    It’s full of fantastic action scenes, a compelling story and great voice acting all-round. 
    Reaally dug the musical score too.

    Pacific Rim: Uprising is a fucking product.

    For every cool moment there are 5 eye-rolls and groans. They've completely missed what made the original great. There's no heart, all of the new…
