"[2] ...a solid effort from newbie director Phil Tippett...a labor of love and that feeling comes off very strongly.  Adam Rosenberg, DVD Fanatic
"[2] ...a pleasing second coming for the bug squashers.  Clint Morris, MovieHole
"[3] ...brings the war into our living rooms with a familiar face, lots of explosions, and dark satire...fans [of the first film] will have a blast watching it.  Dread Central
"[1] The film's special effects are astonishing, but the most notable and unexpected thing is its tone.  Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"[1] This twisted space opera serves up carcasses in six-digit figures but is foremost a sendup for the ages.  Mike Clark, USA Today
"[3] ...quite enjoyable. The sets and locations are good...and there is enough of the political and social commentary...that it harkens back to the original.  Peter Brown, If Magazine
"[1] A spectacularly gung-ho sci-fi epic that delivers two hours of good, nasty fun.  Todd McCarthy, Variety

Editor's Note
Own the space-bug saga that began with Paul Verhoeven's original theatrical hit STARSHIP TROOPERS, a ghoulish mix of big-budget, half-spoofy sci-fi action, gore, and military-media satire starring Casper Van Dien (SLEEPY HOLLOW), Dina Meyer (SAW), Denise Richards (WILD THINGS), and Neil Patrick Harris (DOOGIE HOWSER, MD). Edward Neumeier--co-scribe of ROBOCOP and the original STARSHIP TROOPERS--comes back for round 2 with HERO OF THE FEDERATION, in which a group of soldiers do battle with the ugly bugs in an abandoned outpost. Finally, Van Dien returns after over a decade for the second sequel to the original alien-bug-battling, action-packed splatter-fest satire. More gee-whiz WWII media-and-soap opera parody is on hand when the celebrated Colonel Johnny Rico (Van Dien) finds himself put on death row for acting inappropriately during battle. But when a Federation starship piloted by tough soldier babe Lola Beck (Jolene Blalock, ENTERPRISE) crashes on a far-away alien planet, only the bug-squashing Rico can save the day, and so the authorities have no choice but to release him for the mission. Armed with an impossibly advanced weapon known as the Marauder, Rico and his crew are prepared to exterminate by any means necessary. MARAUDER marks the directorial debut of regular series writer Neumeier.

[2] Starship Troopers has proved itself as a cult classic, holding its own since the release of the film in 1997. Many different ideas in one, Troopers was a parody of the government, a look at the horror of war, and a giant bug movie all in one. The sequel abandons almost everything that was well done by the first film and first-time director Phil Tippett knows it...Starship Troopers 2 biggest problem is its budget. The sets are clouded by a thick fog, look cheap, and are all obviously on a sound stage. The actual bug effects are on par with the first film, but they only make an appearance a few times in the movie. The script gives the creatures and entirely new place to live which borrows the same idea created years ago by writers of Alien (with a hint of Species). Don't worry, I didn't spoil anything. You can see the "twist" coming very early on. No one will go into this movie wanting to see humans fighting humans. They want the Bugs. They won't get that here...The real way to tell if a B-movie is good is to imagine it with a bigger budget. If the effects (or even the sets) were better here, it would make no difference. It's dull, boring, and just plain awful. It has no connection with the original, nor does it try to. The only highlights are the catchy theme song, a few of the performances, and outrageous gore effects. Even if you?re a die-hard fan of the original, you will find little of interest here. - Matt Paprocki

[3] When speaking of sequels, we've heard directors say, "I've already made that movie." and actors often imply that follow-ups are beneath. Thus, it's reassuring when someone, either in front of or behind the camera, is involved in a sequel. A familiar face or name guarantees some sort of satisfaction, right? Starship Troopers 3: Marauder quickly disproved that theory...If you've seen Paul Verhoeven's Starship Troopers, then you know that the movie is a mixture of sci-fi action and political messages (most of which are concerned with fascism and Nazis.) Ed Neumeier, who wrote the screenplays for the first and second films in this series, takes the reins as both writer and director for Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. With this film, he could have made a straight ahead sci-fi monster movie, or he could have made a message film. Instead, he decided to go the route of Starship Troopers and combine the two. Unfortunately, neither really works...It's great to have Casper Van Dien on board as Johnny Rico and the movie attempts to give us lots of Bug action, but the story is very convoluted and it wants to throw too many political ideas at us. Oddly, the animated Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles has been the best Starship Troopers sequel thus far. - Mike Long

[1] Starship Troopers might be one of the most brilliant science fiction movies ever made -- and it's definitely one of the most misunderstood. On the surface, it's a crowd-pleasing tale of a group of clean-scrubbed youths who join tomorrow's space-faring armed forces to fight a race of giant arachnids. But when the special-effects-packed epic was released in 1997, it was pilloried by most critics. Many pooh-poohed director Paul Verhoeven for laying on the gore with a trowel. Others scoffed at the Beverly Hills, 90210-worthy romance between cheesecake pin-up Denise Richards and Teen Beat cover-boy Casper Van Dien. But most reviewers were horrified at Verhoeven's brazen use of fascist imagery, dressing up his fresh-faced stars in Nazi-inspired uniforms and spurring them into battle with propaganda clips straight out of Triumph of the Will...What those critics -- and the public -- didn't understand, was that that was the whole point. When Robert Heinlein wrote the novel Starship Troopers in 1959, he intended it as a sincere argument that democracy was doomed, and that some sort of enlightened authoritarianism was humanity's only hope. Although a fan of the book, screenwriter Ed Neumeier thought Heinlein's vision was ridiculous. But rather than condemn it outright, he decided to satirize it from within. - Tor Thorsen
