In the near future, the global environment will gradually deteriorate. The mysterious alien colonists sent huge, ruthless, swift, and poisonous monsters to the earth one after another through the wormhole “gap” at the bottom of the ocean, and carried out their colonization and destruction plan in an orderly manner. To this end, mankind joined forces to create the “Jaeger Project” to create mecha fighters comparable in size to monsters to fight against. However, as the monsters evolved gradually, the mecha fighters were completely defeated, and politicians from various countries tried to build a “wall of life” that was biased towards defense. In order to block the footsteps of the invaders, but soon encountered setbacks. At this critical juncture, General Steck Pantecost (Idris Elba Idris Elba), who is still secretly advancing the “Jaeger Project”, retrieves the “Dangerous Wanderers” who suffered a major blow five years ago. (played by Charlie Hunnam), and through strict selection, he chose a new partner Asako Mori (played by Rinko Kikuchi). The resurrected “Wanderer” is about to face the more powerful monster invaders with the other three remaining mecha fighters, while looking for a good opportunity to completely wipe out the enemy.
On the boundless sea, battles to defend human beings have started one after another…
