Storyline

We are sent back to the battlefield, as the Federation's best Mobile Infantry unit are slowly being overpowered by the killer bugs. They are light years from the nearest reinforcements and are trapped on a remote outpost. They set up protection around the post, keeping all the bugs waiting for them to leave. But now the enemy is in the outpost, in a way which they would have never thought of. Written by Film_Fan

Trivia

The recruiting Sergeant at the end of the film, seen tapping a cigarette on his mechanical right arm and saying "Hurry up, spud - we need more meat for the grinder." is wearing a name patch of "Davison". See more »

Goofs

The alien "bugs" are often referred to as arachnids; starting with the scrolling updates at the beginning of the film. The bugs in the movie only have 4 legs; even if you counted the 2 smaller "stabbing pincers" that would give them 6 total. All arachnids have 8 legs. See more »

Hmmmm didn't she die in the first one?
19 December 2004 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Firstly I have to make something clear I loved the first movie,it was a sci-fi masterpiece.

This sequel does something no other sequel has ever attempted to do......and thats were it all went wrong,the plot has absolutely nothing to do with its predecessor it stumbles along at a very slow speed which becomes highly annoying due to the incredibly bad script which is badly performed by very poor actors who included BRENDA STRONG! the reason i have placed an exclamation mark after her name is due to the fact that she died in the first film and played a completely different character.One thing this film is said too have going for it is the high level of quality CG effects but if you actually watch the first film you will notice that every good CG moment is repasted into this production and changed in no way whatsoever.

OK lets talk about the directing,actually lets not because in my view this director seemed like he was trying to make a soft corr porno movie and not the sci-fi action film that most had hoped for,why do i say this you?well when you take in all the unnecessary nudity and cheesy as sin sexual innuendos it seems that the alien bugs have no interest anymore in getting into our galaxy and destroying our planet they seem too have more interest in getting into the Troopers pants.

This film supposedly cost $3,000,000,Hmmmmmmmm it would seem to my that Glenn S.Gainor should learn to spend his money more wisely
