5.0 out of 5 stars A low-budget classic is born May 31 2004
Format:DVD
I must say first of all that a number of the one-star reviews here seem to have been written by the same malajusted teenage troll. This critic didn't 'get' the first film, but thought it was just a big ride with explosions and giant bugs. It was a lot more than that, and this sequel is a lot more than a cheap knock-off.
Criticisms first: the over-riding sense of irony of the first film is not present here, which was a script writing decision. This film also does not match the huge action/FX scenes of the first film, a necessary result of the limited budget. As a result, this film is not like the first one. Let's acknowledge this and move on from there...
The opening and closing sequences are the least impressive parts of the movie, and it's here that the budget limitations really show. I think we can forgive this, based on the infinitesimal budget (5% of the first movie's), and the high quality of the main, middle part of the film. Once we get past the cheesy skeleton shot, this movie really comes into its own area of excellence. I agree with others here that the nudity seemed gratuitous, although in the commentary the writer, director and producer seem to agree that it fitted with the character and situation. Also, the music, while generally good, sometimes plays Heroic when it should really play Dramatic Ambivalent. This is particularly jarring during the climax of the final action scene.
Beyond these criticisms, this movie is really very good. There are a lot of characters, both low-key and creepy, but they are all well delineated, and the acting ranges from okay to excellent. The set design and cinematography are terrific, especially given the budget.

1.0 out of 5 stars A familiar name....a dissapointing sequal July 6 2004
By Lodicus
Format:DVD
The first Starship Troopers had it's flaws for sure, but was still solid, well made, and quality enough to build a cult following. But this "Screen Test" of a movie does the storyline nor concept any sense of justice. From a cast no larger than 20 total (including all extra's), to the OVER use of fog and close ups to hide the lack of sets, this movie was a dissapointment for me all across the board. The only thing that saved this movie from complete dissaster was a few of the rock solid actors that were good enough to still carry the story. The fact that they re-used an actor who's character died in the first SST blew my mind at first, but then she turned out being one of the better of the film. Not to mention, the battle scenes in the first were epic, and SST1 still holds the record for most ammunition used in a feature film...as this one, uses flashes of blue light at the end of the plastic rifles. The lack of human bodies was also depressing, 20 people does not an army make...I need extra's, nameless army peons, but for this you gotta believe these 10-15 people are it, the whole bug quarantine invasion force. Honestly, I could nitpick forever on this films flaws, but all I need to convay is that you should not purchase this movie on the quality of the first film, because even the Sci-Fi channel has higher standards than were set in this deppressing sequal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Starship Poopers June 29 2004
Format:DVD
As disappointing as the first movie was to anyone who'd read Robert Heinlein's book, this piece of dreck is insulting to both his memory and the admittedly impressive effects of the first movie. Phil Tippit is a great puppeteer and special effects wizard. His talents as a director are questionable, but BOTH movies suffer from scripts (written by the same person) who JUST DOESN'T GET IT! 'Starship Troopers' (the novel) is a classic coming of age tale. Boy becomes man. Everything else is backdrop to Little Juan Rico becoming an adult and Leader of Men. This 'sequel' is an exploitive waste of film. Phil Tippit studios must have had a lot of Bug Puppets left over after the first film, and saw a way to destroy them at a profit instead of a tax write off.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst sci fi of the year! June 24 2004
Format:DVD
If you thought it impossible to see a movie that would make B-movie actors cringe, here's the one to see. It's not an understatement to say that I could take twenty bucks and a camera and make something better than this piece of crap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste-of-time sequel... June 21 2004
Format:DVD
I'm a pretty hardcore fan of "Starship Troopers." I've read the book twice, seen the first film a dozen times, and watched the cartoon series. Now I've seen "Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation" and I must say that I was more than disappointed. The film stinks for many reasons, the biggest being its horrendously low budget. Had the filmmakers had more money, they definitely would've made a better film. But instead we're stuck with this lame, "trapped in an abandoned building" monster fest instead of the senseless killing and violence the original Paul Verhoeven film displayed. It's very obvious this film was very low-budgeted, which sounds like a mistake on the studio's part. They had their chance to make a great sequel to a very enjoyable movie and they blew it. Don't see "Starship Troopers 2." It'll be a huge let-down.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your time! June 17 2004
Format:DVD
I really wish Amazon has a zero star rating... This has to be the WORST sequel ever made. Even a sequel to Ishtar would be better. Zero plot, bottom of the barrel B-list actors (and C-list acting to boot!) and a buck-twenty budget on a set that resembles a junkyard does not make for impressive viewing. What makes matters worse they use an actress who was in the first film - whose character (the Fleet Captain) died in ST1!
Please don't buy this - even when it is going for 99c...

2.0 out of 5 stars Low budget crap cashing in on the success of part 1.
There is not even an attempt to make a good movie here. Certainly no attempt at originality, as they practically plagiarize Alien, but with bad actors and bad writing. Read more

A disappointment! A dark, dirty facsimile of the original, missing the humor and the team bonding of that first. If you are looking for a SCI FI escape,this is not the film. Read more
