Starship Troopers


Dir. Paul Verhoeven (1997).
This adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein’s novel redoes World War II as a fast-paced and often funny sci-fi spectacle, but this time we’re the bad guys, on the side of a fascist utopia fighting monstrous and lethal giant space insects. Battle scenes are impressive, full of taut, visceral thrills.
