Critic Reviews of "Starship Troopers"Salon.comMay 29, 2002
Lacks the courage of the book's fascist conclusions.Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
Lacking the sophistication of the average comic book, it compensates with panoramic attack sequences, reminiscent of the Japanese swarm attacks in American war movies.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
A jaw-dropping experience, so rigorously one-dimensional and free from even the pretense of intelligence it's hard not to be astonished and even mesmerized by what is on the screen.TIME MagazineJanuary 01, 2000
Maybe the filmmakers are so lost in their slambang visual effects that they don't give a hoot about the movie's scariest implications.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The action sequences are heavily laden with special effects, but curiously joyless.Detroit NewsJanuary 01, 2000
May just be the bug movie to end all bug movies.ÜberCinéJuly 25, 2011
Massive, hilarious and thrilling. I went to lunch a few times with a girl who despised this movie. I was forced to conclude that she's not very smart.Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
Gory, scary, violent sci-fi is too intense for kids.ColeSmithey.comApril 06, 2009
"Starship Troopers" is a war satire that outshines even Kubrick's great film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb."Reel Film ReviewsAugust 11, 2008
...boasts a tongue-in-cheek, downright campy sensibility that ultimately pervades every aspect of the proceedings.Groucho ReviewsAugust 06, 2008
Insanely subversive...functions as a visually dazzling science-fiction action picture, a philosophical challenge, and a hilarious, incisive comedy. [Blu-Ray]Movie MetropolisAugust 03, 2008
Paul Verhoeven's satiric, 1997, sci-fi, war-movie romance is admittedly an acquired taste.
