1.0 out of 5 stars A good day to die indeed, April 18, 2009
By 
This review is from: Starship Troopers 3: Marauder (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.
