Movies »Starship Troopers

starship troopersI was thinking about summer being the time for big action blockbusters and how it would be appropriate to feature one here. I found there are not a lot out there that I like, and none that I like like Starship Troopers.

Camp and fun with its love triangle and lines like “They sucked his brains out!” and “You're some sort of big, fat, smart-bug, aren't you?” but not so much that its become a cult classic midnight movie due to its nearly 3 hour running time and political statements from its source material, Robert A. Heinlein's novel, which are cleverly displayed in propaganda videos throughout.

Casper Van Dien is adequate and overly handsome, and Little Busey is as good as a man can be who acts mostly with his gums and teeth, but Denise Richards, phew!, she could have used Top Model's Mr Jay to tell her to pretend to put a thought in her head.

On the other hand Michael Ironside is Michael Ironside and Clancy Brown is Clancy Brown, both to the nth degree here. There is also gratuitous sex, violence, nudity, Doogie Howser and Paul Verhoeven at its helm.
