should of made a gundam wings movie instead.

    I liked this movie but I think its major flaws is its convoluted storytelling that feels too long and plus the lack of a scary villain. The scientist guy jokester turned villain is just bland and not impressive at all justifying himself by teenage tantrums of being laughed at? Ridiculous. I'd rather see some terrorist group or mafia led by Perlman doing some nasty shit they regret with the aliens. Also the way robots just didn't care about the sorroundings in fights while you saw people running everywhere was kind of creepy and dark.

    Funny... I had a lot of fun with Pacific Rim Uprising. And actually, I do believe it was, in many ways, better than the first one.

    I Like this movie btw Why does everyone give Peter Rabbit Movie a passed not this movie?

    Watching Pacific Rim: Uprising right now but it sucks so bad I'm not going to finish it, Boyega isn't saving it for me(nor did he for Star Wars the last Jedi). I'm a huge fan of the first Pacific Rim so this is very disappointing. They gave Mako a stupid death, honestly it was just disrespectful.

    I found throughout the movie I was comparing Pacific Rim Uprising to Transformers 5, maybe that’s why I had a better time

    Just saw it and I got angry how stupid it was. It was Bad. I could care less about what happened to anyone in this movie and the action scene was ridiculous and unbelievable. The first Pacific Rim movie was a C+, this was an F. If you see the last scene there looks to be another movie where they attack these creatures in their universe, I guess. Who cares, put this to bed.

    I watched part 1 and 2 today, seen part 1 numerous times and still love it, I thought part 2 tho was bloody awful imo, and the scientist lads were completely wasted in it, and the whole son thing, what was that all about!

    Then why not make a rare earth elements missile and destroy the Kaiju while in the Pacific????????

    i liked the movie, they did mention the risk of the kaiju drifting with the human before so i thought the charlie thing made sense, because he is the jaeger and the precursor is the pilot, so highjacking his mind shouldnt be that hard.

    The Gypsy Avenger thing reminds me of Jurassic Park 3, where we had 1 thing from the previous movie that we all love to death (The T-Rex, Gypsy Danger) Then in the next movie that thing we love get annihilated by some completely new thing and the writers are like “Now you must love this new thing”

    2nd movie suuuucks, if you dont want the original crew! dont kill em just dont invite them, killing Mako was the worst now like last Starwars movie you dont let any space for a real 3 movie, what is this Disney killing main characters? oh succks. Hope no be a 3erd movie and if they trying go with del Toro he say no thanks. Thank God I didn't see it on the Theather.

    Hi Jeremy, I was first introduced to you when you joined Collider movie talks. I want to say I really enjoy your channel and your humorous takes om things. I have two requests, 1) please do more comment reaction videos about being a Disney/Marvel/DC shell and 2) I need 1000% more of your dogs on screen. They are ADORABLE!!! 😍😍😍😊😊😊
    Thank you for all you do and for the free funny.

    I want to believe that uprising was a fake movie and the real sequel to pacific rim will be better than the first one. John wick 2 gave me faith that sequels can be so much better.

    This film has nothing to do with the first film might well rename it Monsters Vs Robots cast are pointless , action scenes poor , missed the comedy elements and too long . Also one spoiler character from the first film suddenly turns why so unnecessary.

    I LOVED Pacific Rim even throughout the plot holes, but Pacific Rim Uprising wasn't NEARLY as enjoyable. The story had potential but was poorly executed and the characters weren't fleshed out whatsoever. The fight scences, of course, were spectacular, but didn't showcase even a fraction of the delight and magnificence of the battles seen in the first film. I was laughing so hard when Gypsy saved a few people by catching a falling helicopter pad, but then purposely smashes about seven skyscrapers full of hundreds of people in each to be used as an attack..... then jokes about doing it!!!!
