finally, the old starship troopers are back
19 August 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Lot of people won't understand much of this creation.. most punch lines, some small details, even some characters that seem forced into the film are from the old CGI starship troopers series. The way the characters look, react, talk, behave... the bugs, the ships, the continuum of the story... were all extrapolated from the old CGI series and has little to do with the few low budget movies. In the old CGI you can find Karl as a powerful psy-ops guy, Carmen as their dropship pilot, Rico rising as the leader of roughnecks.. working together, becoming friends...and so on. So if you watched those series, it will all make sense.. the action, the fighting, some of the lines that seem cheap and for no reason... but if you didn't, it will probably be a nonsense.
