Pacific Rim: Uprising
A sequel to Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim'. Ten years after the war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures called the kaiju had ended, a new threat is coming.
Humankind had overcome the kaiju (invading monsters coming through a dimensional rift on the ocean floor) with the aid of human-piloted, supersized robots called Jaegers. Now, ten years after the destruction, life in the damaged cities is about to go back to normal. Jake, the son of military commander Stacker Pentecost (who sacrificed himself during the war) is being tangled up in a shady business. Though once a promising pilot himself, he turned away from the Jaeger programme. He is forced to change his mind and enlist again when a mysterious and destructive Jaeger appears and starts to demolish the city. To make things worse, the vicious kaijus are about to strike again.

The reception of Steven S. DeKnigh's sequel is rather ambiguous so far, most of the critics saying that the film is incredibly dumb and botched, for exemple according to The Guardian "it makes you yearn for the nuance and complex characterisation of the Transformers series" or according to the Rolling Stone "it's everything that's wrong with our franchise-obsessed movie culture". Some also resent the fact that the visual part of the film became less atmospheric, since most of the action scenes take place in stark daylight, instead of the neon-drenched night battles pictured in the previous movie. But others say that the film delivers successfully that kind of rock 'em, sock 'em action and mass destruction (supersized robot style) that can be appealing for the fans of the genre.
