The thing is boys and girls: this isn't the Shawshank Redemption...There's gratuitous nudity, corny dialog and not a lot of subtext. The thing is that Starship Troopers was never meant for anything like that; the setting is a sci-fi universe with much more gore, trash and nudity than would be expected. This movie is meant for the old Starship Troopers fans, those who know the movie (the first for god's sake) and the Roughnecks animated series; it isn't a good introduction to the setting but it wasn't meant to be. Overall I would give it an 8/10 because I was expecting a respectable follow-up to to the series that was graphically polished, sensible towards character development and not very predictable from a storyline point of view and as far as these basic requirements are concerned, it doesn't disappoint. Overall, if you liked the source material, and you know the setting this is a nice follow up and much better than the god-awful movie sequels. Despite my individual rating of 8/10, I gave the movie a rating of 10/10 if only to balance out the people who I assume weren't all that familiar with the setting and under voted a movie which, from an objective point of view, cannot possible receive less than a 6/10.
