"Star Troop": the actors and their roles in the film
At one time, a fantastic movie “Star Troopers” made a real sensation in cinema. The actors have put a lot of effort into this, because it is thanks to their game that the picture not only fascinates, but makes them empathize with the main characters.
The film is not for nothing that is still interesting and exciting. The plot of the film tells about the ruthless war between humanity (represented by the United Civic Federation) and arachnids - insect-like intelligent creatures. He was nominated for an Oscar for best special effects, and also won the Saturn Award for Best Costume Design. But the audience is most interested in the main characters of the movie.
In the movie “Star Troopers” the actors who performed the main roles were not stars.
- Casper Van Dien, who played the role of the protagonist John Rico. After 11 years, Casper re-played the role of a fighter of the United Civil Federation.Unfortunately, nothing more outstanding in the cinema, he no longer distinguished himself.
- Denise Richards, the performer of the role of Carmen Ibáñez - pilot of the interstellar spacecraft and part-time lover of John Rico.
- Dina Meyer played the role of ordinary Dizzy Flores. The heroine is probably remembered by the majority of viewers by the fact that she appeared on the screen completely naked, and even in the male soul. So the writers wanted to show the equality of all military personnel.
In the movie “Star Troopers”, the actors remembered the public, but only those who played the main roles. Few people remembered and minor characters.
But one of the main characters can not be counted as Gene Rascheka, played by Michael Ironside. His character is remembered by us from the scene, where he without hesitation kills a recruit from a sniper rifle who was captured by arachnid.
In the movie "Star Troop" the actors who played less significant, but from no less vivid characters, also made a lot of effort to make their characters convincing to the public.
- Jake Busey played the fair-haired private Ace Levy.One of the most aggressive heroes, who subsequently proves his courage and causes sympathy among the audience.
- Neil Patrick Harris played the role of psychic Carl Jenkins. It occupies a significant place in the understanding of the plot of the film, but does not appear on the screen so often.
- Patrick Muldoon realized his talent in the image of Lieutenant Zander Barkallow, in love with Carmen Ibáñez. At the end of the film, he proves the purity of his feelings by sacrificing himself to save his beloved.
Throughout the film “Star Troopers”, the actors and roles merge into the audience perception. However, only a few viewers were able to understand the main idea of the film.
The main idea of the film
To understand the main idea of the film, it is enough to analyze the events described in it. There is a distant future in the courtyard, military democracy has been established on Earth, and humanity is looking for new planets for colonization. One of these is the birthplace of arachnids, which humanity is ready to destroy, just to establish its dominance.
If you look at the picture from this angle, then insect-like aliens no longer act as aggressors, but as desperately defending patriots who are trying in every way to stop the conquerors.
Tells us about the complete devaluation of moral values, the victory of money over the burden of knowledge and even the formation of a new kind of fascism, the film “Star Troopers”. Actors and roles (photos are given in the article) are largely due to such a deep idea and interesting to viewers.
