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 »

Ruins this franchise
1 September 2008 | by diplomizeSee all my reviews

It's extremely hard to get into this movie because it's a farce. The director obviously did not try to do this inadvertently but the silly dialogue, poor acting, cliché plot, and other crummy elements completely ruin this movie.

I'm going to list a few disappointments for fellow readers. -This movie completely copies and overuses the propaganda advertising element from the first movie. -The actors obviously had little to no preparation for playing their role. The way the hold their guns, retreat, and physical appearance shows that the actors were picked up randomly from the streets and told to act. -Inappropriate dialogue. The things the actors say in the face of death makes you want to laugh. -Inappropriate acting. The situation and the way they act are completely uncorrelated. For example, in the face of death (a bug is right in front of their faces) the actors have arguments, they start to kiss as an entire PLANET is being blown up. -A general physically threatens an unarmed superior officer.

Frankly, I'm a fan of the first movie, Starship Troopers. The second movie was a failure, so I expected this third movie to be much better. I was terribly upset when I realized they utterly butchered this movie as well. I do not recommend spending any time or money on viewing this movie. Time can be better spent watching paint dry.
