Pacific Rim: Uprising - Did This New Team Fail?

From the first film featuring these mechanical wonders, it was inevitable that there will be sequels lined up. But will the new team for Pacific Rim: Uprising up to the expectations set by the first one?

Set 10 years after the Breach War,  a new generation of fighters and pilots are preparing for any posibility that kaijus would come back. And based on the trailer, they did and they seem to have something more advanced against the new Jeagers; Gypsy Avenger, Saber Athena, Bracer Pheonix, and Guardian Bravo.

Jake Pentecost join Nate Lambet to operate Gypsy Avenger along with young recruits who will trained to pilot the other Jeagers. Surprising the coalition is a rogue jeager and also the appearance of kaijus that sparked another dilemma of destruction especially in cities. I love the new jeagers, specially Saber Athena, yet I still love the original ones. The ten year gap between the two film also made a void between the two films.

Pacific Rim: Uprising stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona, Zhang Jin, and Charlie Day. Now showing in cinemas nationwide.

Deliberation time kids!
