The background of all this is one of the most openly satirical films of a director who has never lost his sense of humor. [Full review in Spanish]

One of the very best satires of the 1990s, if not beyond.

It's still a dumb movie with pretty, wooden actors, but 20 years on Starship Troopers has more ambition than it was given credit for.

In its early scenes, 'Troopers 'is basically a goofy high school movie, complete with love triangles, a big game, and a school dance (and sex) after. Once they've begun infantry training, the flexing of machismo so over the top, it can only be satire.

Massive, hilarious and thrilling. I went to lunch a few times with a girl who despised this movie. I was forced to conclude that she's not very smart.

Gory, scary, violent sci-fi is too intense for kids.

"Starship Troopers" is a war satire that outshines even Kubrick's great film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb."

...boasts a tongue-in-cheek, downright campy sensibility that ultimately pervades every aspect of the proceedings.

Insanely subversive...functions as a visually dazzling science-fiction action picture, a philosophical challenge, and a hilarious, incisive comedy. [Blu-Ray]

Paul Verhoeven's satiric, 1997, sci-fi, war-movie romance is admittedly an acquired taste.

Are these ever mean bugs!

More effective as a satire than as an action extravaganza.

Utter stupidities and other scientific impossibilities litter the script like trooper body parts . . . [yet] the film does something right

What galls me is the film's marketing, moral and ideological cynicism.

Lacks the courage of the book's fascist conclusions.

Cut Paul Verhoeven some slack!
