Many people say that the movie Starship Troopers is in production far too much these days, but I believe they are wrong. The movie has an amazing story and the best dialogue ever written. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good adventure or science fiction film.In this blog post you will find all about “Starship Troopers”, from its cast members to what it is about and why it is considered a classic for generations of people over the years. One of the best science fiction films of all time, Starship Troopers brought to the big screen a science fiction concept that hadn’t been done before. It is still considered by many fans of the genre as one of the best film adaptations of Robert Heinlein’s 1959 novel.

A film adaptation of the novel Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein, this movie tells the story of Johnny Rico (Clifford, played by Neil Patrick Harris) who is a good-natured young man with great athletic potential who decides to serve in the military after high school graduation. There he becomes friends with Carl Jenkins (Michael Ironside), his childhood friend and former football teammate, as well as Carmen Ibanez (Denise Richards), a feisty soldier who is majoring in nursing and has her sights set on Johnny. Together they join a Federal Service training camp where they are taught how to defend against a species of giant arachnids known as the “bugs”.
The Movie :
Since its release to the silver screen in 1997, Starship Troopers has been considered one of the best military science fiction movies ever made. The film was written as a subtext for political reasons, and it was produced by MCA-Universal with a budget of $186 million. If it wasn’t for the fact that this movie was released at a time where America had yet to enter its most violent phase in history, Starship Troopers would definitely be ranked among the top 10 science fiction movies ever made.
One can’t help but love this movie, from the first moment all the way through until it’s very end. The cast is outstanding, the acting is superb, the set and special effects are not bad at all and it was directed by Paul Verhoeven who, overall, has one of the best visual arts in his career.
Box Office Collection :
The Movie earned a total of $204,000,000 at the box office since its release. This film was not a big success when it came out in theatres. It was considered more of a cult hit and only gained a moderate amount of attention for being a “liberal” film.
Total budget of movie – $186,000,000
Starship Troopers has been released on video and DVD many times over the years. It was first released in 1997 on VHS and Laserdisc. It was released to DVD in 2002 as a 2-disc set. The film has also been released in a UMD format for Sony’s PlayStation Portable. Nowadays it can be purchased via Blu-Ray format as well.
Who Should Watch This Movie?
If you enjoy a good science fiction film, then you should definitely check out this one! It is one of the best science fiction films ever made and it has everything to offer: great acting, amazing stunts, beauty, as well as a plot that goes through an entire war and makes it very realistic.
How Bad Is This Movie ?
Starship Troopers is not an action film but rather one that starts slowly and gradually becomes intense compared to the last minutes where all hell breaks loose. The movie is not too bad in my opinion. If you want to see a generic action movie for teenage youths then this movie will do the trick. If you love science fiction, then I strongly suggest you check out this movie as it is a great story and the base is incredible.
My Rating On This Movie :
Overall, Starship Troopers is a great movie and I am glad that I had the opportunity to see this. If you are a sci-fi fan, especially one who loves military science fiction films then this one is definitely for you. This film is perfect for people who love political drama and war movies. I rate this movie a solid 9/10.
