Pacific Rim Uprising

I can’t say I really liked this. I liked the first one a lot, and the idea of giant mechs fighting monsters is one I quite like, but this sequel just fell flat for me. Sure, the big action set piece in Tokyo at the end was pretty fun, but getting there felt like a chore. I wasn’t into the cast, and didn’t care at all for any of the young recruits. And Charlie Day’s character was annoying pretty much anytime he was on screen. Don’t think I’d want another film in this series, unless it’s again directed by Del Toro.
