The war against the Bugs continues! A Federation Starship crash-lands on the distant Alien planet OM-1, stranding beloved leader Sky Marshal Anoke and several others, including comely but tough pilot Lola Beck. It's up to Colonel/General Johnny Rico, reluctant hero of the original Bug Invasion on Planet P, to lead a team of Troopers on a daring rescue mission.Written by
During the biometric scan that the seven marauders undergo, the sound effect is the same as that emitted by the Flying Machines in the original The War of the Worlds (1953). See more »
When the Geronimo is knocked out of warp it is shown suddenly returning to normal speeds, but the windows behind Lola still show space speeding past at warp speeds. See more »
I'm heading for the Fleet marine lander. They've got weapons, and maybe even a com that works. And it's only a hundred klicks away.
Only a hundred klicks away? We ain't got rations for that.

I am probably re-iterating the same as everyone else but yes the 1st Starship Troopers was fantastic, the 2nd awful and this is average, the only saving grace being the return of Johnny Rico (van Dein). I suppose it was too much to ask for the return of Denise Richards.
The plot, effects and acting are all pretty average. The movie also ripped off most of the first film with the TV adverts with the line (Do you want to know more) every 5 minutes, Troopers shouting It's a good day to die sir and some of the fight scenes although the cgi was not as good could have been cut directly from the original film.
However its far far far better than the second film which should have never been made. My only disappointment is that if the sequels were not going to be of the same standard as the first film, why bother making them !!!
