I love this film.
So colourful, so well made. But be warned - the only similarity with Heinlein's original novel is the characters' names. There were no aliens in the book. It was a story about a (human) revolution.

Simply brilliant!!
Paul Verhoeven, what a genius and not afraid to have to 'water it down' for kiddies like every other damn film it seems. This is a no holds barred blood n gutfest. My only regret was not seeing it at the cinema. It must have been great on the big screen!

Paul Verhoeven classic
The director of "Robocop" and "Total Recall" went back to Sci-Fi after the awful and excessive "Showgirls", and struck gold again with this bloody CGI extravaganza about a future war between humans and alien arachnids. The tale of how three young school friends end up fighting the war on the front-line is done in Verhoeven's typically stylish whilst explicit way, which includes some terrific satirical side-swipes, as he did with Robocop, at the future society that we all maybe headed for; its gung-ho and unashamed propaganda mechanisms, the military and its citizenship based society. It's a somewhat trashy Sci-fi story that could well have been lifted from the 1950s, but with modern CGI and a distinctive director's take and style, making it all rather good.

Wow, Starship Troopers, where do we start? Exciting, silly, sci-fi fun. Guns, blood, creatures, awesome special effects, wrapped into one old-school action shoot-em-up. Rico and the Starship Troopers for the win! **ps. there's some boob in there too! Woot!

Courageous military recruits hurl themselves into a desperate war against alien insects set on destroying mankind. They blast off for the creatures' home planet in a last-ditch attempt to save the human race from annihilation - little realising the carnage that awaits them. Sci-fi adventure from director Paul Verhoeven, starring Casper Van Dien, Denise Richards and Dina Meyer
