Horrible Horror: 'Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation'

by Ian Roesler The opinions and views expressed in this article are those of the author and do not reflect the opinion of Byte or Byte's editorial board. I first found out about Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation when I saw a commercial for Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. You could buy all three movies in one case. Naturally I went out, bought it, and then watched it. The first one’s easily the best, but this about isn’t about the first one. Starship Troopers had a budget of $105,000,000 and was an action/adventure satirical movie. The second one came out seven years after the original with a budget of $7,000,000 and is a straight to DVD horror movie. It still continues the story of humanity fighting the Arachnids or “Bugs” as they are referred to throughout the series.
