Film I looked interest, but then I was still inexperienced. Later, when I have practiced in watching science fiction films and reading science fiction, I realized the plot, in General, mediocre. The film is based on the novel by Robert Heinlein, and those read it, say that movie not around lying. I'm not read and not going.

Of course, I love science fiction, but not like any reasonable spiders. Themes of displacements in prostranstve and time (for Example, "Crossroad of the worlds" — my favorite sci-Fi film) or technical progress (for example, "johnny Mnemonic") can be varied indefinitely and not tired. But to create all sorts of aliens after Herbert wells just pointless. He was the first and best after that it is simply an imitation. I understand if you pay it in Comedy (e.g., "Men in black"), then it at least cool.

Now for the film. Still Floor Verhoeven — done (master of black humour), we spiced it a fair amount of satire and sarcasm, for he thank you very much. It I remember compatriot, colleague and friend Rutger Hauer — one of the most brilliant actors of modern cinema. In the time, these guys literally to "promote" each other. They — the Dutch and the Europeans. And, back to theme for this film, the European experience Paul Verhoven not needed and, at his own admission, it — not the best work (rightly so).

So, the cast. Casper van Dean played here not well, there are some dumb (I personally like how he played in "Officer homicide". There it has the role of negative and he played its brilliant). Dina Meyer — my favorite actress, and, in fact, for this film I her I learned (well, not quite. "Dragon heart", I looked before). His role in this movie, she thinks his best role, although I of her heroines like crazy and roll Jane in"johnny Mnemonic". Jake busey played cool, though his film career I vaguely familiar, but I do remember it father, who with gloss plays all villains (commander Krill of the movie "under siege").

Above and beyond the game of Michael Ironside, although unusual to see him in a positive role (usually it is the military, or villains, and most of all other). From all the actors, that played this movie, in General I did not like Denise Richards (Yes, kill me, her fans). Although against her as the actress, don't have, but to Dina Meyer for her very far away. First, it is not a beautiful girl like Dean of a second, priest she is clearly losing (extreme not enough), and she poemu more famous. Why? Not know.

Role in the movie it is just disgusting. — a flirt, which is so Libetta that and look her mouth. tear. By the way, note that I am talking about role and not her acting skills though and about it too, so K. truly talented actors can do and from brand otsloenii role to do something (Bravo, Kurt Russell, Rutger Hauer, Dolph Lungren, Tommy Lee Jones, no wonder they — my favorite actors).

As you already noticed, I have great respect for the actors, well playing negative roles, but here they are all trusted by some spiders.

The weakest aspect of this film — this is the end. Ie if at first I watched a movie with interest to watch it cost me a Herculean effort. Many don't love a happy ending (although on my opinion it here is not), but sometimes better with a happy ending, than without him. Brave Michael Ironside and brilliant Dina Meyer died and a flirt Richards alive (it's dreadful). She she has lost the lover and ready to come back to Dean van (I must say, a very standard development). After the death of two of the most normal characters on the watch already do not want. In addition, if the moment the plot was at least some claim to the identity, then after him went the absolute standardization, stamp on stamp. And finally, finally I finished off the final film. I hate pathos!

So, to sum up. As I have said my favorite sci-Fi film — this is the "Crossroads of the worlds". And the end there that is necessary, though t happy ending. When the hapless lad rejoicing, celebrating the victory, the old soldier Alex A. T. (Rutger Hauer) says downright historic phrase: "We won because you decided to fight, and war ends never".

In our age of computer technology, mega cool special effects very often are churning out a movie in which a lot of computer graphics and now and bias 3D. Although in the past such films was not so many every the appearance was followed by a thunderous boom. For example, the movie "starship Troopers", so much loved by my friends and me we copied from video tapes on cassettes, constantly watching television and even tried to remove on a video camera. Because then it was opening!

And now there is nothing will surprise you. Giant bugs are coming — not new, a super hero with a Blaster — old. And almost every movie — it is the pursuit of effects, for the best rendering.

But let's talk about the film. Gender Verhoeven — one of favorite filmmakers for young people 90 years of age, who directed "Robocop" and"total Recall". It movie still loved, especially "Starship Troopers". And the film really managed — it has everything there is modern fighters — 

1 Action Packed fights (which is only one battle with the Arachnids on crushed base)

2 the Storyline of the characters(including love, friendship, the main characters),

3 Interesting scenario (although most the fighters he predictable),

4 music (Basil Poledouris one of my most favorite composers), and also

5 Great acting(the incomparable Jake busey as always enchants with its appearance of Dina Meyer and Casper van gorgeous Dien). So say — saying now and not far 90tye, pressed movies

With regards to the movie, it with the advent of such pictures there the terminology — high-quality action, high-level film. &Nbsp;however, because such films are nice to look out depends on age. And if you recommend something for viewing a great Thriller, then I highly recommend this movie, after watching you you will not regret no time and rather — only acquire more positive emotions. As said — recommended view!

Heinlein I have not read, not intend to, and even (most importantly) for the film is does not necessary. Because "starship troopers" — is no adaptation. And it's not a Hollywood movie.

He just pretending to be a Hollywood adaptation of the below, demonstrating a relatively serious person, not too covered quite thick jiving the American film industry by compiling popular machine in the hold of the stamps.

Here you and match in American football, in which the main character himself gets a victory on the last seconds, and traditional prom (with a hint of traditionally confined to his deflowering), and drill with a good uncle, a Sergeant-instructor, and before the pile of toxic concentration of white-toothed smiles on capita, tons of Patriotic fervor and even specially styled news and social advertising.

Here in this way to plot (probably the only thing that somehow connects the film with the original book) and strung like a thread listed clichés, and so that each looked like a more formulaic, and in such numbers, that all together do at this angle of view gives a comic effect.

It follows that assess the acting; no script or whatever any it was more of that it is customary to estimate the usual standards is impossible. All should be more glossy, stereotypical and narrow-minded, but not enough to fall in Frank thrash. Own it all of — on the verge, but not a foul. Perhaps the counterparts of each of the played in "starship troopers" episodes can really be found in nephrogenic Hollywood movies. So that style, you might say, seasoned, and the film is therefore quite watchable.

I do not know on exactly what Verhoeven wanted to make fun of: over their own producers, over fans of the book a mass American audience or generally the entire American culture — scale of hatred remains a mystery.

Only one problem: the approval of some local reviewers who issued the film red, no matter how a stupid film nor was American pokernagrode the audience will swallow and not choke. An no. Zaya turned out to be smarter and not let themselves be deceived: in rent "starship troopers" has failed. Felt so Yankee that something was wrong. But here by the Russian audience, as seen by the local reviews, not everyone is obvious.

PS: its suspicious resemblance to Dr. Stratilova particularly pleased with the lady leading the lesson on the anatomy of beetles.
