Starship Troopers – RAW
- Almost all of the TV scenes have been removed.
- All satiric scenes were removed.
This was an interesting fanedit. Starship Troopers is such a great guilty pleasure movie for me, I thought it was terrible when I first saw it but as I got older I understood satire better and now I think it’s pretty brilliant. But with this edit, it takes away everything that was brilliant. It’s a terrible terrible movie now. Narratively speaking, it’s a piece of shit. Entertainment-wise it’s still a whole hell of a lot of fun to watch. (Not quite on par with Saving Private Ryan, I must say.)
AV Quality - 8
Editing - 9 visual, 8 audio
Narrative - 5
Enjoyment - 8 (original 9)

As others have said, there are some hard transitions, which is a shame, but overall, well done. I usually don’t like too much action, but since Michael Bay didn’t make it, it was ok. Haha. I like the B-movie feeling of it and the special effects stand up way better than a lot of movies that are much newer. (kinda sad, really) There did seem to be a bit of disconnect between characters, but no big deal. And having just watched another fanedit with every credit removed save the director, it was nice to see one with them intact. I’ll give this one a 7/10.
