When the last alien gets killed by tail rotor of the chopper near the end of the film, it's clearly visible all of the blood and guts of the alien splattered over the tail of the chopper. After the chopper's landing, it's all gone. See more »
So if the two of you are being shot at, which bullet do I take?
Why you must try for both, of course.

This was a decent sci-fi flick. Good performances by Julie Warner and Eric Thal, and of course there's no role that Donald Sutherland can't pull off. Alien effects were revoltingly good. OK, it's not completely true to Heinlein's magnificent novel. Hollywood has a formula, (the happy ending, the obligatory love interest of one or more of the stars, etc.) and any deviation from it is exceedingly rare. That's why foreign films are good, because they are not bound by the formula. I've noticed that great sci-fi movies are almost always originally written for the screen, rather than adapted from books. Books are always better than movies, but science fiction seems to be particularly so.
