Wonderful cliche bashing anti-war film! Great fun!,
This review is from: Starship Troopers 3: Marauder [DVD]  (DVD)
When I read some of the reviews posted here I wondered if they were actually reviewing the same film that I'd seen.
Lighten up, fellas. It doesn't matter about the story (or lack of it), the design of the guns, the not too wonderful special effects, or any of the other things you've waffled on about .....this isn't suposed to be taken seriously, unless satirising every cliche from every war film you've ever seen is serious -- which I suppose in a way, it is.
The makers of Starship Troopers 3 (and the actors) have all got their tongues very firmly in their cheeks. Practically every scene is having a bash at something that deserves to be bashed, including gung-ho patriotism and "gott mit uns".
Enjoy playing "spot the cliche". Enjoy seeing the actors enjoying themselves. Remind yourself how often you've seen these scenes in "serious" war films (swop the "bugs" for Nazis, or Commies or whatever) See this as an anti-war film. Which it is. And a satire. Which it is. And good fun. Which it is.
