Product Description

In the first and finest RoboCop movie, director Paul Verhoeven combined near-future science fiction with a keen sense of social satire--not to mention enough high-velocity violence to satisfy even the most voracious bloodlust. In Starship Troopers, Verhoeven and RoboCop cowriter Ed Neumeier take inspired cues from Robert Heinlein's classic sci-fi novel to create a special-effects extravaganza that functions on multiple levels of entertainment. The film might be called "Melrose Place in Space," with its youthful cast of handsome guys and gorgeous women who look like they've been recruited (and in some cases they were) from the cast of Beverly Hills 90210. Viewers might focus on the incredible, graphically intense action sequences (definitely not for children) in which heavily armed forces from Earth go to off-world battle against vast hordes of alien "bugs" bent on planetary conquest. The attacking bugs are marvels of state-of-the-art special-effects technology, and the space battles are nothing short of spectacular. But Starship Troopers is more than a showcase for high-tech hardware and gigantic, flesh-ripping insects. Recalling his childhood in Holland during the Nazi occupation, Verhoeven turns this epic adventure into a scathingly funny satire of fascist propaganda, emphasizing Heinlein's underlying warning against the hazards of military conformity and the sickening realities of war. It's an action-packed joy ride if that's all you're looking for, but Verhoeven has a provocative agenda that makes Starship Troopers as smart as it is exciting. The DVD includes an above-average commentary by the director and Neumeier, several deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes documentary and promotional featurette, cast bios, production notes, and more. --Jeff Shannon

By Andre Farant TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Starship Troopers is a strong action movie, a near-classic sci-fi movie, and an absolutely hilarious critique of war movies and war propaganda.

On the surface, Starship Troopers appears to be an ultra-simplistic sci-fi war movie in which heavily-armed space soldiers battle giant monsters. Delve a little deeper, though, and notice that so many of the scenes in this movie are recreations of old WW2 and Viet-Nam era propaganda taken to the extreme. Just as war propaganda (on both sides, mind you) always seeks to dehumanze the enemy, depicting them as savages or barbarians or simply "godless," here, the enemy actually isn't human. It is the ultimate "other," a monster, an animal, a BUG.

The training scenes are riddled with the clichees of war movie training scenes. But the overuse of clichees are not, here, the signs of bad screewriting, but an attempt to hilight and ridicule these tropes while forcing us to admit that, really, we kind of enjoy them.

Anyway, if you haven't seen Starship Troopers or have but think it silly or stupid, watch it (again) and pick out all those scenes that make light of classic war movies and old (and not so old)-fashioned war propaganda.

It's a fun, bloody, thrilling, and hilariously clever film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read this if you can't load on your Blu Ray May 12 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I ordered, and initially couldn't get it to run. A loading bar came up and everything seemed to stop after that. In the back of my Blu Ray player is a USB port. Apparently this title needs addional memory to initiate the loading program (for whatever reason). I plugged in a USB stick I happen to have lying around, and all is fine

Apparently this is a problem with Sony titles and Blu Ray

Other devices such as PlayStation may already have this addtional memeory, so might be okay

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Movie for Science Fiction Oct. 4 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is an entertaining tongue in cheek story about soldiers and society in the future...

A very good, enjoyable movie.

But it can get a bit "gory" at parts... Adults might want to give it a preview before letting the kids watch...

One of my favorites

I would believe that the filmmakers reacted to Robert A. Heinlein's sometimes almost jingoistic take on the militartistic preservation of "liberty" in creating this campy send-up of ultrapatriotism of days gone by (even though it is set in the future). But they forgot, or did not care, about the great service RAH did for the genre -- especially for the YA set in the 1950s and 1960s and did a greatly disrespectful disservice to the author's memory by using his title. I hope his family was compensated. I liked this film. It's fun. But the movie's makers could have done just as well without using Heinlein's name and booktitle -- considering that the movie and book do not much resemble each other.

1.0 out of 5 stars this disc doesn't work AT ALL!!!!!!!!! July 9 2012
By roger
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This disc doesn't work at all except a pink loading bar at the beginning. I tried to plug in an USB disk to my blu-ray player like someone said above. But it still doesn't work. Nothing at all on the screen. I can say it is definitely this disc's problem coz my blu-ray player played over 100 discs and this situation never happens.
