Trivia

The Marauder armored combat suits and the "Q-Bomb" (originally called the "Nova Bomb") are the main elements drawn from Robert Heinlein's original novel in this film. Many fans were disappointed that the former did not appear in the first Starship Troopers film. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where the main bug emerges and tears up the ship, Anoke's facial expression changes between cuts, from open mouthed to just staring. See more »

Quotes

Admiral Enolo Phid: The revival of religious worship here, and in the outer colonies, will not be tolerated if it leads to... sedition! Or in any way destabilizes our war effort.

A true Sequel to Starship Troopers
25 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

It's obvious to me that the makers of Starship Troopers 2 simply did not understand the original Starship Troopers movie. Starship Troopers was a great social satire, and is more relevant today than it ever was before. The makers of Starship Troopers 2 thought it was just a dumb war action flick and created their sequel based on that assumption.

But Starship Troopers was not a movie about a war; it was a movie about the society which waged this war.

The people who made Starship Trooper 3 did not make the same mistake. They understood the appeal and the message of Starship Troopers, ignored the abysmal second part, and made a true sequel, even expanding on a lot of the themes started in the original.

If you liked Starship Troopers but did not like the second part, give this one a try (and if you haven't seen part 2, simply assume that Starship Troopers 2 never happened and go straight to 3). You will not be disappointed.
