||A Robert A Heinline book
||When a race of alien insects attack South America, earth sends a vast fleet of space craft to attack their home planet, with an army of well trained young people who land to take on the bugs.
||This film is apparently “ironically fascist like”, with young people ready to die for the cause, so we see the training, and the action which includes some nudity, some sex and a lot of extremely bloody violence with dismembered bodies, and some explosions in space as the fleet is attacked.
||This film is poorly acted and initially boring. Every script seems to require the recruit training. The final scenes are impressive although I found myself asking questions for which the script did not provide answers. Dean Norris of “Breaking Bad” has a small role.
