Sign in. As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. When monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot Charlie Hunnam and an untested trainee Rinko Kikuchi - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.

But he was also steeped in its antecedents: Toho monster films, Voltron , decades of sci-fi. The film he was planning was a playground toy battle writ large, imagined by a guy with the exuberance and resources necessary to build his own toys. Not to drag Steven S. While it monster-robot fights are just as fun the second time around, it seems content simply to play the same notes as the original. And without the skill of del Toro and original screenwriter Travis Beacham, Uprising is nothing more than the wedding-band cover version of Pacific Rim. No, Pacific Rim wasn't deep. Yes, that ending was cornier than Iowa in the summertime.
