Pacific Rim is a good movie. A really, really fucking good movie. Whatever you thought of it, it is that and so much more. Hell, it even made me tear up during a certain father-son moment that I will not discuss any further. But for all of that, that’s not what stuck with me the most about it. That’s not what made this movie unique when so many fail. To explain what made it so good, and so cool, I first have to explain what it means to be an Infantryman.
