STARSHIP TROOPER I Cult After Dark I The Vic Theatre

November 25, 2023 @ 9:30 pm11:30 pm

In director Paul Verhoeven’s distant future, humanity confronts a terrifying alien threat in a relentless interstellar war. Like his earlier film Robocop, Starship Troopers is part action movie, part satirical deconstruction of authoritarianism. The cult classic follows the tumultuous journey of Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) and his fellow young recruits as they work to earn their citizenship by going to war with “the bugs”. With a star-studded ensemble, including Dina Meyer, Denise Richards, and Dougie Howser himself, Neil Patrick Harris, the film explores the values of their semi-fascist society while providing some incredible battle sequences and emotional peaks.
