At the end of the monsters-versus-robots flick "Pacific Rim," a breach at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean is closed, plugging a hole that allowed hellish creatures to emerge and terrorize the globe. But after the movie earned $400 million worldwide, was that portal really going to stay closed? Original writer Travis Beacham and director-writer Guillermo del Toro haven't returned (though del Toro is still a producer), nor have its original stars, Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba.Steven S. DeKnight, who created and ran the TV series "Spartacus" on Starz, was tapped to direct while del Toro focused on the smaller monster movie "Shape of Water". If the first movie's fight sequences were often set in the rainy dark, "Pacific Rim Uprising" embraces the light.Part of the success of the "Pacific Rim" films is that they have cobbled together enough elements of other films to make them familiar yet newish."Pacific Rim Uprising" is so confident in itself that it basically promises a third film as the end credits roll.
