Pacific Rim was one of my favorite mech movies of all time. I’mma let you finish. Pacific Rim 2 Uprising has my hopes shattered. Why? Guillermo del Toro is not directing it. You can already tell by the Pacific Rim Uprising trailer. It lacks that dark, no one can stop the Kaiju story. Now you have a bunch of kids, in Jagers ready to take on Kaijus, like they're punching bags. I feel like this movie is focused more for children then we adults must save the world. Hasbro probably has an assembly line ready to push out Pacific Rim toys after it comes out. Anyways, I haven't seen it yet but will definitely check it out to see how bad it is. I'm just a big fan when it comes to giant robot movies. Transformers was a letdown and Pacific Rim was my savior. Now the new one doesn't look to promising. Most of the filming was was done in Australia, China and in studios. Check out the links below to get an ideal of where they were shot on Google Maps.
