Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost, reunites with Mako Mori to lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots, including rival Lambert and 15-year-old hacker Amara, against a new Kaiju threat.

I was pleasantly surprised by Pacific Rim: Uprising. The movie is pretty true to the trailer. There were quite a few action movie troupes used but they did throw in a few surprise twists. The story focused on being a team player and there wasn't a romantic subplot like the first movie. Kids and adults will leave wanting to pilot their own Jaeger.

I thought the CGI was fabulous. John Boyega does a good job with the rebellious-son-of-a-war-hero character. You know the one that drops out of training program as a big disappointment with daddy issues but then forced back into the program to become the bestest hero ever. But my favorite was Spaney as the young hacker Amara. She kicked butt without acting like a brat. I didn't realize Scott Eastwood (Clint's son) was in the cast...that man is beautiful...I'm just saying...

The movie is full of action and best seen on the big screen. If you love watching big robots fighting big monsters you're gonna love this. You don't have to see the first Pacific Rim to appreciate the action, but I went with a friend who hadn't seen the first movie and they were a little lost. The movie doesn't explain things like drifting and where the Kaiju

There are no after-credit scenes.
