We are sent back to the battlefield, as the Federation's best Mobile Infantry unit are slowly being overpowered by the killer bugs. They are light years from the nearest reinforcements and are trapped on a remote outpost. They set up protection around the post, keeping all the bugs waiting for them to leave. But now the enemy is in the outpost, in a way which they would have never thought of.Written by
(around 59 min) a character is shuffling some playing cards, and then holds them in his left hand, revealing the Ace of Spades at the bottom of the deck. He then picks up a lighter in his right hand and lights a cigarette. There is a cut to a different angle as he puts the lighter down. In that shot the Ace of Clubs is at the bottom of the deck.

Little budgeted second part with television main actors and unknown support cast
The movie concerns about a team of soldiers who are surrounded in a shelter by an army of bugs formed by thousands of giant insects . The group is led by the hunk starring , Richard Burgi , along with Sandrine Holt , Porch , Lawrence Monoson and a general , Ed Lauter . But some officers become disenfranchised and feel betrayed by their own military . They'll take on too much dangers . The confrontation will be terrifying and lethal . The fighting will be terrible . The final showdown between the soldiers and contenders is breathtaking .
The film mingles shootouts , emotions , violence , struggles and a little bit of gore . This follow-up is made for 5% of the cost of Starship Troopers (1997) and shot in just 26 days . From the beginning to finish the warlike action is continued . First-rate special effects , they are made by means of computer generator by Eric Leven though there are Animatronics , as well . With the exception of stock footage used for the Fed-Net opening , no visual effects shots were recycled from the previous film ; they were all newly created by Tippett Studio . However , the storm clouds are actually toilet paper tubes with cotton stuck to them , slowly rolled forward , they were darkened and layered digitally.
Phil Tippet's direction (he created FX of the first part) is average . The movie is a bit boring , because developing itself in locked and shut scenarios . The cast is mostly formed by secondary actors and little known ; thus the starring , Richard Burgi , has appeared in several television series , only Ed Lauter has been acting in many films , but as support cast . The ¨Starship troopers I¨ by Paul Verhooven was much better with lots of action , tongue-in-cheek , irony and more spectacular , this second part is cold , tiring and claustrophobic , though there are enough thrills and action . The picture will appeal to commandos movies buffs and science fiction fans . Rating : Average but entertaining .
