Daniel Howat’s review published on Letterboxd :
If you’re just looking for robots fighting monsters, this movie will give you your fix. Otherwise, it’s generic and forgettable. Filled to the brim with exposition for a story we don’t care about, we just keep waiting for the next action sequence.
John Boyega is charismatic, which helps, but there’s just not much to care about here. The visuals are fine, but the first film looked far better (five years ago!).
You can skip this one, unless you’ll be fine with just some crazy action. Do your thing.
