Starship Troopers is a 1997 military sci-fi action film written by Edward Neumeier, but don't let the age put you off, the special effects are still incredible. The box set contains the original motion picture and the first 2 direct to video franchises in a specially designed gatefold box which reduces storage.
Starship Troopers 1 From the drumbeat and fanfare of the opening army recruitment advert, you know this is a gung ho war movie in the best Boys Own tradition. Over-the-top acting, cheesy lines, hunky guys and beautiful babes all add up to a superb 'B' Movie style escapade, but the sound, filming and directing aim high. Basically the movie follows a handful of graduates as Humanity and the 'Bugs' [giant spider like aliens] go to war against one another. Denise Richards is great as the teasing, self centred, wannabe career pilot and Casper Van Dien's Rico is a traditional American jock at the dumb end of the military yardstick. Violence is everywhere and the futuristic society is one that favours brute force. Almost the whole of the film relies on violence either High School football to full on war -it's all the same to the characters. The extras are 2 screen tests, 2 commentaries featurette, sneak peak and 5 deleted scenes. Plenty of romance, some nudity, action by the bucketful, tongue-in-cheek humour and the action scenes in the last half are excellent making this easily a ***** movie not to be missed.
Troopers 2 `hero of the federation' is not a natural sequel, being filmed on 7% of the original movies budget and went straight to DVD, so it's not surprising its not up to the standard of the original. Although the reviews pan it, I actually liked it -a lot.

Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein is one of the masterpieces of science fiction. The universe he created, the action and warfare are magnificent. The society Heinlein posits as an alternative is at least thought provoking if not much more. The Starship Troopers trilogy are films set in that universe and to a reasonable extent reflect a lot of the sentiment that Heinlein produced. Starship Troopers 1 is a great action film that introduces the war between the Federation (humanity) and the Bugs. Starship Troopers 2 is a B Movie that drags the trilogy down a little by creating what is essentially a zombie fest. Starship Troopers 3 is the cleverest of the films and brings in more of the elements that Heinlein created including the societal structure needed to win a total war and some of the technology that Heinlein described that have been so influential to sci fi in the decades since.

What the original book did not do was produce a cast of deep characters. Starship Troopers 1 goes as far as it is possible to change that approach. The bug war is a relatively distant and unheralded conflict that humanity is engaged in when Johnny Rico and his friends graduate from high school in Buenos Aires. Rico is a traditional American jock - Casper Van Dien's powerful jawline and strong physique as well as the natural tendency to think of him as stupid capture very well the uncertainties of a man who must make his way in the world having been a sports darling at school. Rico's love is for the much smarter and aloof Carmen. She is the classmate who best understands the ideals of the Federation and is the one person who signs up to the military on pure conviction.

The high school stuff is a nice way to introduce the importance of the Bug War.
