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.

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

It's a sci-fi gorefest, and a fun one at that.

It is pure Verhoeven -- broad, brash and ultraviolent, and all up there on the screen.

Intellectually, I can't really condone that message, but I have to admit that this will be a guilty pleasure of mine for years to come.

The battle scenes are phenomenal, both for the realistic and clever special effects and for the humor.

Nobody objects to a simple gross-out proposition on the big screen. But here too, Starship Troopers doesn't quite make it.

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.
January 1, 2000
It's a cynical wasteland from beginning to end.
January 1, 2000
The enjoyment you get from watching Starship Troopers is similar to the pleasure felt from a loud 'ZAP' from a bug zapper. And about as deep.
January 1, 2000
May just be the bug movie to end all bug movies.

The most audacious pop-cultural amalgam since Star Wars.
