  • The film's special effects are astonishing, but the most notable and unexpected thing is its tone. show more

  • This twisted space opera serves up carcasses in six-digit figures but is foremost a sendup for the ages. show more

  • Jingoistic politics are not proper or prudent in the pluralistic human society of the 1990s. It's much easier to assuage these baser urges by facing a real nonhuman enemy that just wants to kill you. War is gore. You or them. That message is the real strength of "Starship Troopers," although many may find it morally flawed. No matter, this is powerful entertainment that appeals to our most basic instincts. show more
