This is one of Paul Verhoeven's better movies, reminding us more of Total Recall than Basic Instinct, a film I just didn't get.
The story is based on a vastly superior novel, and had Verhoeven been able to secure a greater budget to actually make the Mobile Infantry appear as they did in the book then this may have been one of the best sci-fi films you'll ever see.
The whole Nazi-like Federation is brilliantly represented here, with that guy from Dougie Howser, child prodigy, looking swell as the psy-ops specialist in his trench-coat.
The action is fast and furious, the heroes all square jawed GI Joe types and the ladies quite attractive on the eye, in most cases that is.
If you just turn of your mind for most of the film and enjoy it for the slapstick no brain actioner it is then there's nothing about this movie you won't enjoy.
