Decent enough film which could have been a masterpiece with some minor changes. Nothing really stands out that much, it isn't any where near "Aliens" caliber, and the cast are somewhat obnoxious.

Despite some interesting concepts and fearsome villains (the bug aliens are thoroughly nasty), this film feels exploitive at times (yes, shower scene, I'm talking about you), and cheesy at others. It has the framework for a special sci-fi film, but probably needed a better director (Verhoeven is hit and miss, at best.)

Our Daily Free Stream: Paul Verhoeven - Starship Troopers. Paul Verhoeven verfilmte zuletzt Elle nach Philippe Djian. Zurück im europäischen Arthaus Kino! Sein Höhepunkt in Hollywood aber war Starship Troopers! - Ehre, wem Ehre gebürt: Starship Troopers ist der gewalttätigste Film für Kids, der je gemacht wurde! Das Geschehen ist genau abgestimmt auf die Vorlieben Elfjähriger und genau so sind die Romane von Robert A. Heinlein auf denen Paul Verhoevens Film beruht. Wir schreiben den Beginn des nächsten Milleniums (also unseres "Zeitalters"). Die Erdbevölkerung befindet sich im Krieg mit Rieseninsekten, die sich im All ausbreiten. Wir werden kolonialisiert und kämpfen ums Überleben. Wohlbemerkt: Hoch entwickelt sind diese Käfer nicht, weder in der Lage, eigene Städte zu errichten...

Funny, probably not on purpose.

So, I'll try and keep this brief, I really have no idea what I just saw. Yea, it was a sci-fi flick about the near future where bugs are the world's greatest enemy, so basically Ender's Game. But, first off, what wast he budget for this thing? This film looked like they dropped millions on the bugs, then said, "Oh, shit, we're broke." I'm not looking for Academy Award worthy acting, but this was some of the flimsiest that I've ever seen, I kept waiting for Denise Richards to yell, "LINE?" There were numerous scenes that rated at least a 7 on the unintentional comedy scale, and BTW, Denise Richards's character should be dead, we saw a fireball engulf the cockpit of her shuttle.

I know it sounds like I'm completely bashing this film, and it wasn't great, but it was entertaining, and ...

"Starship Troopers" by Yojimbo

A group of friends join up to fight for the Federation against an alien insect race. Starship Troopers is classic comedy. Unfortunately, the sly wit Verhoeven employs in this veiled parody of US militarism passed by unnoticed to the majority and it is pretty obvious that even the catalogue model cast weren't even let in on the joke; they earnestly go through all the cliches of college love triangle, military bootcamp (hilariously overseen by Clancy "MEDIC!" Brown) and on to B-Movie style interplanetary war with totally straight faces. Which makes it even funnier! The constant gore is laid on so thick that by the end it's just Itchy & Scratchy silly (my favourites are the flying bug decapitations!) and by the end you're feeling sorry for the bugs suffering at the hands of a Gestapo trenchc...
