Cinema Releases March 23 2018 including Pacific Rim: Uprising

This week’s big action blockbuster is Pacific Rim: Uprising which lands in cinemas on both sides of the Atlantic although the overall opinion on this one seems to be a fairly average film at best.

Maybe a better choice is the horror/thriller Unsane starring Claire Foy which also releases in both UK and USA. In any case there are quite a few new releases to choose from this week so let’s take a closer look at each of them. These are the cinema releases for March 23 2018.

Comment by Dr. Loomis (Cinema Releases March 23 2018)

Quite a busy week of releases however I’m struggling to find anything that will drag me to my local cinema.  For instance Pacific Rim: Uprising just looks like every other Hollywood, film all action and effects but no compelling or thought-provoking plotline. 

The characters seem to be mere clones of every other big blockbuster franchise, is it really too much to ask to add a little more depth to these mainstream movies?
