YMMV: Starship Troopers: Invasion
  • Awesome Music: The ending song, Another Perfect Day.
  • Even Better Sequel: 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 Marauder is better than what the third movie did with them. The bugs haven't looked this good since the original, either.
    • 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. Because of the massive subversion of Black Guy Dies First, you're almost sure to be wrong.
  • So Cool It's Awesome
  • Special Effects Failure: The human faces are high-quality, but not quite high enough to convey much in the way of emotion. Most reactions fall into Dull Surprise territory, and it's rather hard to tell based on the helmeted face alone who is in the process of being killed. The reasoning for putting various troopers' names on the front of their armor makes a lot of sense, given this problem.
