The lime-green violin that Ace plays the tune "Las Golondrinas"-the Shallows, is a Tucker Barrett electric violin, Jake Busey actually learned to play the violin for this movie. The song, although instrumental in this film, has lyrics. Translated to English. they are:
Listen to the swallows when I left was a simple consideration of the destiny uvo instants that better I wanted to crack to forgive him and
Return for his love but I could put myself before the coward and although sad continue on my way with a lump in the throat for the pain I went to stop in the corner from a canteen to derle unleash my sadness with tires and bottles of tequila and despite the continuous binge drinking cent in my the disastrous farewell it is because when I hear the swallows I always remember the days that there are disastrous moments in life and that piesa between mine is one of them I bring the soul over a sea of feelings all via no sicatrisan my eridas that rabio I play in the first moment the song that Bitter farewells farewell to those who love so much time I'll regret while I live It is because when I hear the swallows I always remember the days those there are disastrous moments in life and that piesa between mine is one of them.

During the "Brain Bug" sequence, Carmen is speared through the upper body by a bug, which immobilizes her. The injury is massive, in the vicinity of the clavicle, subclavian artery and subclavian vein, and through the muscles in the region of the shoulder, trapezius and pectoral area. An injury of this type would lead to massive blood loss, and very significant damage to the muscles and bones that allow movement of the arm and shoulder. However, seconds later after being released by the bug during the rescue, Carmen's bleeding has stopped, she doesn't need to cradle the arm and uses it to touch Rico without any apparent difficulty, and happily swings her arm as she exits the tunnel, holding a weapon with the same arm a few moments later. In reality an injury of this type would be completely incapacitating and the functioning of the arm and shoulder would be severely limited for some time afterwards. See more »

While some of the characters and lines in the movie were a little underdeveloped, the overriding story of the evolution of our society into an aggressive, militarist regime cannot be ignored. The action scenes were great, with flawless computer animation (how Titanic beat it for SFX I will never know) and enhancement supported by what can only be described as gore-laden prosthetics. I thought they could have left the love story out, but that's Hollywood.
Very watchable, and a nice change from the Alien movies - this is WAR, not some isolated pit-fight! I love the Alien movies, but Startship troopers just has a lot o' lead, heads, and bodies flying left, right and centre! I thought the Mobile Infantry could have used better weaponry (apparently in the novel that it's based on, the MI has powered armour with assault cannon and missile launchers etc.) to battle such a foe, but I'm just being technical.
If you want a nice beer & pretzels movie to yell and scream at, then this is it.
