Starship Troopers (1997)

Starship Troopers

Directed by Paul Verhoeven

1997 • R • English • 129 min.

Starship Troopers pokes fun at big dumb action movies while doing a pretty great job of being a big dumb action movie. Which isn’t too surprising, given director Paul Verhoeven’s penchant for subverting genre expectations. He also mercilessly skewers fascism, so this movie is (sadly) more relevant today than it was when it came out in the late 90s.

Cast: Casper Van Dien, Denise Richards, Dina Meyer
