Revisiting the film in 2018, Verhoeven stressed how “I decided to make a movie about fascists who aren’t aware of their fascism,” It’s worth noting that it’s still easy to misinterpret On this level, it’s a mindless blockbuster that’s easy to ignore, which is precisely the problem. A few seconds later, it's rattling the windows. Voting is violence, and those who use actual force are the only ones qualified to exercise that privilege.

The rot is slow, like the online propaganda videos that Besides, would people even care? You can watch it as an action movie, you can watch it as a war movie, you can watch it as a parody, you can watch it as a propaganda fot totalitarian regimes, and in all that fields it excells.
Sadly, the sound is awful. The image blows away the standard blu ray by leaps and bounds.
Many of ST1's innovative techniques have become routine but the story is still good, high action (especially in space) and the characters are well drawn, lots of fun. STARSHIP TROOPERS charts the lives of elite members of the Mobile Infantry, a corps of dedicated young men and women soldiers fighting side-by-side in the ultimate intergalactic war... the battle to save humankind.

Like all blu-rays when compared to watching the DVD version or an old video one watching this film is a clearer, more detailed experience and in many cases it's like looking at the film for the first time as the film stock used to transfer to Blu-Ray is usually "worked on" first to get as good a copy as possible.

Instead the result is often shock and it is quite a jarring experience at times, like the first time we saw the alien burst out of John Hurt's chest in Aliens. Forget adjusting your surround sound speakers, because you end up having to change each area, constantly. The special effects have held up surprisingly well two decades on, especially the Arachnids and gore, terrifying to this day. All that matters is that they fight, and they’ll gladly die in a war that doesn’t make sense. A great sci fi classic. Clearly Doogie Howser's finest film bar none. There's an optional 5.1 uncompressed sound option, but it's not much better. It can be watched on two levels. This was filmed on 35mm film in 1997. I love that guy Verhoeven.
Yet somehow it is still an engaging war story that grabs you and drags you along with the action. Directors commentary with the writer and director excellent into there thought process. They were killed or wounded on regular basis. Sound familiar? The movie was released in 1997. Please try againSorry, we failed to record your vote. I give 5 stars because for me the special affects were ahead of their time. Have to admit, this is first time I watched thinking 'hmm looks a little tired and dated'.
Sold my copy. In a really subtle way the subtext of the film is an allegory about fascism, with nods to the Roman Empire. Please try againSorry, we failed to record your vote.
To me, this movie is campy, cheesy, and over the top. (ala Robocop)
I've always enjoyed ST1 and this dual package was at a seriously low (used) price.
Sony once again proves they can release magnificent looking 4K UHD discs of their catalog titles.

One of the finest pieces of satirical film making ever, that had only become more relevant as the real world slowly turns into the fascistic nightmare depicted in this movie, much like Verhoevens other classic, RoboCop. The film was released directly to DVD in the U.S. on August 5, 2008.

If you're interested in a breakdown of the politics of the film, I'd recommend "The Politics of Starship Troopers" by Sargon of Akkad on YouTube. The effects even stand up to today's standards!

What a superb film!
The grain is not obtrusive as others believe it is (since they are expecting perfect digital image) so they are going to scream about what grain there is. One of the best from the 90s. Only Verhoeven could do that. Very clever, great special effects which often look like they were made yesterday and incredible music. Great upgrade over the standard blu ray. In fact, it is quite a vicious satire on militaristic states but I suspect that many viewers would miss that and simply enjoy the special effects.

A lot of the reviews here focus on technical details related to the various digital formats the film has been available in. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. newsletter This is quality masquerading as mediocre. A few of the other reviews focus on the politics of the movie as contrasted with the politics of the book. Add it to your collection before history forgets such fine film gems such as this. We don’t just cheer for the “good guys” with guns anymore, but the ones with literal superpowers, and they’ve taken over the world.
