I should know by now not to doubt paul verhoeven. I was going into this skeptical because I have a generally unfavorable opinion towards arnold schwarzenegger but he's pretty incredible here. probably one of the most visually iconographic movies ive seen, pretty much every sci fi visual representation that came after this is influenced by it in some way. it's not as hard hitting or epic as starship troopers but it's certainly just as much fun.
