PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost, reunites with Mako Mori to lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots, including rival Lambert and 15-year-old hacker Amara, against a new Kaiju threat.
This was the first "Pacific Rim" feature to be shot in Panavision (anamorphic) 2.39:1, a format favored by DP Dan Mindel.
Don't mess with my toppings, man.
The film posits that the Precursors' ultimate plan was to reach Mount Fuji and all the cities they leveled were just in the way. This makes no sense, as the kaiju attacked cities all across the Pacific, most of which are in the complete opposite direction.
The Universal Studios and Legendary Pictures logos appear as Jaeger displays.
