Is 'Pacific Rim Uprising' any good?

The highly anticipated "Pacific Rim Uprising" just hit theaters, but the action flick only holds a 48 percent rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics call it a "Transformers"-like, mindless action movie. But the original "Pacific Rim" made more than $411 million at the box office worldwide. So it only makes sense that "Pacific Rim" is turned into a successful franchise that action-loving moviegoers can enjoy. What do you think?

Some moviegoers love mindless action. What's so wrong with that? Some argue "Pacific Rim Uprising" does action well. Toronto Star's Bruce Demara writes:

It’s 10 years later and another rock ’em sock ’em battle between the Jaegers and the Kaiju is in the offing.
But you’re going to have to wait quite a while because there’s a lot of intrigue going on beforehand and a new lead character to introduce.

Rolling Stone's David Fear calls the film mindless action in the same vein as "Transformers." He writes:

This is Transformers-level inanity. It will not make you feel like a 10-year-old, but it will make you feel 10 years older by the time you leave the theater. It is certainly not personal in any way, shape or form, just strictly chilly, corporate to a fault and somehow both chintzy and wildly overblown. Del Toro didn't direct it, though he is one of the credited executive producers. He should still sue for damages.
