Product Description

STARSHIP TROOPERS 3: MARAUDER explodes with mind-blowing man-on-bug combat! Col. Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) is back to lead his team on a secret mission to rescue a small crew of troopers stranded on the remote planet of OM-1. Battling bugs, both new and old, the new "Marauder" advanced weapons technology may be their only hope against a treasonous element operating within the Federation itself. As Captain Lola Beck (Jolene Blalock) and the rest of the starship crew fight to survive in the harsh conditions, it begins to dawn on them that something on OM-1 is very, very wrong. This time the bugs have a secret weapon that could destroy humanity. Join the Mobile Infantry in this intergalactic action-packed adventure.

Amazon.com

Hewing closer to Paul Verhoeven's original and much-maligned Starship Troopers than the all-brawn-no-brains sequel, Hero of the Federation, Starship Troopers 3: Marauder blends high-power action with a dose of socio-political commentary in its story of gung-ho Marines versus insidious alien bugs. Ed Neumeier, who penned the Verhoeven film, is back as writer and director, as is Casper Van Dien as lantern-jawed hero Johnny Rico. Now a full-fledged colonel, he is dispatched to a planet where the military faces opposition from both the insect army and dissenting citizens. But after a trumped-up murder charge lands him on death row, Rico discovers that he's being sent on a secret mission to rescue a Sky Marshal (Stephen Anouke) who's gone missing deep in bug territory. Neumeier uses the well-worn military movie tropes to launch a satiric assault on all manner of current real world issues, from ultra-patriotism and military torture to religious fundamentalism and even pop culture as propaganda (Anouke's sky marshal is also a chart-topping singer). He lands a fair share of his jabs, and those that fall flat--Marnette Patterson's grating flight attendant--are tempered by sights like a ring of mechanical warrior 'bots forming an angelic halo. Unfortunately, said special effects are not particularly special, with the robots--the Marauders of the title--arriving far too late in the game. But with so many direct-to-DVD genre titles delivering little more than shoot-em-ups and CGI demonstrations, the tinge of black humor that runs through Starship Troopers 3 is appreciated. The disc includes two commentaries, one featuring Neumeier, Van Dien and Jolene Blalock (Enterprise), and the other with Neumeier and producer David Lancaster; a featurette on the new bugs on display in Troopers 3, as well as interviews with the movie's soldiers, round out the extra features. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars It Is a Good Day to Die August 13, 2008
By AMP
Format:DVD
My Rating: 3.75 out of 5

The Good Things
*Has a good amount of action and special effects.
*Very good photography.
*Better production quality than "Starship Troopers 2." Sets, props, and costumes are great. Introduces plenty of new gadgets and new alien bugs.
*Remains true to the original concepts and ideas presented in the last films.
*Storyline is good and easy to follow.
*Writing is generally good. The movie has a few good lines (some unintentionally funny).
*Greater insight on the political system (the Citizen's Federation). Much of the movie focuses on the inter-office transactions in the high-ranking sections, so it's more than just a bunch of guys with guns blowing stuff up.
*Interesting themes about religion and politics. Some interesting satire (but still not up to par with the first film).
*Good cast of characters. Acting is passable.
*Music is okay.

The Bad Things
*Probably not for the squeamish. Contains some bloody violence and nudity (but it's not quite as bad as the last two films).
*Despite the slick-looking production value, it's still not up to par with the first film, and can therefore be seen as inferior (I don't think it's too bad, though). Also, some special effects do look a little fake.

"Starship Troopers 2" was completely dull; I was pleased to see that number 3 returned to the basic fundamentals of the first original film. Aside from bringing back Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien), they've also brought back the battles, the satire, the gung-ho attitude, and consequently, the fun. It expands the franchise a little better too, incorporating more interesting political issues and ideas, and presenting a religious element.

3.0 out of 5 stars Campy, Corny, and Fun August 7, 2008
Format:DVD
STARSHIP TROOPERS 3: MARAUDER is a direct to DVD movie based loosely on a world and characters created by Robert A. Heinlein in his classic sci-fi adventure novel STARSHIP TROOPERS. While this movie is neither high budget nor high art, it is a very entertaining way to spend an evening at home. It is also a MUCH better follow on to the original STARSHIP TROOPERS movie than the simply dreadful second installment.

Casper Van Dien returns as our hero, Johnny Rico. His is joined by STAR TREK veteran Jolene Blalock as the rather well-formed, command pilot, damsel-in-distress. The performances by these two are very enjoyable, and it is good to see them both working again. They are joined by a very able supporting cast, all of whom add to the fun.

The special effects are a bit worn and corny, but overall, they work just fine for the comic book style of the movie. The Bugs are back, still trying to exterminate the humans, and we are trying just as hard to exterminate them back. Tons of explosions, lots of gore, and our hero saves the day. Pretty much what you want in a good, old fashioned "B" movie.

And the best part of all, we finally, finally get what we have been waiting for: the Mech Suits!! They were everything I had always imagined, and more. What took you guys so long??? The mechanized battle suits are what define the Mobile Infantry. Now, Johnny Rico will truly be the hero that Heinlein wrote. STARSHIP TROOPERS 3: MARAUDER is well worth seeing, especially for that reason. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars A good day to die indeed April 18, 2009
By zl21
Format:DVD
Oh my god is this a horrible movie. If someone said "go and make the worst Starship Trooper movie possible", it would look just like this...only better.

The acting is a atrocious, the story is convoluted and the special effects are pathetic. What were they thinking? Why was this movie even made? Who signed off on this flick? Why did I buy it at the video store?

Well, actually I know why I bought it. The first Starship Trooper movie is one of my guilty pleasures. It's campy sci-fi fun with battles against killer space bugs. The second movie wasn't very good but it was at least watchable.

There are so many things wrong with this movie and so few right I'm not even sure where to begin....How about the fact that the only thing keeping back the horde of killer bugs is the electrical fence and no one thinks maybe they should have a back up generator or something. Oops! Power failure. Time to die.

And what is with the singing Air Marshall? Is this a joke? "It's a Good Day to Die?" Who could of possibly thought that was a good idea? It's unreal.

And why did they feel it was necessary to bring religion into this? It served absolutely no purpose. When they start reciting The Lords Prayer is one of the films many low points. Another is when we have to watch two bone heads kiss while they completely block the view of the exploding planet. The climatic scene no less. Ugh!

But the lowest point of the film comes when the marines have to strip down to get fitted for there "Marauder" battle suits. You can just hear the director saying "ok, this film is going pretty good but we really need to see some naked people." It is so pointless and the dialog in the scene is so bad it will leave you speechless.

I am giving this film one star. Not because it deserves a star but because Amazon wont let me give it less.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heinlein it's not.
This is just a little less well written than the first Starship Troopers. I believe that Mr. Heinlein would have laughed but would have watched anyway.

Starship Troopers 3
Just finished watching it and I liked it. It was gory, cheesy and very anti-war. I loved how they killed the war protesters and the people in the bar watched and cheered. I liked the Admiral towards the end talking about how the perfect weapon to fight wars would be one that made the people... Read More
