Starship Troopers


A futuristic sci-fi satire. Our hero decides to sign up as an infantryman straight out of school to impress his girlfriend. His civilian parents urge him against it, especially given the increased threat from an alien bug species trying to destroy all humans. But against their wishes, he goes off to boot camp, where with his new pal and old school chum he must endure extremely rigorous training and the abuses of a typically sadistic drill sergeant. This gruelling instruction serves the young cadets well when they find they must employ some mighty impressive maneuvers to evade their formidable giant insectoid foes.
