John Boyega (Star Wars series) is the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity's victory against the monstrous "Kaiju." Now an even more fearsome alien threat has been unleashed on the world and Jake is called back into action by his former co-pilot, Lambert (Scott Eastwood), and a 15-year-old Jaeger hacker, Amara (Cailee Spaeny). Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Pacific Rim Uprising won't win any points for subtlety or originality, but it delivers enough of the rock 'em-sock 'em robots-vs.-kaiju thrills that fans of the original will be looking for.

Surprisingly fun (but violent) monsters vs. robots sequel.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pacific Rim: Uprising is the sequel to 2013's Pacific Rim. Like the first movie, it has tons of explosive, large-scale action/fantasy violence. The giants shoot and beat one another up with fists and various weapons, leading to massive destruction and offscreen deaths. There's also some creepy, alien-related imagery, a little blood, and fighting/punching. Two men have a crush on the same woman; she kisses them both on the cheek, but nothing more comes of it. Language includes a smattering of words like "s--t," "ass," "bastard," "bitch," etc. An adult character drinks a couple of times. Guillermo Del Toro didn't direct this one as he did the original (he was a producer this time around), but it's still surprisingly fun, with some very likable and fairly positive, diverse characters who work together well as a team. John Boyega and Scott Eastwood co-star.
