Admittedly, The Asylum do have a small group of watchable films and the occasional big emphasis on that word above average one, unfortunately outweighed by the lacklustre at best and often dreadful films they churn out. The dialogue is just painful, the interplay is awkward and the actors look even more uncomfortable delivering it while the scripting itself is shallow, on the wrong side of camp and rambling and if you're looking for sense you won't find it. Actually I watched this movie as I thought It was a sequel of Pacific Rim 6. Have yet to see the second 'Pacific Rim', but it, although hearing negative comments on it, would have to be really awful to be worse than 'Atlantic Rim 2', that manages to be even worse than its predecessor. Sweet lord holy mother fvcking. Summing up, even when knowing what to expect 'Atlantic Rim 2' was an abomination.
You might was well just watch a candle melt - it will be more entertaining. I am so glad I did not pay to see this film at the cinema. This movie is so bad that I want to start up a GoFundMe page so that I personally can commence legal action to shut this company down. The story as to be expected shows The Asylum's complete lack of originality, it's a decent idea but executed horribly. The special effects are nowhere near as good as the original and the whole film has a 'b-movie on a budget' feel to it. Of course you know exactly what you are getting yourself into every time The Asylum puts out another mockbuster movie.
Actually I watched this movie as I thought It was a sequel of Pacific Rim 6. Do not waste your time :. Regarding the acting, it gives insult to the word amateurish, with a mix of looking constipated, bad overacting, having the inability of acting scared or fearful of their situation and just acting emotionless. It stuck very much true to the formula that The Asylum uses time and time again. None of the characters are likable, they have cardboard personalities- once you get over the fact that once again The Asylum are using literally every cliché in the book- and are severely undeveloped, with a mix of dull as dishwater and cartoonish. No idea how I made it through this - yes.
It doesn't even have dependable actors trying to save it or being wasted. The music does not fit the scene, especially with the constant tension that never resolves. There's is no way such a movie intended to make it serious right?? They are some of the shoddiest for any film seen not just recently but actually ever, they are incredibly fake-looking and afterthought-like, quality so cheap they would have been out of date and looked awful even in the 50s. It's not even good enough for the bargain bin! No idea how I made it through this - yes. It beggars belief that this company is still in existence and that no movie company has sued them.
As other reviews have said. This sequel was actually slightly worse than its predecessor, and that is no small accomplishment. Yea, pretty sure, I'm dead. I feel tremendous shame that I actually did, if not just to warn others to avoid at all costs. Despite hating the first 'Atlantic Rim' the first 'Pacific Rim' had its problems but it was to me reasonably entertaining and there is no question it is the better film , there was curiosity to see the second film that capitalised upon the second 'Pacific Rim's' release.
As other reviews have said. The music is generic and doesn't come across as memorable at all, sometimes at a sluggish tempo which made it a rather dull score too. It is a horrible experience. The characters in the movie were generic and had very little depth and flavor to them, which meant that you didn't buy into them nor did you invest any emotion to any of them. It is a sequel of Atlantic Rim , 1. The acting was absolutely horrible.
Have made no secret in the past of intensely disliking, and even outright hating a lot, a vast majority of The Asylum's near-universally maligned for good reason output, though there is curiosity as to whether they are capable of making something good and compulsive about their output's badness. The special effects are far worse here for instance, while far from great or even good they were the least bad asset of the first 'Atlantic Rim' whereas they are one of this film's biggest sore spots. Yet, I gave it 2! I almost stopped watching after 15 minutes but hoped it would improve - how wrong I was. . I don't want to throw total blame on the composer, because the director may have too much say, but, damn, doesn't anyone there understand the role of music in a film? They must be joking right? It's just ridiculous and dull, with no heart, charm or brains.
This could very well be one of the worst movies ever made. The acting was extremely bad, even by Asylum's standards. I feel sorry for the actors that will have this stench forever on their resume. This is waaaayyyyyyy tooooo dumb to young to realize. People spend time, money, resources to do this movie. I'm not kidding, this movie is a complete waste of time.
It's not even good enough for the bargain bin! I have watched several asylum movies and one thing is constant -- the music makes no sense. Anybody who expects thrills, fun and a little suspense are better off finding something else, none of those things are in 'Atlantic Rim 2'. I feel tremendous shame that I actually did, if not just to warn others to avoid at all costs. The acting is really bad maybe with the exception of Jenna Enns , the graphics are worst that my Z80 was able to do, the script. Then there is just too much music.
