Product Description

The troopers of two starships have joined forces to terminate a massive bug attack at a federation outpost. Before the mission can be completed and the survivors evacuated, one ship abruptly departs and goes inexplicably dark. The remaining battle-hardened troopers race to the rescue, only to discover that the threat from the bugs is about to hit home. With the latest in CGI technology, this film from executive Producer Casper Van Dien and Director Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) features the return of fan favorite characters Johnny Rico, Captain Ibanez and Carl Jenkins.

The bugs are back! And so are the intrepid (not to mention hot) young men and women who are out to destroy them, as Starship Troopers soars on with Invasion, the franchise's fourth full-length movie. This one's animated--with mixed results, to say the least--but sci-fi fans, especially the younger, male ones, will still find lots to their liking. In this tale, the spaceship Alesia rushes to Fort Casey, an outpost of the United Citizen Federation that's been attacked by the giant, ferocious bugs familiar to Troopers watchers. But the John A. Warden, the ship that was stationed at the outpost, has gone missing, with Carl Jenkins, the mysterious minister of Paranormal Warfare, at the helm. When our heroes find the Warden, it's an ugly scene; the crew has been totally wiped out by bugs, whose gigantic queen is now in control. Her objective is nothing less than an all-out attack on Earth itself, leading to an infestation of frightful proportions, so the good guys clearly have their hands full. Roughnecks: Starship Trooper Chronicles, the animated TV series that preceded Invasion, was relatively tame when it came to violence and mature themes, but that's definitely not the case here, as the film is loaded with graphic violence and profanity, with some occasional nudity for good measure. The variety and detail of the bugs is limited, but the video game-style animation is very effective when it comes to special effects, action sequences, and overall production values. Humans, however, don't fare nearly as well, as their movements and facial expressions are utterly artificial; the nude scenes may appeal to horny adolescents, but everyone else will find them not just gratuitous but laughable. --Sam Graham

"Starship Troopers: Invasion," fourth feature film of the series, is a computer animated film directed by Shinji Aramaki, a Japanese animation director, best known for "Appleseed" (2004). Three principal characters from the Starship Troopers series, Carmen Ibanez, Carl Jenkins and Johnny Rico appear, but their roles are relatively small, in the film's first half in particular.

The story goes like this. Earth Federation Force troopers led by Lieutenant Tony Daugherty (Sam Roman) are sent to Federation's outpost Fort Casey that was attacked by bugs. One of the survivors is Carl Jenkins (Justin Doran), ministry of Paranormal Warfare, who takes over the command of the Starship John A. Warden from Carmen Ibanez (Luci Christian), and leaves the bug-infested base without telling what happened.

After the mission, Johnny Rico (David Matranga) - he is General Rico now - gives a new assignment to Carmen and the trooper team on the fast attack ship Alesia. John A. Warden is missing, and they have to find the starship and Carl.

The story of the 89 minute film is fast-paced but sometimes confusing and cluttered with too many characters. The weapon designs (trooper's powered suit and Marauders) are impressive, and so are the production designs of the starships, but CG-rendered human characters leave much to be desired. The faces of the characters barely escape the so-called "uncanny valley," but still sometimes look lifeless.

The combat scenes are mostly acceptable, but don't expect intensity of Paul Verhoeven's live-action version, which remains the best of the series. The battle scenes with Arachnids get repetitious as the story goes on, and sometimes movements of bugs and humans look a bit awkward. And ... do we need a shower scene here?

Not bad. It's all CGI. I sort of liked how they worked at getting the action and such to flow. It's hard using CGI to do this and they pretty much made it work.
As far as the story goes, it follows the Starship Troopers story line pretty good. I think that made Carl a bit more sinister than the previous movies but I guess that's OK, as I guess if you had his mental "gifts" you might be too. I noticed there was a good job of using the stuff from the previous movies too. (One note: They really must make their starships really well to have that ship go thru what it went thru an still crash in one piece!) Anyway, I enjoyed it and look forward to the next one.

Some of the best animation I've encountered. The video was just plain fun. On the down side, the story continues the characters developed in earlier films, but their appearance is totally changed. It would have been better to use the animated likenesses of the original actors.

This reminded me of the "final fantasy spirits within" CG movie. I am a fan of the very first Starship Troopers movie that came out. Everything that followed that movie was very cheesy and embarrassing to watch. This was a step up for them since it wasn't a complete failure in terms of artwork and detail. There was nothing really unique about the storyline and after it was over you're left with the idea that it's once again another chapter that doesn't really get anywhere. The makeovers for the three main characters were okay, expressions were okay, animation was good, but the dialogue & acting was a bit poor. Although the artwork and CG was very good, there was nothing about it that was visually stunning. The battle scenes were kind of cool but at times it was losing my interest. It belongs with the B movies on netflix soon. You will have to screen it before letting your children watch it since it had some unnecessary nudity. The way they executed those nude scenes was very corny and stupid. Though being a fan of the orginal movie made me over look past all the negatives I had towards this movie. It entertained me but I can't say I enjoyed it enough to own it. It wasn't totally a bad movie and overall I thought it was okay. I just can't recommend it to you since there was nothing exceptionally great about it.

Starship Troopers: Invasion is a breath of fresh air from the previous from the three previous films. I've been a fan of Starship Troopers since I first saw the film Starship Troopers back when it came out in November of 1997 a few weeks before the very disappointing Alien Resurrection. It wasn't a great film, but it was fun and entertaining with Denise Richards and two of my favorite actors in Michael Ironside and Neil Patrick Harris. Michael Ironside I think is a little known actor, but you might recognize him from his voice acting as he was the voice of Darkside in the Superman and Justice League cartoon series along with his work as Sam Fisher in the Splinter Cell series. Then there is the one and only Neil Patrick Harris who I've followed since I watched him in Doogie Howser. He really is special multi-talented actor who enjoys what he does. Heck was the best thing in the Harold and Kumar films, and the only reason to watch How I Met Your Mother. Though I enjoyed the movie I hadn't read Robert A. Heinlein novel the film was based off of. After the film I picked up the novel and loved it. Starship Troopers had little in common with Heinlein's novel besides a few things like the main character Rico. Seven years later Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation a film that should never have been made was released to DVD. The plot wasn't terrible, but the acting and effects were just god awful. After the crap fest that was Starship Troopers 2 Bold Films and Stage 6 thought it was a good idea to make Starship Troopers 3: Marauder.Read more ›
