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.
February 27, 2001
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.
January 1, 2000
This is powerful entertainment that appeals to our most basic instincts.

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

If Showgirls represented Verhoeven's bid to become Hollywood's most shameless vulgarian, that sound you hear in Starship Troopers is the other shoe dropping.
January 1, 2000
Not the return to form for Verhoeven many have called it -- in the end, it is just a step in the right direction.

rship Troopers its moments, and it's certainly not stupid. But there are only so many places the movie can go without tipping its hand, and Verhoeven seems dead set against allowing his film to consciously acknowledge its own subtext.
January 1, 2000
Maybe the filmmakers are so lost in their slambang visual effects that they don't give a hoot about the movie's scariest implications.

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.
January 1, 2000
This flick wallows in just about every moth-ridden cliche known to the film industry and relies almost entirely on naked teenage girls and recycled special effects for what it deems excitement.

The acting by all concerned makes the cast of 'Melrose Place' look like the Royal Shakespeare Company, as statuesque model-types bark out lines like 'Everyone fights, no one quits!' and 'Kill 'em! Kill 'em all!' with clueless conviction.
January 1, 2000
Director Paul Verhoeven is back in his subversively nimble RoboCop groove with the uproariously cheeky Starship Troopers.
January 1, 2000
Terrific entertainment.
January 1, 2000
Paul Verhoeven is exactly the wrong man to have made Starship Troopers.
January 1, 2000
In the hands of Verhoeven, the mammoth sci-fi battle flick is one of the most astonishingly bad films ever made, a monument to inept filmmaking on a colossal scale.
January 1, 2000
A nonstop splatterfest so devoid of taste and logic that it makes even the most brainless summer blockbusters look intelligent.
