When it comes to the original Pacific Rim, I must admit that for as much as I worship at the altar of Guillermo del Toro, it’s a film that doesn’t necessarily rank in the top five del Toro joints whenever I’m prattling off my favorites. I enjoy it and Guillermo’s love of kaiju is evident in every single frame, but for me, Pacific Rim fell just a bit short in terms being an all-out home run.

DeKnight, at the helm, but the sequel really surprised me—and in a good way. Uprising is not only a lot of fun and endlessly entertaining, but it’s a fantastic showcase for John Boyega’s boundless charms and infectious charisma. Oh, and all the monsters and robot fights are pretty rad, too.

And in this case, “it” happens to be a manipulative demonic force with a nasty sense of humor.
