I hate giving three-star reviews. Who reads three-star reviews!? But, it is what it is. Is it a fun movie? Yeee... kind of. Is it a good plot line? It's okay, although pretty forgettable and pretty darned contrived. Are the characters good? Certainly no better than the first Pacific Rim (which I loved, but whose main character was downright yawn-inducing.) I watched the movie with my 22 year old son and halfway through the movie I paused it and quipped, "You know what this kaiju movie could really use....? Some KAIJU!" They don't show up until much too late in the movie (except in flashback type settings) and they almost seem like an afterthought. Sort of like, "Oh crap we made this Pacific Rim movie but forgot to put any kaiju in the plot." The acting is not horrible, but certainly not terrific. (Sorry, John Boyega gets way too much credit as an actor.) It's worth watching, maybe even renting, but it's definitely not worth the twenty bucks I spent on the blue-ray. Save your money for a better movie.

It's a fun movie and safe enough for my 11 year old.

This movie is not very good, but what are you expecting with Giant Robots vs Giant Alien Monsters? It's entertaining and fun to watch, but no there aren't great plot developments and solid acting. If you liked the first, you will enjoy this one as well.

I held off watching this because of all the bad reviews. After seeing it myself I liked it. It fit well with the first movie and the acting was good. The story line was great as well don't want to spoil it for anyone so I won't give particulars. Robots and action sequences were good as well. I think I would have gone with a bit different designs and weapons knowing they are up against monsters, but all in all not a bad sequel. I think the other reviews were a bit harsh.

For first time viewing I watched the original again then enjoyed the sequel!

I couldn’t wait to see this movie. Unlike the original- this movie had some comedy in it. Action scenes were awesome. Story line wasn’t bad, but I did hope for more.
Over all not a bad movie

3 stars is rounding up because, in truth, I can barely tell the difference between this movie and one of the Transformers. Why not just merge the two storylines, at this point? I was kind of hoping this story was going to lead somewhere, like "who are the mysterious engineers of the Kaiju?, or "we closed one gate, but now we know for a fact there are other dimensions and gateways to said dimensions" and you just leave that alone? Instead you opt for the same old tired grandiose display of giants smashing through buildings. Pure SFX and nonstop distraction. Seriously, you could take out the original story of another dimension, replace it with aliens and you have simply another addition to the transformer series. I was hoping this would go more in depth, but it only made everything more superficial. IF you make a sequel/prequel, how about some story, rather than spectacle?

I thought it was pretty cool. Not as good as the first, but not a bad sequel either. Overall it had enough of the elements of the first one to keep a fan engaged and satisfied, but could have had more kaiju action for sure. Looking forward to a third one if they make it.

I had fun, I was entertained. Big summer blockbuster film made for popcorn munching, and that's ok. Great special effects, giant robots and alien monsters. I hope in the 3rd film we take the fight to the Precurser home planet and see their alien land. Recommended.
