While a new threat emerges, Jake must team up with a young female agent named Amara Namani, a self-taught engineer with a desire to fight the Kaiju. Together, the two train and improve an old Jaeger named Gypsy Avenger, to be ready to fight the Kaiju and this new threat.

However, Jake and his teammates quickly realize that the Kaiju are not the only threat. Inside the Jaeger program, there is betrayal and conspiracy by those who want to use Jaeger for their own purposes. The fight against the Kaiju becomes more complicated than ever as they face both internal and external enemies.

From fierce battles between Jaegers and Kaiju, to breathtaking chases across urban areas, the film constantly brings eye-catching action scenes to the audience.

In addition, Pacific Rim: Uprising also raises questions about courage, responsibility and sacrifice for a goal larger than oneself. The main characters face a difficult decision between protecting the world and protecting their own lives.

However, despite the positive elements, Pacific Rim: Uprising also encountered some criticism for the plot feeling a bit lackluster compared to the first part and the lack of full character development. Some viewers felt that the film lacked depth in exploring the psychological and human aspects of the story.

In short, Pacific Rim: Uprising continues to be an entertaining film with unique action scenes and a vast sci-fi world. Although it did not achieve the same success as the first part in attracting and pleasing all audiences, it is still worth watching for those who love action and science fiction films.
