The inside view of a misunderstood masterpiece.
3 June 2002 | by (Naahville (needs Amtrak)) – See all my reviews

This is a very good inside look of Paul Verhoeven's (favorite director) film Starship Troopers. It gives you the real meaning of the movie. Which is the tranformation of a Soldier (Caspier Van Dien) in the world of Facisim. It also shows you how they got some of the Oscar nominated CGI effects. IT shows you how this movie was made from writing it to the last edited peice. It also shows how the stunts were made and even gos into the great score by Basil Poledouris (must buy for any music score fan). If you liked this Movie and want to see it was made I would check this out. It is the first choice on the Special features side of The Starship Trooper Special Edition DVD. Great movie, good documentary of a great (underrated) film.
