«Do you have what it takes to be a Citizen?»
Война против жуков продолжается. Звездолёт Федерации терпит крушение на далёкой планете инопланетян OM-1, переплетая судьбы влюблённого командира, маршала космических войск Энока, и некоторых других персонажей, включая миловидную, хотя и жёсткую пилота Лолу Бек. Это заставляет генерала-полковника Джонни Рико, героя сражений во времена первого вторжения жуков на планету П, повести группу десантников на отважную спасательную миссию.
Lola Beck: We're fucked.
Jingo Ryan: Yeah. That's exactly what I've been saying.
Holly Little: You shouldn't talk like that. That's blasphemy.
Lola Beck: You're a goddamn flight attendant, so stow it.
Johnny Rico: Situation, lieutenant.
Link Manion: Totally, ominously fucked up, sir.
Johnny Rico: You know what to do: Get in there and kill 'em all!
The best direct-to-DVD ever
Starship Troopers was a milestone in the science-fiction domain, regarding both the storyline, and special effects. Underrated at first, is now an ensemble of the war movie as well as a clever commentary to the present world, its problems, politics etc. It was more than obvious that sequels must come shortly. The only surprise (unpleasant one, unfortunately), was that Sony, the owner of the franchise, decided to drastically cut funds for them, therefore Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation had to cope with the standard direct-to-DVD budget around 6 million USD, which, of course, for the abundant story of the interstellar war, was next to nothing. Yet Phil Tippett, the special effects supervisor in the first movie and the director in the second, worked wonders with this small amount of money. Hero of the Federation was a decent movie with special effects of the same quality as in the first part of the saga. What's more important, it made enough money to encourage executives at Sony to invest some more cash (20 million USD namely) and give a green light for the third installment in the ST universe.
This time, with Ed Neumeier as the director and the screenwriter, we have a greater budget, and much more ambitious screenplay, trying to restore the plot to the first movie level. After seeing this film four times, I must say that I'm really surprised by the large amount of the negative feedback from the reviewers. Starship Troopers 3: Marauder is unbelievably good, and although made straight to DVD market, it would easily be presented in cinemas (and in Asia was!). Shot on 35 mm shows the world of ST in a very wide spectrum. We have large ground battles on distant worlds (at Roku San and OM-1), outer space scenes (excellent Sanctuary star base), as well as different shots of Terran headquarters and science facilities. Acting is very good for almost all characters (outstanding Casper van Dien, Jolene Blalock, Stephen Hogan, Amanda Donohoe, maybe with exception of Boris Kodjoe). Special effects do not surpass the first movie, but what would You expect for one fifth of the original budget? Moreover, as CGI are acceptable, but not great (yet still can compete with the largest hits, such as the latest: Indiana Jones, Revenge of the Sith, or Iron Man), the miniature effects designed by Robert Skotak are flawless (see Scorpion class bug, grenade kamikaze and all effects in the close-ups).
The final thumb up for the movie is the script. ST3 is a rare gem, that unveils new details and aspects when watched for the second, third and more times. For example, the behavior of Sky Marshall Anoke is understandable when we already know, what was the main clue in the movie. Also, try to focus on the small but beautiful details, such as bass-relief behind Admiral Phid's desk in her office, choreography of the troopers during "It's a good day to die" video clip and many more. Finally, ST3 is a movie with a message (which is very rare in today American cinema). The director tried to say something about the human condition in the contemporary world, influence of the religion on our actions and how these can be exploited by witty dictators and even rulers of the democratic countries. It is clear that unlike other movies mentioned here, Marauder was made by someone who has an imagination and the heart for SF stories. What we get here is of the top quality in all aspects - the crew did their best to ensure that both fans and "ordinary" people get something out of this.
ST3 is a must-see for all, who do not regard Jumper, Mummy 3, Hellboy 2, or Dark Knight as good sci-fi movies or movies at all, and yearn for the true, classic science fiction stories. It is also light years ahead of other (unfortunately very weak) direct-to-DVD movies (Lost Boys: The Tribe, Scorpion King 2, War Games 2 etc.). Let's hope that we will see the fourth part of this exciting series shortly, maybe with greater budget and the same, outstanding cast? Автор рецензии: Piotr Bilski Афиша
