Format: Blu-ray
"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.

There are 4 Starship Troopers films in all, the first having been directed by Paul Verhoeven in 1997. Interestingly each one has a different director. And the original “Starship Troopers” was a sci-fi novel written a long time ago by the Dean of American science fiction, Robert Heinlein.
I really enjoyed all three of the other films (which have more conventional filming combined with CG effects). This one is directed by a Japanese filmmaker, and is entirely in animated format.

The world of animated film continues to progress. I thought most of the scenery, both as seen from space and in the interiors, looked realistic. As for the characters, apparently they used a lot of motion-capture techniques allowing them to film the movements of real actors, but transform his or her appearance just about any way desired. In this case, the appearance of the characters looked distinctly less real and more animated than the the backgrounds, which was annoying at first, until you get used to it.

It does take place in the same “Starship Troopers” universe as the other films: set several centuries into the future, mankind has somehow learned the trick of space travel [in this film, it clearly involves wormholes] and is busy expanding to other worlds on nearby stars. Unfortunately when we tried to colonize one potentially attractive world, we found that another intelligent species had beaten us there. This species is very different from humans: more like highly intelligent ants or bees, they look like huge insects, and we soon dub them “the bugs”. They have different specialized classes: fighters, workers, bombers, and Queen bugs, among others. Mankind very quickly comes into full-scale conflict with the “bug” empire.

This movie is done in a computer animation style which is done well and I did like it for myself but I am sure this isn't for everyone. I did like the story and the characters but for me there was something lacking and to be very honest, I'm not sure what it was. We have the standard/stock characters and all are as they should be but why, oh, why do we have to keep involving the tough lady character it is very annoying, why can't she be a good soldier and not be so.....masculine? there are other characters that will grate on your nerves but is this is your kind of thing, you will enjoy it. I did like the live action "Starship Trooper" movies even with them bordering on some kind of Nazi organization. I guess the call for them doesn't happen anymore.
