5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, stunning and breathtaking visuals 1 Sep 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I put this on pre-order when i watched the little trailer, something I never do with blu ray titles, because the clip looked amazing visually and because I love good CGI. The clip looked to be just like very high quality cut scenes in good production value Video Games. When I started watching the actual movie I found I had some small criticisms such as the character rendering, lip sync, texturing and colours could have done with some improvement whereas all the solid objects etc were beautifully done....

I also started to think oh well, great looking as it is this is going to be another cliched Starship Trooper movie, same old formula as the others...yawn...

Actually nothing to fear...at times breathtakingly beautiful and full of stunning, crisp, clear and colourful detail on my 1080p 50 inch plasma this is a stunning movie and even a good little story. I really found myself thoroughly enjoying this and worth every penny of the £15 I spent. Even got emotionally attached to some of the characters...Yes the original main trio are all here as well as some new additions.

If you like high quality CGI movies and enjoyed the Resident Evil Movies and The Final Fantasy Movies you have to have this movie in your collection....The quality of the artwork and rendering seemed to improve as the movie went on as if the team working on this became more flourished and practiced as they went along.....

If I'm honest I believe this is THE best quality CGI I have ever seen, and a whole movies worth....Good Job Stage 6 Films.

Overall verdict, absolutely loved it!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but so much more could have been done 10 Sep 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
As a certain Sarah Brightman (with Hot Gossip) once sang, I lost my heart to a Starship Trooper, so when I have the chance to view the latest offering in the franchise I jumped at the chance. Now whilst this does feature characters from the original, the viewer is treated to a full computer graphic spectacular which whilst entertaining, is definitely showing as something a little dated with negligible plot and sadly very little acting to help bring the film over.

Add to this an over excessive use of gratuitous boob shots, some sadly lamentable death sequences as well as a plot that had quite a few huge holes in it and all in this could have been so much better.

Don't get me wrong it was watchable and it did fill a gap in my schedule but to be blunt, I was expecting something so much more, especially when you have so many options available to help not only expand their dark future but also when other franchises have delved into Space Hulks that can scare without ever really getting into showing what's going on.

All in it was OK but personally I'd have had a few more twists and turns setting it more on the hulk with danger round every corner be it from the Bugs or perhaps even other space dangers which could have made this not only more atmospheric but also given it a greater grounding as well as pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Repaired the damage done by the second. 21 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Only just watched this. The first film of the series was out of this world. The second just completely destroyed all the hard work done on the first. The third film wasn't too bad but just couldn't bring the series back from the gutter.

Starship Troopers Invasion was a fantastic film. Completely done in CGI which I absolutely enjoyed. It brought back RICO, CARMEN and CARL. The story was well structured and thought up.

If you're a Starship Troopers fan then this film is definitely for you and worth watching. The action was faultless in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected 30 Dec 2012
By Mr. D. Swan VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
A completely CGI'd offering here with no real actors and that's part of the problem.
Starship Troopers Invasion tells the story of a giant Brain bug taking over a Starship and a highly armed group of Troopers trying to wrest control of the ship and save themselves, there's some twists and turns, some old friends turning up including Johnny Rico and a finale on Earth. Thankfully it's pretty good, lots of action, a bit of characterization, the script doesn't need to be great because it's all about killing bugs, and unfortunately a lot of the bug killing seems to take part in identical looking corridors with Troopers just blasting away and you sometimes get the feeling your actually watching an intro to a PS2 video game. I say PS2 because that's gives you a sense of the main problem with this film, Although most of the CGI is good the characters look like they come from early 2000's PS2 games, simply no where near good enough to have in a film. There very Japanese looking in style and the shape, rigging and facial animation are just way too sub standard for today's audience. If I'd seen this in 1999 I would have thought it was Ok, with much higher quality characters or real actors this could have been a 4 star film but it's hard to empathize with such unrealistic stilted characters.
It's a pity, this could have been a worthy addition to the list of Troopers films but the shoddy CGI cast take away from the enjoyable story and action.
