Pacific Rim Uprising

I picked this up yesterday and actually sat down and watched it Last night.
It's a movie that gets going and doesn't really stop. I found getting to the end of the movie surprising as I thought it went by quick.
It's a fun movie if your into that Japanese Mech Monster type movies.

Audio wise it was very good. Dynamic and some really cool sound effects. I found myself really digging the overall experience.
Video wise it's clean and clear it's in 4k HDR. I also have the 3D version that came with it. I'll have to fool around with that for a minute but I'm no fan of 3D.

If you enjoyed the first one then your enjoy this version.

    Nice. I purchased the original Pacific Rim on BluRay and have yet to watch it. Thanks for the reminder, I should find some time and crank it up this weekend.

    My only complaint was that they didn't let Ramin Djawadi compose the score for the second installment of Pacific Rim. Lorne Balfe isn't bad per say but he is better suited to Mission: Impossible than Pacific Rim.

    Agreed , the First one was a better movie all together.

    The commercials really lined up with my thoughts of the movie... it was fun but the first was much better...
