Pacific Rim Uprising – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Pacific Rim 2 was meant to be pretty terrible.  After all I REALLY wasn’t a fan of the original and the trailers, cast and advanced buzz did very little to sell this sequel.  I guess then it was a pleasant surprise that Pacific Rim 2 actually turned out to be really good fun.  Okay it’s still rubbish for sure but it zips along, the action is watchable and the CGI decent.  Not every film has to be Goodfellas and there’s always a place for mindless fluff like this. Just don’t expect to remember too much after you leave.

Best Bit: Yaeger arrived  

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Pacific Rim, Real Steel, Godzilla
