Trivia

During the biometric scan that the seven marauders undergo, the sound effect is the same as that emitted by the Flying Machines in the original The War of the Worlds (1953). See more »

Goofs

From 21:12 to 21:18, on the far left side of the frame, the knees of a kneeling soldier on a barracks roof instantly materialize over the wall. As the scene pans up, the knees eventually end up in a proper placement. Furthermore, the actor shakes the rifle as if firing, but no muzzle-flash nor audio accompany the action. See more »

Well, not as good as the first, but much better than the second
24 June 2008 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I tell ya I was dying to see this movie when I heard it was going to be released and it is a mixed bag. The Starship Troopers universe is explored in more detail - we see more of the Federation and their behind the scenes antics plus we also get to see what Rico is up to nowadays. You can tell Casper Van Dien has aged from the first movie, but he does such a good job in his role. You can tell his character has been amongst ongoing struggles and has such a commanding presence. And yes he gets his gear off once again (phew, I was hoping). The supporting cast is OK - the Admiral is excellently bitchy and authoritative and the Pilot was very tough and yet feminine, but the rest were merely bodies to fill the screen, in my opinion. The film does touch on a bit of this and a bit of that, but just falls short of feeling substantial, what the first film achieved so successfully. The special effects are adequate for the budget and often look quite OK - there are also a few gory moments for those into exploding heads and such. Probably the most disappointing aspect was not the fact that the ending was awfully soppy, clichéd and predictably going to lend itself for a sequel, but that the Marauder element was so miniscule that if you blinked you'd miss it (relative to the remaining bulk of the film). Hopefully in the next film they push the marauders more and don't get bogged down in too much unnecessary dialogue. But overall Starship Troopers 3 is a worthy watch and a decent followup to the other films. Thankyou for coming back to the series Casper, that's all I can say :)
