New Video Compares STARSHIP TROOPERS the Book to the Movie

STARSHIP TROOPERS Rare Behind the Scenes Photos

Here’s an informative video from Cinefix that breaks down the differences between Robert Heinlein’s 1954 book Starship Troopers and the 1997 Paul Verhoeven-directed film, this is the video for diehard Starship Troopers fans like myself.

If you’re familiar with the book then you know the film is very different in a lot of ways. The one thing that continues consistently is the basic plot that follows a kid who defies his rich parents’ wishes for him to go to college and rather joins the Federation to fight bugs.

The video came with the following note:

Paul Verhoeven’s sneaky brilliant satirical bloodbath is becoming more and more relevant by the day. So it’s time to take a look at Robert Heinlein’s landmark novel written 40 years prior to Casper Van Dien turning bugs into goop on screen. Time to join the fight and ask What’s the Difference?
