I thought the first Pacific Rim was OK - I mean, it's Guillermo del Toro, so there is some merit even if it was giant robots beating on giant monsters. This sequel suffers from a lack of del Toro - also a lack on interesting characters and only a slightly interesting story.

Unless you're hard up on giant robot fights, look elsewhere.

We are a family now, and we are earth’s last defense.
What amazed me the most was the fact that I couldn’t remember much of “Pacific Rim“, even though I thought it was an original-looking film years ago. No worries. Little by little everything is explained again in such a way that I partially knew it again. And even though “Pacific Rim” wasn’t high-quality cinema and simply a very expensive monster film with superb looking computer-generated images, the film impressed me at the time. “Pacific Rim” was brainless amusement with a high entertainment value. This sequel is simply a duplicate with other main characters in identical Jaegers. But it’s so irritating and annoying mostly. I …

Looks bad ass indeed. I'm&nbsp;expecting a great movie - expecting a very weak storyline, cliche&nbsp;lines, and BADASS action scenes.- Classic action movie.&nbsp;
