On one level Starship Troopers works as an intense sci-fi/action flick with great battle scenes and spectacular special effects. But going beyond that it provides excellent commentary on fascism, power and war.

Living in a militaristic future, our heroes, high school graduates at the start of the film, feel it is their civic duty to serve. They do this not fully realizing just what ... read more

Okay, I saw this in the theater with a few friends and we certainly didn't expect to get much out of it. But, when we realized how graphic and violent, over the top and ridiculous it was, we had a good time.

Yes, it is kinda stupid at times, but if you don't expect much in terms of scintillating dialog, just stay for the parts where they blow up the bugs and stuff. You don't have ... read more

A great underrated movie

Some people love it, some people hate it. I love it. This was one of the last movies directed by Paul Verhoeven before getting kick out of Hollywood. Unfortunately, it wasn't a success and it didn't help recoverning the damages caused by 'Showgirls'. To be honest, I think it is a shame and, in my opinion, it is definitely the most underrated movie directed by Paul Verhoeven and, in fact, it is pro... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1738 movies items)

" How did a very controversial book, by Robert Heinlein get made? And get a toy line? And animated films? With it be a super violent R rated film? With some considering it a film, that glamorized fascism? When it actually, poked fun at it, and the futility of war? Is easy, to take Starship Troooers at face value, and think that it’s a special effects type film, when it’s actually a dark comedy, not unlike RoboCop, which was Paul Verhoeven? Critics were luck warm about the film, and it didn"

"19.7. Disney+ Uusintakatselu. Kunnioitin Paul Verhoevenin 85-vuotispäivää päivän perästä erittäin tarpeellisella uusinnalla. "Fasistisen maailmankuvansa" kanssa on Starship Troopersin satiiri jopa Verhoevenin mittarilla tavattoman överiä, mutta ah niin miellyttävää. Edelleen vaikea ymmärtää, miten aikanaan tämä ei auennut. Varsinkaan amerikkalaiselle yleisölle."

" Date: 7/4/2022 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-watch Note: Given that Starship Troopers is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, I felt like watching it again. Back in the late 1990s, when I was a kid, Starship Troopers was a big deal. I had the toys, watched it countless times on VHS, and even watched the short lived cartoon show on TV. In my first grade classes in late 1997, it was one of the most discussed movies. My friends and I were more interested in discussing Starship Troopers, Alien Resurre"

"8.2. DVD B-sci-fiä, teinidraamaa ja macho-öyhötystä varsin tasapainoisessa ja hyvin tunnistettavasti ohjaajansa näköisessä satiirissa. Ihastuttavan kyyninen ihmis- ja maailmankuvassaan, mutta häiritsevän hauskaa seurattavaa. Aika paljon on kyllä samaa henkeä, kuin Tri. Outolemmessä. Tuntuu kyllä käsittämättömältä, miten silmille hyökkäävä fasistinen kuvasto ja imperialismin äänekäs kritiikki ei aikoinaan ainakaan amerikkalaisille kriitikoille auennut. Luulisi vuoden 1"
