Well, at least they got power armor this time. Johnny still not a Filipino? Typical.

Looking at the "formations," still not as awesome as the book.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Yep. End of the book, he talks about Ramon Magsaysay, and mutters a phrase in Tagalog....

"U wanna live forever?"

Still one of my favorite books I read as a kid. I think a company of the M.I. in the book could have smashed the whole Russian Army in Europe circa 1980.


"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know no way of judging of the future but by the past."
Patrick Henry 1775

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Talk about spoiler, Dizzy is dead in the first movie yet she's walking around in a tight suit on an desolated Mars.

Indeed, it is a great book. I am sure I have read it at least five or six times. However, as a movie, it appears that it will be, yet again, a dismal failure.

Loved the original movie...original being a true statement. LOL
Didn't care much for the book, but probably because I saw the movie first and didn't finish it.
The last cgi movie was really good, book fans might like it a lot more. I think it's cool that Casper Van Dien is such a fan that he's either been in or produced everything related other than the second movie and tv cartoon.

I think you are right. I got this from the Wiki page for the movie,

"The film is scheduled to be given a one-night release on August 21, 2017, via Fathom Events"

After that I guess you'll have to get it on dvd or stream it online.

. Yes and as we all know, that cast of the young 20-something recruits were just so convincing as Argentinians!

I'm confused. Why do only the faces look cgi, like out of a video game?


Speaking of Troopers, I saw there is going to be a "Super Troopers 2" !!!

It's an animated movie. It's not live action.

Well, if they weren't going to follow the book anyway, why make them from Argentina? Just for a little emotional tie-in when the bugs nuke Argentina? Was that even in the first movie? Then again, if they wanted a little more emotional aspect to the movie, they could've included the "letters from Mom" bit from the book.

Yes it was. Buenos Aires gets destroyed by one of the huge asteroids directed by the insect aliens.
