Pacific Rim: Uprising

Lots of exposition to make sure you remember the last one. No major retcons that I noticed.

Burns through most of the obvious ideas:

  • Kaiju controlled Jaegers
  • 3 Kaijus being fused together
  • Obviously evil Chinese corporate CEO who turns out to be victim of alien-controlled American scientist (follow the money, there are Chinese producers galore)

Adds no more Super Sentai tropes that weren’t present on the first one.


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
