I am a big fan of the original Starship Troopers movie and I've seen all the sequels and this is my favorite among all of them. Some of the other sequels felt a little weird (Hero of the Federation felt like a horror movie) but this one felt the closest in spirit to the original movie. I thought it had an interesting plot, a good cast of characters, and great action. The CG animation is first rate and having Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer back as Rico and Dizzy was great. Their scenes together gave the film some emotional impact. I only wish they were able to get Neil Patrick Harris to voice the character of Carl Jenkins -- hopefully they can get him for any future sequels.
When it comes to Star Ship Troopers I Choose to recognize the 1st film then the animated films. The 2nd film felt more like a wannabe house horror type film and I cant even begin to talk about the third in the "trilogy". If you enjoy the original StarShip Troopers film from the franchise then I recommend you give the Animated films a shot. The stories are good!
The action is back strong fighting the alien bugs. The animation is the best I've seen. The enhanced detail makes the characters look like live actors. The voices of Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores are the actors from the original Starship Troopers. This is a must have movie for fans of Starship Troopers!
The next chapter of Starship Troopers once again brings Johnny Rico back into action. The Blu-Ray quality and special animation effects were great. Bringing back Johnny Rico, Carl, Carmen and even Diz! Only drawback was the weak acting and the characters good have been better. Still great movie to watch!
Good addition to the series, I have always liked the animated additions to the series. This is no exception, although it did leave me wanting/waiting for more.
It covers the core characters from the series and touches on the odd friendship shared by them in the world full of bugs!
