Pacific Rim: Uprising is not better than it’s predecessor, but if you’re looking for a popcorn flick with giant robots and monsters fighting, then you might want to consider this one. It’s not great, but it’s kind of enjoyable.

John Boyega plays the lead in this movie, with Cailee Spaeny making a strong play for second place. Unfortunately they are the only two interesting characters in the movie, and that’s mostly because none of the other characters are really explored or developed.

It’s there that he runs into Spaeny’s character, Amara Namani, who has built her own Jaeger, which is also highly illegal.
