Storyline

It is 2035, ten years after the Battle of the Breach, in which the inter-dimensional portal created by the Precursors (through which they sent marauding Kaiju) was closed. Former Jaeger pilot Jake Pentecost - son of Battle of the Breach hero Stacker Pentecost - makes a living by stealing and selling Jaeger parts on the black market in the Los Angeles area. After he tracks part of a disabled Jaeger's power core to the secret workshop of fifteen year-old Jaeger enthusiast Amara Namani, both are arrested by the Pan-Pacific Defense Corps (PPDC) after an altercation between Amara's small, single-pilot Jaeger Scrapper and the Police Jaeger November Ajax. A holographic transmission of Jake's adoptive sister and PPDC Secretary General Mako Mori persuades him to return to PPDC as an instructor, with Amara as his recruit..

Trivia

Bracer Phoenix was just the second Mark-5 Jaeger, with the first being Striker Eureka. All of the other Jaegers, (Gipsy Avenger, Saber Athena, Titan Redeemer, Guardian Bravo) are Mark-6's. See more »

Goofs

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. See more »

User Reviews

Just another sequel
15 October 2018 | by g-80881See all my reviews

Capitalism strikes again! They just have to milk mulla out of every single thing.

Boring, stupid, idiotic and pushing a Chinese product placement agenda.

Loved the teen girl making a gigantic sentient robot on her own though... not!
