It’s enjoyable, does some great things with the characters and Johnny Depp was surprisingly pretty good, but it pales in comparison with the first one for me.
A lot of the elements I liked about that one are stretched pretty thin here, as we move toward Harry Potter prequel territory which I’m not super interested in.
Plus the film is a bit of an incoherent mess at times.
It’s wonderful to look at though and Newt Scamander is the best. I’d watch 10 of these just for him.
Pacific Rim is an awesome, throwback monster movie with lovable characters, incredible visuals, immense style and a ton of heart, created by a true artist with passion for what he's doing. It wasn't trying to set up a sequel or pander to anyone, it was just pure, fun.
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…
