Troopers is a 1997 American military science fiction film, written by
Edward Neumeier (screenplay), directed by Paul Verhoeven, with some
names and details taken from Starship Troopers, a novel by Robert A.
Heinlein. It was the first of three films released in the Starship
Troopers franchise. The film had a budget estimated around 100 million
US dollars and grossed over 120 million dollars worldwide.
The story follows a young soldier named Johnny Rico and his exploits in
the Mobile Infantry, a futuristic military unit. Rico's military career
progresses from recruit to non-commissioned officer and finally to
officer against the backdrop of an interstellar war between mankind and
an arachnoid species known as "the Bugs".
Starship Troopers was nominated for an Academy Award (visual effects)
in 1998. The film has attracted controversy and criticism for its
social and political themes, which some critics claim promote
militarism; and for its distortion and misrepresentation of the novel
whose name it bears. The film received mostly positive reviews from
major movie critics.

Troopers polarized both popular audiences and critics, as did the
original book. A prominent theme of the film is the human practice of
senseless violence without reflection or empathy, which parallels the
senseless aggression of the "Bugs". As such, the movie attracted widely
divergent responses. This is reflected by a mixed critical response,
receiving a 62% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Starship Troopers
was nominated for a number of awards in 1998 which included a
nomination for the Academy Award for Visual Effects, and won Saturn
Awards for Best Costumes and Best Special Effects at the 1998 Academy
of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, USA Awards. The movie
earned over $22 million on its opening weekend and has a grossed a
total of $121,214,377 worldwide.
