Starship Troopers is a science fiction action-warfare film that has a satirical edge-the fascist and TV-addled humans and a vicious species of insect are locked in a brutal, unrelenting battle for supremacy and survival as colonization expands further outward into space. The story follows a dedicated group of young warriors as they go deeper into enemy "bug" territory and try to eradicate the menace who turns out to be smarter, deadlier and more driven than they had imagined. Fun for fans of Casper Van Dien, Denise Richardson, Michal Ironside and Dina Meyer among others as well as anyone who'd enjoy a bloody near-nonstop brawl between monsters and people.Erik M.
Continuity mistake: Toward the end, Carmen Ibanez gets stabbed through the shoulder when she is brought before the big master alien thing. If you were to sustain such an injury, there would be so much swelling, not to mention just destroyed tissue, that you wouldn't be able to move that arm for weeks. Yet a few minutes later, she is seen hefting around a very large assault rifle, and seems to have no difficulty. I guess it's a pretty standard action movie "heroes can temporarily ignore injury in order to save the day" kind of oversight, but it just seems exaggerated in this case, considering how severe the shoulder trauma looked.

Trivia: The view that people acquired citizenship and the right to vote through military service reflected the views of "Starship Troopers" author Robert Heinlein. His views were influenced by his years in military service during World War II, and what he saw as the supposed "laziness" of civilians.megamii
Question: What's going on with Rico and Carl in the card guessing scene? I originally thought Rico was trying to guess the value of the unturned card was but then he says it's the ace of spades and it turns out to be exactly that yet he still gets it wrong. Could someone please explain what's happening there?
