(70) Uprising (mostly) captures the look and feel of Pacific Rim. Just as Scrapper is essentially a “Jaeger mini”, Uprising is basically “Rim lite”. Not exactly off-brand, but not quite genuine. The departure of del Toro certainly had its creative toll, yet the are things Uprising does right that other Legendary flicks might make note of – namely, extended battles in broad daylight without constantly transitioning back and forth to mundane side-characters.
