Starship Troopers 3: Marauder Reviews
It has solid plot ideas and carries the style of the first movie but where the first film succeeded was the intimate point of view of "Rico's adventure" and this film completely ignores that.
Instead we get a series of events crudely strewn together, cheesy bullshit elite-marauder suits fighting hordes of aliens in a battle royale of sub-par special effects and an entire cast of characters you care little to nothing about.
Anyway Enjoy the Film.
Pvt. Slug Skinner: Yes sir.
Johnny Rico: Good. Give us a hand. Pick up that arm and find out who it belongs to.
Pvt. Slug Skinner: Yes sir!
Before repeating how terrible this movie is, it is important to note that it maintains the tone of the first film in terms of being somewhat satirical and it does have the return of Johnny Rico. Now that that's out of the way, this movie is terrible.
Bull Brittles: He thinks God is a Bug?
Lola Beck: He's got religion. Their religion.
Holly Little: Bug religion?
Bull Brittles: That's crazy.
Holly Little: That's blasphemy!
Bull Brittles: What do we do now?
Holly Little: Maybe we should kill him.
Lola Beck: Why, because he's crazy? Or he believes in God like you?
Holly Little: It's the wrong God!
All the dark black satire is back and would make Verhoeven proud as its very good. The federation ponce around in there Nazi-like uniforms arresting people for speaking out against the federation and then hanging them haha
troopers are killed of in gruesome ways and basically drop like flies all over the shop yet the officers dont really care haha its all about the FEDERATION SOLDIER and getting the bugs. This is good stuff for a straight to DVD release, the effects are kinda computer gamey and the acting is hammy but it still looks nice, the bugs do their job well and look correct to the original and the communist style news reels swamp the film in an amusing way.
Its very alike the original and had it been handled abit better,alittle more backing and cash, It could maybe have been a proper cinema release, shame really.
Worth the watch people :)
These movies in general are kinda ridiculous. In the future, they have all this technology to fly across the solar system, yet they fight endless legions of giant killer insects on alien planets with...infantry holding machine guns?!? WTF. We don't even fight wars like that here hardly anymore. They would use star ships and do missile attacks, or have giant tanks with huge weapons. At the very least, give them ginormous guns that actually kill stuff, instead of a weapon that takes 5000 rounds of bullets to finally stop ONE bug. Anyways, in this one at the end the great novel idea is to have the soldiers in mechwarrior suits that finally get the job done. Good job, military scientists.
It probably has alot to do with the fact I loved the first, liked the second and think Marnette Patterson is really hot so don't attack me if you see it and hate it.
