Starship Troopers (1997)
Starring Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer , Denise Richards
In the 24st century, a hard-line federation imposes a reign of order and virtue upon the Earth, relentlessly exhorting its youth to conflict, duty and self-sacrifice.
Verhoeven takes an opposite line to the novel, which was somewhat militarist and patriotic. He turns his war film into a film that is anti-war, exposing the horror of warfare and the cynicism of its generals. He mixes the clichés and conventions of military propaganda, US teenage sitcom (Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer starred in Beverly Hills; Denise Richards and Patrick Muldoon in Melrose Place), war films and science fiction.
