From Director Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed, Appleseed EX Machina), comes the surprisingly cool looking Starship Troopers: Invasion — A CG epic based on Robert Heinlein‘s book and continuing ten years on from Paul Verhoeven’s ’97 effort (and thankfully, ignoring all subsequent sequels).
On first viewing you wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that it had the look of another Appleseed sequel, with the Mecha design armour. And that’s a good thing. The rest of the feel of the film seems to have the original ‘campness’ that the movie had.
A distant Federation outpost Fort Casey comes under attack by bugs. The team on the fast attack ship Alesia is assigned to help the Starship John A. Warden stationed in Fort Casey evacuate along with the survivors and bring military intelligence safely back to Earth. Carl Jenkins, now ministry of Paranormal Warfare, takes the starship on a clandestine mission before its rendezvous with the Alesia and goes missing in the nebula. Now, the battle-hardened troopers are charged with a rescue mission that may lead to a much more sinister consequence than they ever could have imagined….
