There are five people in the scene where Captain Lola Beck slaps the cook. In the next shot we see six people walking. And the next shot it's five again. In fact, the last two fade into each other and it's clearly seen that the number of people is different. See more »
It's obvious to me that the makers of Starship Troopers 2 simply did not understand the original Starship Troopers movie. Starship Troopers was a great social satire, and is more relevant today than it ever was before. The makers of Starship Troopers 2 thought it was just a dumb war action flick and created their sequel based on that assumption.
But Starship Troopers was not a movie about a war; it was a movie about the society which waged this war.
The people who made Starship Trooper 3 did not make the same mistake. They understood the appeal and the message of Starship Troopers, ignored the abysmal second part, and made a true sequel, even expanding on a lot of the themes started in the original.
If you liked Starship Troopers but did not like the second part, give this one a try (and if you haven't seen part 2, simply assume that Starship Troopers 2 never happened and go straight to 3). You will not be disappointed.
