Was this movie intending to be this insanely funny? Playing out something like a comic book with a satirical jab at our current government policies. The story takes place in the future where the military rules our world as a single fascist world government. Highschool kids are encourage to become “citizens” by joining the military and to fight the ever present war against a far off planet of insects. Johnny Rico our main dumb headed hero is played by Casper Van Dien. What mother names their son Casper? Does he have the ability to move through walls? Is he extremely pale? Anyways Rico is in love with Carmen (Dennis Richards) who has joined the military to become a fighter pilot and to apparently get away from Charlie Sheen. So what does a smart high school student like Rico decide? Well of course he decides not to go to college and insteads join the infantry to fight giant blood thirty insects. This is mainly done to impress Carmen. By the way these insects did’t actually invade earth, they are just chillin’ on another planet minding their own business when we come bustin’ in shooting up the place with our machine guns and mini nuke bombs. Our reason for doing the big Orkin job was apparently an asteroid hit earth and we blame it on the bugs who just happen to live a million miles away. I have no idea what this parallels in todays news. hmmmmm….. Apparently in the future we still haven’t developed phaser guns though unfortunately. Definitely a great action movie and some hilarious dialog and would fall into my top 5’s of movies for guys who like movies.
rated 7.6 out of 10
