Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

One of those straight-to-DVD sequels that is quite shamelessly cashing in on the success of the original.

This contains none of the original characters, (though one actress returns to play a different role) and is a base-under-seige story that takes place at cheaper-to-do-effects-in night. Aside from the CGI bugs which saturate the film, they've impressively maximised their profit-margin, which is obviously a back-handed compliment. (it was actually made on just 7% of the original's budget)

The characters take a while to sink-in, and the nudity and gore probably satisfies if you're into that sort of thing, but it is uphill work engaging with this. The last line was very funny though.

I'm glad that there's more Starship Troopers out there, but I'd really like to see a sequel.
