Pacific Rim Uprising is one of the most disappointing movies of all time for me. The story in this movie is so weird and it does not work at all. It still has some decent action scenes but it never comes close to the first movie Pacific Rim (2013). They also gave this movie a new look what makes it look more like a Power Rangers movie than a Pacific Rim movie.
And i felt like I was watching a Disney movie online. I could almost feel real sensations watching that movie but with this second one, I almost fall asleep. That teenager bullshit put the movie in a bad position. The story maybe could be great but didn’t feel any connection to any character. Also, it looks like a Transformers movie which you can free download off course.
Even though it isn’t as good as the first movie, the fighting is a little bit boring compared to the first and the characters doesn’t have as good backstories and interesting personalities as the characters in the first movie. but PR uprising gets better the more you watch of it and it explains why the kaijus actually have been attacking earth. I still recommend watching this in HD.
Stars : John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny
The "back of the box" was a little vague. I had hoped Austin and Lundgren would share more screen time being badasses but they are on opposite sides here and don't meet until the finale. what could have been an epic fight scene between two guys who know how to fight fell flat. They never really explained the history between the two, either - "They don't like each other" isn't enough to give substance to the climax. Did I expect too much from the b-listers? Maybe. The movie itself is formulaic and nothing new, though, so one can only hope that the particulars can bring some awesome to the table, but they don't.

A bone-crunching and hard-hitting action-thriller. A tough, stylish, thrilling and fun action flick that has plenty of bullets, fights, suspense and excitement to go around. A pulse-pounding and action-packed thrill-ride from start to finish that has a suspenseful story and some great character moments. It's explosive and very cool. Steve Austin and Dolph Lungdren are pure dynamite on the screen. Austin has never been tougher or cooler. Lungdren is at his best. One of the best action films Lungdren and Austin have ever been in. These two great and dynamic action stars are always great to watch and toward the conclusion, they get to have a great fight scene between the both of them that we didn't get to see in The Expendables. It's sharp and heart-pounding action entertainment.

Last Time It Was Seagal, This Time Steve Austin Appears With Action Superstar Dolph Lundgren In The Usual Styled Action Thriller, With A Familliar Story Which Is Usually Been Made At Least A Dozen Times, But Still Works Out As An Enjoyable Time-Filler. In This We See Tommy (Austin) Get A Job, Deliver The Package To The German (Lundgren), Don't Open It, Don't Let It Out Of Your Sight, Protect It With Your Life. But Their Are Mobsters Who Are At War With The German And Try To Stop Tommy From Delivering The Package. An Overdone Story With Enough Directorial Skill, Action Scenes And Two Great Action Stars Makes This Rather Enjoyable. The Downfall Of This Film On A Personal Note Is That Lundgren Gets Second Bill & Hasn't Really Got A Role In Which He Can Show His Experience In The Action Perspective.
