Starship Troopers | 1997 | R | - 5.10.5

Sci-fi flick about humans battling giant bugs.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A shower scene with lots of male and female bare buttocks and female breasts. A couple kiss and she takes off her top; we see her breasts and she gets on top as they kiss. More kissing and sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - Lots of gory scenes. Many battles between the bugs and humans. Many humans are eaten or impaled by bugs, with lots of blood; humans are torn in half, limbs are strewn around and guts are outside bodies. Many humans are beheaded by flying bugs with claws and some are sucked into the ground by burrowing bugs -- a man is shown with bloody stumps after being sucked into the ground. A woman is impaled through the stomach and chest and people try to hold her down to take claws out while a lot of blood is spewing out. A woman is cut in half by a door (with lots of blood). Men are impaled but still alive as the bugs manipulate their impaled bodies. A bug pokes a man's head and sucks his brains out as his face seems to deflate. A man is sliced open and we see his insides. A bug is experimented upon with shocks, etc. When bugs are shot or bombed there is a lot of goo. A bug eats a cow (blood and other matter splatters everywhere). A man's head is shot off with blood and brains splattering. A man has a hole in his head and another man sticks his fingers in the hole. A sergeant beats up on recruits by whacking them with clubs, punching them, and he breaks a person's arm with a crack. Recruits are shocked with zap guns. A man chokes a woman with his legs and a woman has bruises on her throat. A man throws a knife through a man's hand. A man is flogged with blood shown on his back with each lash. Hospital scenes with lots of blood and people with amputated limbs. A woman's arm catches fire and it melts off. The bugs are gross looking. Fires and explosions.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
