As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
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..
The conscripted scavenger character, Amana Namani, played by actress Cailee Spaeny, innovatively pilots her self-made Jaeger, that has the call sign "Scrapper," a term very aptly used from orthodox western boxing, which describes a fighter that is small in stature but has strong willpower. These attributes are frequently shown or referenced during the movie. See more »
When talking to Scott Eastwood's character and making a bowl of ice cream, John Boyega's character starts out with the whipped cream bottle in his right hand. In the next shot (behind John Boyega), it's in his left, and then the shot after that it's back in his right. See more »
Just the other day i saw the first movie and what a difference between them.
the first one had depth, the characters were someone to relate to. I had high hopes for the sequel but i was disappointed. The actors are young very young and it shows on the acting skills and the characters they portrays. (what no adaults agreed to play in the movie?). i'm sorry to say the eastwood jr. is just a preaty face and does'nt have to presence like his fathers. and what with all those Japanese walking around? why don't French, Germens, Israelis?
and that Shao lady, by talking english and dissolving the hair and playing 'rambo' you're not making you're performence better.
To sum everything up the movie is a waste of time I hope the director will learm from his mistake and the third movie will be better.
