Razak's Roughnecks, the toughest marines to spatter a space bug across the interstellar landscape, return in the second feature-length collection from the cult TV series, a completely computer-animated space-age epic based on Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers. On the jungle planet Tesca, the Roughnecks confront a whole new array of bug soldiers, including web-spewing spiders and sea-based water tigers, as well as their own prejudices. Their newest squadmate is an alien and a former enemy, and a marine is not quick to forgive. Played out as a single movie, The Tesca Campaign has the feeling of a World War II platoon drama crossed with a Japanese space opera. The stylized CGI animation forgoes realism for dynamic direction, energetic action, and stylized designs, making for an impressive world of mechanical creations and insectoid creatures. The PG-level violence (there's a big bug body count) isn't appropriate for young children. --Sean Axmaker

From the Back Cover:

Get ready for more explosive adventures with Rico's Roughnecks as they battle deadly arachnids in their fight to keep mankind alive. Based on the book that inspired the hit movie, the Emmy-nominated Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles is acclaimed for both the purity of its sci-fi vision and for gorgeous, innovative computer-generated visuals.

Johnny Rico and his crew are furious when they find out they've been partnered up with the suspicious T'Phai to combat an infestation of alien bugs on Zegema Beach. But after Rico suffers a near-fatal attack by a Giant Spider Bug and T'Phai takes on a team of vicious Control Bugs and Tanker Worms, the two men and the Troopers realize if they want to survive, they're going to have to work together. Gathering their strength, weapons, and combat-tested skills, the team prepares to attack the most fearsome creatures in the universe for what they hope will be the last time. 95 minutes.
