    Starship Troopers 3! *SPOILERS!*

    Just finished watching this.

    PROS: Gratutitious voilence, much like the original. For the older guys, it seems that the human brain can't really handle it when they "turn it up to 11"

    Power suits are awesome! so happy to see those finally in the storyline

    Acting and casper van dien were much MUCH better than that other pos known as ST2... (i will never mention it again)

    WAY over-hammed acting was fun to see again. The second movie (oh god im so sorry) tried too hard to be satirical, but this one at least pulled itself back in line with the rough feel of the first movie.

    Infomercials of doom. FEEL LIKE MORE INFORMATION? CLICK HERE! *in small print* "by clicking the below button you agree to to a complete waiver of all your civil rights and become property of the federation"
    And of course everyones favourite part of the first movie is back, the stripping scene! always great to see good looking men and women strip bare because "the suits dont like clothes." Maybe it gives them gas, or a rash or something...

    CONS:
    The rifles looked comicly oversized, to the point where some of the people carrying them were smaller than the rifle itself. No explination as to why they went back to the moritas after having laser rifles in that other.. thing..

    The FX was a little dodgey, but in it's defence this movie did not have the first one's Budget. Still good though, and i loved how it went cgi type cartoon when the suits came out to play

    transformer beast war scorpion thing of death...

    Psychic Bugbrain sexual connection.... *eewwwwww!*

    in short, not a bad movie overall. Not the first, but better than the second and worth the watch at least once

    The second movie absolutely sucked IMO. I love the first one!

    The first one was pretty cool
    i havent seen the second but from what i heard i havent missed much.
    a third might be nice if its one right. i mean alot of people still know the name starship troopers, so a third one might reel in some cash.
    but still only if its done right

    The First is still the best out of the three. The second one was just a waste of Money to make, I reckon even I could have done a better Job!. In the third movie that Sky Marshall character was just....off. He sings on TV? come on people!! a Character with such rank, you would have thought he would have more self respect than that!. In all it was a good movie not great, but good. I won't buy it on Blu-Ray.

    But the book is still way better

    The first one was and is a good flick to watch every once and a while. The second one is... maybe worthwhile as a coaster or to level out that short leg of your workbench.

    I'm half interested in this third one just because. I may have to rent it or borrow it at some point.

    Hey guys and gals,
    i just finished the third and was extremely dissappointed. It has a bad storyline, corny acting, and the worst song ever!! I thought i was spared from ever hearing the sky marshal song again, until the credits started rolling. What happened to Paul Verhoven?...He made a lot of great movies like Robocop. This ruined the franchise for me.
    Did anyone catch what happened to Lamb the red head? did they really hang her?...because if they did, that's messed up.
    Part II was actually enjoyable for me. it was different feel from the first but great storyline.
