I kinda mildly enjoyed Pacific Rim: Uprising because, y'know, it's giant robots fighting monsters and other giant robots. But I still thought it was terrible. Objectively, I felt like it was terrible in almost every way. Lazily written, stock characters, a bunch of unknown actors largely devoid of screen presence, some really meh monster-robot fights. They really dumbed down the two-pilot concept, didn't they.
Giant robots doing parkour-style triangle jumps off the sides of skyscrapers so they deliver a clumsy martial arts kick is not what I expected to see. Or wanted to see. I'm kinda sad none of the kaiju knows how to do a proper phoenix splash.
The various heel and babyface turns meant nothing because no one had much of a character to play. I'm looking at you, Asian female head of the corporation Charlie Day's character worked for. Not that Day's turn had much impact either.
Saw Tag last night on a lark and I’m glad I did. Much funnier than the reviews made me believe.
