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.

More effective as a satire than as an action extravaganza.

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.

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.

Enjoyable despite the little redemption it offers humankind, Troopers fits every Hollywood convention while simultaneously breaking each one.

It's not rocket science, but its cynicism is simultaneously smarmy and smart, exacting a cost for any pleasure you may take in its nasty-ass violence.

Just enjoy the fun of watching Neil Patrick Harris in his audition for Apt Pupil and roll with it, baby.
