Overview

Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation

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.

The header says it all. The first movie was an action packed look at a facist future. This is a half-baked attempt at milking the name 'Starship Troopers' for all its worth. Robert A. Heinlein would cry at this.

The original Starship Troopers achieved a high cult-like following with humanity's war against the bugs, but the sequel doesn't cut it. A promising movie that had more overt themes of the horrors of war, ignorance of war, and a one-world fascist state that owned every human being in the original was coopted with even weirder and freakier violence with small brain bugs and less gore but with pseudosexual themes. Dax played a minor relief.

This movie was good and all, but the point I got out of it was it was to bring out more and interesting new bugs for the final showdown, whenever they make it.
