Trivia

Goofs

When Henry Varro's service record is shown, his Blood Type is listed as "B" without a + or - to identify the Rh factor. This is important for blood typing and cross-matching. In combat, quickly knowing blood type aids in transfusions, which is why it's always on your dog tags and in service records. See more »

Fun to watch
10 August 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I loved the first movie (directed by Verhoeven). With the young cast at that time.

They took all the elements of the first movie, and made it a very good animated feature ! Hope this will reboot the franchise in a good way (forgetting the sequels and the bad animated series).

But it is like entering in a big video game demo with non-stop action scenes.

Very entertaining, popcorn in a bucket, and sit tight to watch it with friends. NOTE: not really for kids, because there are some nudity, violence and gore scenes.
