About the Movie

From the bridge of the Fleet Battlestation Ticonderoga, with its sweeping galactic views, to the desolate terrain of planet Klendathu, teeming with shrieking, fire-spitting, brain-sucking special effects creatures, acclaimed director Paul Verhoeven crafts a dazzling epic based on Robert A. Heinlein's classic Sci-Fi adventure. Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer, Denise Richards, Jake Busey, Neil Patrick Harris, Patrick Muldoon, and Michael Ironside star as the courageous soldiers who travel to the distant and desolate Klendathu system for the ultimate showdown between the species.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: As written by Ed Neumeier, who also wrote Verhoeven's much tighter Robocop, Starship Troopers never gets over its 180-degree swivel from teen-age love story to murderous destruction. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Director Paul Verhoeven is back in his subversively nimble RoboCop groove with the uproariously cheeky Starship Troopers. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jan 9, 2018

Fresh: 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. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 28, 2006

Fresh: Manages to be both fun and shocking -- sometimes in the same shot. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 7, 2001

So Sick!!

This is such a bomb movie and its awesome that itunes has this available to buy. Anyone whos intersested in awesome action movies, this is it! Considering how old this is now, it has sick special effects. Don't think of maybe getting this, just go ahead and grab it, totally worth every penny!!

The Book Is Better (Much)

What a disappointment! Having been a fan of the book for years, I was anxious to see it brought to life on the screen. The book is a fascinating look at the concepts of civic duty, military service, and sacrifice. The only concept the movie embraced was that of sacrifice – sacrifice of any attempt to be deeper than a cheap slasher/skin flick. As a sci-fi shoot-‘em-up, it is excruciatingly average. Don’t waste your time or money – read the book.


the best movie that has to do with militairy and war and it is the so awsome i watch over and over again
