It might seem like a blatant excuse to get the cast naked, but Starship Troopers ' shower scene is subversive for a couple of reasons. Dutch auteur Paul Verhoeven's first American movie was RoboCop , which became an instant sci-fi classic. It offered all the action and special effects audiences in could ask for, but the film's creative satire, themes of humanity versus technology and Verhoeven making the title character an "American Jesus" are some of the reasons it's so fondly remembered. Verhoeven's s work wasn't shy when it came to explicit violence or sex, but films like Total Recall also explored rich themes too. It's packed with bloody action and CGI that has held up surprisingly well, but it was a box-office disappointment. It later gained a cult following which led to four STV sequels, two of which were anime movies, with the most recent being 's Starship Troopers: Traitor Of Mars. Starship Troopers was met with mixed reviews upon release, with some critics slamming it for being a glorification of fascism and war. Of course, this was the exact opposite of Verhoeven's intent, with the film drawing on imagery from Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph Of The Will and military propaganda to build the bizarre, "utopian" society Starship Troopers takes place in. The casting of beautiful young actors is no accident either, with leading man Casper Van Dien having previously appeared on shows like Beverly Hills, , as did co-star Denise Richards and Dina Meyer.

After graduating from high school in Buenos Aires , John "Johnny" Rico , his girlfriend Carmen Ibanez, and psychic best friend Carl Jenkins enlist in the Federal Service, despite Rico's parents' disapproval of military service.

Paul Verhoeven's underrated sci-fi flick Starship Troopers celebrated its 20th anniversary a few weeks back, and it's made its way back into the collective conscience as proven by Egotastic All Stars reader Will H. While it's hard to say if Starship Troopers is one of Verhoeven's best films—I'd say it ranks fourth or fifth on his filmography—it's definitely not hard to say that the film flew over viewers' heads when it was released all those years ago. One of Verhoeven's achilles heels in the filmmaking process is poor casting. When you're making a bone dry satire of fascism, you've got to give us at least a handful of actors that can sell that concept, and spoiler alert, Casper Van Dien and Denise Richards weren't the ones to do that.
