Gear up and head out! This week on At Least You Tried we watch Lance’s pick of the straight to video Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, a movie that despite coming out eleven years after the original looks MUCH worse. If you ever wondered what an advanced space bug religion might look like this is the movie for you.
Join up and do your part as we reunite with Johnny Rico and his roughnecks. Johnny played by the chiseled chinned Casper van Dien is the only familiar face in this installment in the Starship Trooper universe. Now a Corporal in the mobile infantry he must contend not only with the bugs but with the corrupt upper echelons of the Terran Federation.
Unlike the second Starship Troopers movie Marauder returns to a more action oriented sci fi romp. Unfortunatly our kickass action scenes are interrupted by desert wanderings and boring hamfisted political intrigue. To it’s credit the movie is fairly self aware of its corniness. So if you think it’s a good day to die then suit up and become citizens with us. What’s wrong, you wanna live forever?
