A black op has gone terribly wrong. Now, Captain Carmen Ibanez and a hardcore trooper famed as Major Henry "Hero" Varro must lead a team of battle-weary troopers to find the missing ship and discover what went wrong.
Mysterious monstrous alien creatures attack Earth's colonies. This six-part OVA focuses on Juan "Johnnie" Rico who joins the army because of Carmen, a girl he likes, his days in boot camps, his losses and Earth's first counterattack.

'Alpha' team landed without much resistance from the bugs, after they rendezvous with what's left of Fort Casey's troopers, LTA Daugherty then decided to hold till the John A. Warden evacuates while the Alesia stands by for immediate evacuation.Written by
The film is much darker in tone than the original film, this is because the producers wanted a film that felt closer to the darker tone of the original novel than the satiric feel of the movie. See more »
Early in when Daugherty is looking at Hero's service record on the terminal it shows his birthplace as Brooklyn, NY. Brooklyn is misspelled Brooklin. See more »

the original Starship trooper though never achieve legendary status like Aliens or Predator, still a very good enjoyable movie.
And if you like the original, You will definitely enjoy this one too. Though the Invasion is Animation, the style is photo realistic like FF the spirit within, Resident evil degeneration and so on.
But despise being Animation, Its have nice suspense, and action. and like the original have lots Blood and gore. The Equipment and Ships were rendered very good. even better models compare to originals.
The Troopers suit, seems try to joining the original movie to the novel one. which Mechanized Troopers rather than Regular Rifleman like the one we saw on Original movie. Thumbs up for the well animated and models of the Power suit used by the troopers.
However, The camera angle and Music can not match the quality of the special effect, and animation. There are few shoots that not quite good, and the camera angle is no special - despite being animated movie. camera shoots can be more dynamic. The music, well.... just mediocre. its not good enough to Follow the movie pace, rather FLAT. sound effect also sub par though its good enoughs on several occasion .
In the end, its an enjoyable movie like predecessor (sorry ST2 and ST3 you both not counted as enjoyable). And Im looking forward for possible sequel.
