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

During an interview with Collider in November 2014, Guillermo del Toro stated that Charlie Day's character, Dr. Newton Geiszler, and Burn Gorman's character, Gottlieb, are in the sequel with the respective actors (Day and Gorman) reprising their roles from Pacific Rim (2013) for the sequel. del Toro commented on it, stating, "Yes. It's quite a different movie from the first one in that, but I think that two of our main characters like in the first one are Burn and Charlie. They are really, really -- I mean, honestly, they are probably the guys I have the most fun writing, along with Hannibal Chau, so just from a purely selfish drive, I like writing them. I love writing for Charlie and Burn. I mean, [Hunnam] in Crimson Peak (2015) for that reason, because I love working with him." See more »

The Chinese bought this studio...
15 August 2018 | by bpg-11955See all my reviews

... so now all the commanders and cool persons are Chinese. Kaiju are Japanese invention but the only Japanese is killed off in the first five minutes. The director should look in the mirror, update his resume (maximum lying helps) and apply to stock aisles at the local supermarket
