All the symbolism. Great flick. I watch it a couple of times a year.
An underrated satire that deserves all of the praise it gets!
It’s just rad man. Like military movies? Like sci-fi? No? Too bad, watch this and enjoy it.
A sci-fi classic that deserves its place at the top of alien-fighting B-movies. Surprisingly good effects for the time.
Often called a bastardization of Heinlein’s classic novel, this film succeeds when viewed as a satire of the fascist undertones of the book.
Only thing holding this movie back from B Perfection is the fact there are no ugly people at any point on the screen. Everyone is a 7 above
Soaked in hilariously dark fascist satire, subtext and deeper themes throughout, this macho space bug war film has more than meets the eye
I want to do my part!!! And my part is saying that this film is quite a good satire on what society could be like and a decent action film
This is and probably always will be the hardest and coolest movie in the the history of the human race. Man I hate aliens.
Much went over my head as a teen (fascist overtones, cheesy war propaganda) but this remains a gory sci-fi classic. Impressive VFX for 1997
Set in the future, the story follows a young soldier named Johnny Rico and his exploits in the Mobile Infantry. Rico's military career progresses from recruit to non-commissioned officer and finally to officer against the backdrop of an interstellar war between mankind and an arachnoid species known as "the Bugs".
In the sequel to Paul Verhoeven's loved/reviled sci-fi film, a group of troopers taking refuge in an abandoned outpost after fighting alien bugs, failing to realize that more danger lays in wait.
The war against the Bugs continues! A Federation Starship crash-lands on the distant Alien planet OM-1, stranding beloved leader Sky Marshal Anoke and several others, including comely but tough pilot Lola Beck. It's up to Colonel/General Johnny Rico, reluctant hero of the original Bug Invasion on Planet P, to lead a team of Troopers on a daring rescue mission.
