Lacks the courage of the book's fascist conclusions.

Lacking the sophistication of the average comic book, it compensates with panoramic attack sequences, reminiscent of the Japanese swarm attacks in American war movies.

A jaw-dropping experience, so rigorously one-dimensional and free from even the pretense of intelligence it's hard not to be astonished and even mesmerized by what is on the screen.

Manages to be both fun and shocking -- sometimes in the same shot.

As written by Ed Neumeier, who also wrote Verhoeven's much tighter Robocop, Starship Troopers never gets over its 180-degree swivel from teen-age love story to murderous destruction.

Maybe the filmmakers are so lost in their slambang visual effects that they don't give a hoot about the movie's scariest implications.

Director Paul Verhoeven is back in his subversively nimble RoboCop groove with the uproariously cheeky Starship Troopers.

The action sequences are heavily laden with special effects, but curiously joyless.
