The bugs are back on DVD with Columbia TriStar's Special Edition of Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation. The straight-to-video sequel is presented with an anamorphic 1.79:1 widescreen picture and both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS audio tracks. Extras include a commentary from a team that goes all the way back to the days of Robocop: director Phil Tippet, producer Jon Davison, and writer Ed Neumeier. Two featurettes are also included, "Inside the Federation" and "From Green Screen to Silver Screen." The first is a 30-minute look behind-the-scenes, the second a walk through each step of the visualization process behind the film's effects. Rounding out the disc is a photo gallery and a selection of trailers. This is a solid release for fans of the series and should prove a lot to anyone who doubted first-time director Tippet's abilities behind the camera.

Synopsis

Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation
Humanity's war against the bugs continues in this sequel to Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi soap opera epic, Starship Troopers. This time, when a squad of troopers is stranded on a bug-infested planet, their only hope for survival lies in an abandoned outpost, where things take a turn for the worse. A lone survivor by the name of Captain Dax (Richard Burgi) awaits them there, locked away for killing his crazed commanding officer. When a group of strangers arrives at the base, the squad is faced with a new threat from their alien enemy that will pit every surviving human against each other. With an army of bugs surrounding the compound and mysterious internal forces plotting against the group, it's up to Dax and Pvt. Lei Sahara (Colleen Porch) to try and hold out before the rescue team arrives. Effects maestro Phil Tippett (Star Wars, Jurassic Park) makes his directing debut in this made-for-cable movie that features a script by the series' original scribe, Edward Neumeier. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
