Ok I knew this wasn’t going to be good but oh boy was it bad.
I’m not sure why exactly, it had the same writer as the first two, actually Starship Troopers 2 was pretty awful too, I’d even go as far as to say it was worse then number 3.
The acting was very flat and the plot had some terrible setups. The SFX were OK but some of the CGI was noticeable, unlike the original which did a good job of making the bugs blend into the live action.
If you liked the original then you will probably enjoy this one just don’t get your hopes up.
