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..
Unlike Gipsy Danger in the first film, who was able to activate 2 Chain Swords, Gipsy Avenger, in this film, appears to only have one and it can only be activated on the Jaeger's left arm. See more »
With the final boost into the atmosphere, the pilots are warned that Gipsy Avenger could burn up on re-entry. The Jaeger is shown burning up, however, even with a hole through the visor, the two pilots remain unaffected, since they are protected by their pilot suits. See more »
I am not one of those folk who complain that since Legendary was purchased by a Chinese company all the actors and actresses are Chinese. Hollywood is doing that on its own anyway in order to sell tickets in China. Moreover, for years the Chinese (and everyone else) have seen Caucasians in films even those happening in the Far East (think of Lost In Translation for example). Although I have to admit that placing Chinese actors in a lore stemmed from Japan is just as bad as Ghost In The Shell's whitewashing case.
What I do object to is bad acting, a lack of story and studios thinking loud noises that come at us non-stop make up for characters, a nice story line or talented actors. I love seeing beautiful women in films (shoot me, I am a man), but they must be able to act too and have a script to stand on please.
