Starship Troopers: Invasion (2012)
A friend of mine from high school could never get enough of the original Starship Troopers. When I saw Starship Troopers: Invasion on Netlfix, I had to take a look.
This is an animated film in the franchise. Probably the best way to go forward if the franchise is to be continued. However, this is not for kids in anyway. Bare breasts are shown, cursing happens and lots and lots of blood and guts. Again, even though this is animated, not for the kids.
The movie does bring in the three main characters from the original film. Rico is now a general. Carmen is a captain of a starship and Carl is still a researcher with psychic powers causing problems. And that is where the movie goes with its story line. Carl commandeers Carmen's ship, the bugs invade and lots of people die. The twist here is that somehow the queen takes over the ship. That is about all that I will say about the story. Anymore and I will give away way too much.
The voice acting is pretty good. The animation itself is ok. Doesn't completely suck. Has more of a video game feel to it. If you want to see a good amount of digital death, this is the movie for you. And as I said at the top, you can find this movie on Netflix.
