I am a HUGE monster movie fan. I have been for as long as I can remember, ever since my parents rented some old Godzilla VHS tapes from the local video store. When Pacific Rim was released, it was a colorful, campy yet intense popcorn flick that kept me on the edge of my seat with its fun characters and over the top action. With Pacific Rim Uprising, it takes a more serious look at the world the films take place in, and ask bigger questions like “Why are the Kaiju attacking to begin with? What can we do to stop them to minimize loss of life? How do we prepare the next generation of Jaeger Pilots?” This film answers all of these questions and more; leaving you wanting to know more about the universe the movie takes place in.
