I think it's the brightly lit daytime urban fighting. You see everything.

It doesn't look as bad as I feared.
Good to see fights taking place in the day, even if that makes the movie look more obvious CG looking than the first one.

I hope they keep the cutting between cockpit interiors and exteriors during the fight scenes to a minimum this time around. That shit was annoying in the first movie. It's like, OK, I get it, the robot moves mimic the pilots. Stop cutting away in the middle of awesome shit.

They already had power levels in the original. The last one they fought was their first Cat5 kaiju IIRC, while the two in Hong Kong were both Cat4.

I thought of that but how would that actually work? The Kaiju melding together clearly catches them off guard, for the Jaegers to merge they'd need to have that function already programmed into them, be built for the purpose of connecting. So unless they secretly expected that the need to Constructacon themselves would arise in the future, they'd need to build brand new Jaegers for that to work.

Thinking about it I'm actually gonna be kind of pissed if they just suddenly have the ability to connect without any build up or prior explanation, that's a huge logic gap.

Even though the art direction is IMO much worse compared to the first one's, I think the trailer looked all right so I'll still watch this one hoping the story and action is good.

Yeah, judging by this first trailer, I don't like the overall style as much as the first movie

They did say there would be an animated series to bridge the time between Pacific Rim 1 and 2...

I was really excited, now I'm apprehensive.

Looks like a coming of age film now, where good guys will fight bad guys, then bad guys will team up to take out the Kaiju.

Seems to be more happy and chirpy then the first

Could be. Brightly lit generally means more expensive, though (at least if you want to do it right)! We'll see how the final effects hold up.
