In 1997, director Paul Verhoeven unleashed his cinematic adaptation of the Starship Troopers novel. The movie follows a group of young adults, as they join various parts of the military ahead of an intergalactic war with a race of gigantic insects. Like many of Verhoven’s films, Starship Troopers is soaked in blood, dark humor, and social commentary. The film has actually spawned a few live action sequels, as well as a few CGI animated films of varying quality. The latest is Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars, which brings back original characters Johnny Rico, and is a direct follow up to the second live action film.
