Guillermo del Toro (who just won Oscars for “The Shape of Water”) created the original “Rim,” but abandoned this sequel…and it shows. There’s none of his visual inventiveness or compelling storytelling. The first half wastes time setting up relationships with uninteresting characters (headed by John Boyega). After suffering thru that, there’s an extended, noisy battle of giant robots vs. a creature from the deep and an evil machine. The destruction is so massive and repetitive that it quickly devolves into a dull roar. I didn’t love the first one (review here) and I absolutely hated this one.
