Pacific Rim Uprising
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 51min

  • Directed by: Steven S. DeKnight
  • Cast: John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, Adria Arjona, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi
  • UK release: 23 March 2018

Ten years after the original war between humans controlling giant robots and creatures from the sea, Jake (Boyega) is living in the shadow of his father; but then a robot goes rogue. DeKnight does a fair job with the action and it’s a competent enough sequel to a far from stunning original.
