Pacific Rim Uprising naturally shares a lot of things with its predecessor. It's a big, dumb film about big, cool robots, and for the most part, it's good fun. But something huge happens early in Uprising that makes it clear why the sequel fundamentally lacks the heart that made its predecessor so good.
