1997. USA. Dir: Paul Verhoeven. With Casper Van Dien, Denise Richards. 129 min.
When a meteor launched by giant killer space-bugs destroys Buenos Aires, it’s up to a leatherneck ranger, a hot-shot pilot, and a psychic Neil Patrick Harris to save humanity. Verhoeven’s vision of our fascistic future is both a big dumb action flick full of beautiful young people and a prescient satire of American foreign policy with a nod to old propaganda films.
