(ag) wrote: This film had some real good footage, too help along a rather dry plot. I was also impressed with the film-makers ability to present a very neutral, non-judgmental outlook, while also keeping the movie interesting.
(it) wrote: pretty damn awful. terrible acting and a horrid script that the actors stumbled through, even michael madsen. the only decent thing about this film was the ski footage, which you can get better footage from any ski or snowboard documentary, like "first decent" which i highly recommend
(br) wrote: Lots of hardcore action and gunplay to be found in this action thriller!
(gb) wrote: Great start to the film, I loved the late night tv show idea. the movie itself was okay. it was filmed a bit strange, I loved the editing but I would just have to give it two stars because it was a bit boring and strange. The vampires also acted more like zombies.
(br) wrote: I am going to be the one dissenting review. This was a good (but not outstanding) movie, and a very different movie from the first and third Starship troopers. More like an Alien (ala Sigourney Weaver ) horror film than a military adventure. I also think it is unfortunate that no one understands or appreciates the satirical portrayal (i.e. making fun) of fascism in these movies. One criticism I do have with all three movies is they it do not do the original book by Robert A. Heinlein any justice at all. That book is a must read classic; very, very different from the movies.

(us) wrote: Even though the movie opens with the slaughter of about a dozen innocent women and children, "Messenger of Death" is something of a departure for star Charles Bronson in a couple of different ways. First off, it begs to be taken seriously by dealing with Mormons and their beliefs, even though as the film goes on that angle proves to be a red herring into the investigation.Secondly, Bronson plays a reporter and oddly enough doesn't kill anyone in the picture, although after about an hour of this dull and talky mess you may secretly be hoping for the actor's return to form. For all of its characters and plot developments, the motivation behind the crimes is disappointingly simple dealing with greed and land rights. All the good the movie does in trying to establish as something different is undone thanks to a weak script and casting of the supporting characters. Even the star looks bored through most of this.J. Lee Thompson has made some of his better efforts throughout this decade, but this is not one of them. The filmmaker took ill halfway into the filming of this and was hastily replaced by the second unit director, and that shows. What little action is present consists of a couple of lame car chases and one of the worst shoot-outs in recent memory. It looks like it was choreographed by a blind guy. In fact, the entire film has the look and feel of a television project, especially when it comes to the lazy score."Messenger of Death" has a few minutes of promise that is quickly squandered as it descends into typical B-movie cliches and familiarity.
