A black op has gone terribly wrong. Now, Captain Carmen Ibanez and a hardcore trooper famed as Major Henry "Hero" Varro must lead a team of battle-weary troopers to find the missing ship and discover what went wrong.
Mysterious monstrous alien creatures attack Earth's colonies. This six-part OVA focuses on Juan "Johnnie" Rico who joins the army because of Carmen, a girl he likes, his days in boot camps, his losses and Earth's first counterattack.
We are sent back to the battlefield, as the Federation's best Mobile Infantry unit are slowly being overpowered by the killer bugs. They are light years from the nearest reinforcements and are trapped on a remote outpost. They set up protection around the post, keeping all the bugs waiting for them to leave. But now the enemy is in the outpost, in a way which they would have never thought of.Written by
Clancy Brown was asked to reprise his role of Sgt. Zim from the first movie, but he was unavailable due to his commitment to Carnivàle (2003). The part of Zim was then re-written as a new character, Capt. Dax, played by Richard Burgi. See more »
When Dax says "Murderer's don't go home," his mouth stops moving half way through. See more »

This movie is unwatchable. I found every single feature of it to be revolting.
For one, we have the effects. Every single bullet shot is a lame CGed blue pulse.
Two, they obviously didn't have anybody research military tactics. When the bugs are about to attack, instead of holding out inside the base and killing the bugs in hemmed-in territory (a la Sun Tsu), they move outside the base and massively expand their front. When the troops send a runner to inform someone that the bugs were coming, they send a heavy weapons operator, complete with his heavy gun.
Moreover, the behavior of the General is completely stupid. He acts like a Corporal at BEST.
The music is VERY poorly chosen, and never fits the scenes. Foreshadowing is very overt. Even the directing is shoddy... when the psychic fellow hallucinates, they use very ambiguous effects to signify it.
Please, avoid this movie at ALL COSTS. I swear, it couldn't have cost more than $50,000 to make...
