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..

It Has John Boyega In It
2 March 2019 | by domonicbroxtonSee all my reviews

Of course it will suck. if you see anyone from the Disney so-called Star Wars endless series just avoid the movie. It is simple. The Chinese can buy all the American studios they want. A good film is still needs a good script, good actors and actresses and a reason to exist. One more retarded sequel won't cange anything.
