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.

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!

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

It's fun and empty but so much less vacuous than Men In Black.

Repulsively thrilling and often downright hilarious.

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.

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.

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

Though the movie's internal logic is a bit shaky (machine guns are the futuristic weapons for exterminating giant bugs), this mammoth production is the most satisfying adventure film of the year.
