%%* RootingForTheEmpire: Completely abandon for ''Invasion''.** Furthermore, it pulls no punches when it comes to character deaths. Just try and guess who among the named troopers will survive after the climax. [[spoiler:Because of the massive subversion of BlackGuyDiesFirst, you're almost sure to be wrong.]]

* EvenBetterSequel: Compared to the previous two, at least.

* EvenBetterSequel: Compared to the previous two, at least. The boarding of the ''John A. Warden'' manages to feel more suspenseful than the second movie's failed attempt at being ''Aliens'', and even the brief screen-time afforded to the [[MiniMecha Marauder]] is better than what the third movie did with them. The bugs haven't looked this good since the original, either.



* SpecialEffectsFailure: In many ways.
** Every bug dies the exact same way.
** The lighting is either too bright or doesn't change. This makes it hard to see much of the textures.
** The humans are affected the worst. Their faces are perpetually in a state of DullSurprise and they barely [[HongKongDub match up to what the actors are saying]], and fall into the UncannyValley (especially around the mouths).

The lighting is either too bright or doesn't change. This makes it hard to see much of the textures.
** The humans are affected the worst. Their
human faces are perpetually high-quality, but not ''quite'' high enough to convey much in a state the way of emotion. Most reactions fall into DullSurprise territory, and they barely [[HongKongDub match up it's rather hard to what tell based on the actors are saying]], and fall into helmeted face alone who is in the UncannyValley (especially around process of being killed. The reasoning for putting various troopers' names on the mouths).
* UncannyValley
front of their armor makes a lot of sense, given this problem.

* HollywoodTactics: Not glaringly obvious like the first team, but a lot of casualties would have been averted if the fighting were done more properly.
** The Mobile Infantry squads are still grossly under-armed. Their primary weapon is assault rifles, even with BottomlessMagazines, still need several seconds to down a single bug, while they are constantly swarmed with dozens. Ratzass has a minigun, Trig has a sniper rifle, Varro has an underbarrel grenade launcher, and that's it. Varro doesn't even use his grenade launcher until the very end. Maybe they do have more advanced weapon which were lost or ammunition depleted in previous missions, but the movie never made it clear.
** As the Warden approached Earth and had to be intercepted, [[spoiler: the 3 intercepting ships flew on a straight line right in front of the Warden's main laser guns and predictably got blown up]].
** As Rico and his men are dropped to the crashed Warden, [[spoiler: they didn't even bother to spread out while air-borne, and most were wiped out mid-air. Rico only survived thanks to PlotArmor]].
* IdiotBall:
** Ship lost power, everyone's dead. Doesn't anyone in the rescue team suspect that the bugs might be waiting to ambush them? [[spoiler: They happily split up, doesn't bother to reinforce their position or create defensible choke points, and quite a number gets killed by the bug ambush]].
** Chow, who decides that[[spoiler:he will have better chances fighting bugs with punches and kicks and no helmet]].
