Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Mako Mori's death is quite intense and can be very saddening. Her brother, Jake is seen crying, and greatly hurt about her death, in a few scenes. This scene is very emotional and intense.
  • In a flashback scene, young Amara sees her parents and siblings killed by a Kaiju all at once right before her eyes. A very traumatizing scene, and she is seen crying along with Jake trying to comfort her, shedding tears as well after feeling the pain.
  • Cadet Suresh's death scene is extremely intense and saddening. Especially because, he is only a young teenage boy, trying to save the world. After disobeying Jake's commands, and attacking the kaiju, their jaeger is thrown into buildings. His partner is injured, blood is visible, he reports that he has made it, he turns his head, and sees Suresh's corpse buried under debris (body not shown), with only one hand covered in blood sticking up. He reports Suresh has been killed, he gets very emotional.
