As expected, the sequel was much weaker than the original. More precisely - it just a talentless fake, not meet the standards which used to lovers of the first film.

In the original film took place really exciting and intense action and attended by colorful characters with developed personalities. In General, almost all was done a high level of quality and professionalism.

But in this sequel, if it can be called, all this is possible even not to look. Here, everything has changed, starting with the budget, which was cut in many times and ending, in fact, the filmmakers and cast. All the characters in the movie did not notable for not particularly make the audience for them to survive. They all rather similar to the shabby soldiers after the global Apocalypse, waiting for the bright future of yourself the bunker than on the elite soldiers of the troops, ready to finally win in this war.

The rest of familiar entourage is the giant hordes of hostile insects, which aimed to exterminate the human race. But unfortunately, battles with these monsters here also not than the proper level. Almost throughout the film the action takes place in a kind of bunker, where you had to hide the remaining in the living soldiers. All the same, and the authors this was not enough and they more tension came up with a move with a new kind of insect that dwell in the human body and start from the inside it to control. But all makes comparisons with other samples of the genre.

Of course, on the quality of the picture affected a relatively small budget, which is not was able to create large-scale special effects, no invite experienced creators and performers. Probably at this reason, the film doesn't got into service went to video that not at all surprising.

The first part — unique. And this is not only the film starship Troopers. But and other films, after the success of be frankly "grey" sequel. Do — the second part is about insects have not so dynamic and unique (given the current times), but and it is possible to find the pros.

We have? A group of Marines, along with General and a couple of psychics are on the planet where full of bugs. Together with them by the way turns out to be a paratrooper, which in the first part was the commander of the ship (!!!) and even killed. Funny? Rather no than Yes. So here — they are a small checkpoint. Inside the checkpoint — condemned the hero. The character that killed the man. So himself the hero of course, than just say many paratroopers. However, this does not prevent them to what the time of hero to release that that saved them death.

And then the fun begins. In the company a paratrooper get a couple of men and woman that somehow inexplicably survived. In the future is what beetles tested on them their new weapons. Simply put — turned into the people are a couple of parasites that the has infected others, and other infect others. So here was the plan. The only thing that bugs considered (and they could?) — it is the presence of the prisoner hero (aka the killer).

Limited space, strange acting, music from which "wither ears." At this film you can watch. For two reasons. The first — the presence of very beautiful women paratroopers (one of them all naked. Apparently they decided the male half of the audience at this hook). A second — "mum-bug," the parent of the spiders (that of the black commando, and looked really creepy). In the movie "one viewing". Lovers war with alien creatures, the film will surely enjoy.

Patriotic American slogan before credits — it is okay. But here's the scene with child end — then of course there are questions. Let the movie, but the child was and remains a child.

The first part, published in 1997, was a full-blooded action, in which every minute there were explosions, shooting and the Beatles, who fought against mankind (to be exact, Americans). The final film was completely finished, without any hint on continuation. And now, after seven seven years released a sequel.

The second part is a formal continuation, because neither the main actors, nor the idea of the first part of the film is not supported. Of the action film turned into some sort of movie "the thing" is John carpenter, but here is much easier low cost. After watching the shootout in the beginning of the film you understand why the film changed the genre. So as of shooting machines light bulbs end low-poly bugs are starting to come into the horror.

But it is impossible to say that the change of genre the film went on advantage. The Director often shows the actors closeup that in this game to do just contraindicated. Actually, it and the game can not be called, because the actors just say the phrase the scenario pulling a face, trying to show some emotion. Himself the film is easy to obscene it all "turns" begin to guess already 30 minute viewing.

From all the above you may think that the film is genuine trash. To unfortunately it it is. The only positive aspect of the film due to the news releases that are made directly in the style of the first part.

Result. The film is not recommended view neither a fan of the series, and even more than whoever has decided to begin acquaintance with a trilogy with this part.
