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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not great, pretty much forgetable June 21 2004
Format:DVD
I was pretty disappointed in this movie for a few reasons. One is you never see the bugs in daylight, which drops a hint at the limited special effects crew who did all there work on a small soundstage. Another thing was that this flick didn't have the same tongue in cheek humor that the first one did. And lastly, Denise Richards did not return, even though she lived. Now her commanding officer died in the first one. I remember her getting cut in half by a closing door. She's returned as an Uber-lesbo Sergeant. If you're going to bring back a dead character, I would have wanted Dizz.
This movie starts out with action right from the beginning. A platoon of MI are fighting their way to a fortress through a bug army. When they get there they meet a 'murderer'. He's actually the hero of the movie, but I won't give too much away.
This time around, the bugs have a new bug. A foot-long spider that goes down your throat and possesses you. It can be passed from person to person by mouth. So you can imagine how the hot blonde who spends most of her time naked in this movie can take out everyone from private to general, (and she just about does). Some blood and guts here and there, but nothing shocking or new.
This isn't a great movie by any means, I don't even want to say it was a good movie. I'd call it a fair movie. Don't compare it to the first one though, because then you call it a lousy and disappointing movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel! May 11 2004
Format:DVD
Picking up the story from five years after the first film, a group of Troopers are cut off from extraction and make their way to a seemingly abandoned outpost to await rescue. Leaving four Troopers behind to cover their escape, they arrive to find a Colonel Dax imprisoned in an incinerator with an obvious bug battle having eradicated the rest of his men. Records state he murdered his commanding officer and the new group of Troopers initially mistrust him, but come to find he has reasons. With the arrival of the surviving group from the initial escape, those reasons seem to be re-occurring in the outpost.
Obviously, ST2 is not a kids movie-- it is kick-a** science fiction horror . True to the style seen in the original film. Lots of gore here. Bugs killing people and so on but also new even more gore stuff than in the first movie. All special effects are top-notch and two battle sequences have an epic quality to them. I do like new species of bugs - it's nice to see intergalactic beasties that aren't too derivative of the titular menace from Alien.
Yes you can see the movie was made on a lower budget than the first one, but it delivers anyway.
The story is similar to that one in Thing, but there are some interesting twists. Also I certainly applaud Director and Writer for attempting to send a message from a film within a genre that usually lacks subtext. This is an anti-war movie. Also it's nice to see strong characterization for the genre., it's good to see the cast is each given a personality. While we may not see each one fully fleshed out (it is an action movie, after all), we know they're there.
Because it's more horror than war-movie, some people will don't like it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Aliens meet Grunts in Space. July 6 2004
Format:DVD
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. If you are looking for the horror genre, such as Nightmare on Elm Street, or Friday the Thireenth, this might be a three star. Gore for the blood thirsty. Like Alien, the bugs have infiltrated.
I watched Starship Troopers 2 only once; Starship Troopers half a dozen times.
Good performances:
Brenda Strong as Sgt. Dede Rake is a real D.I.
J.P. Manoux as T/Sgt Ari Peck, his acting that makes you itch.
Ed Quinn as Corporal Joe Griff, charismatic medic
Richard Burgi - Captain Dax; probably did a good job, but reminded me too much of Richard Hatch from Survivors.

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
