Verhoeven's classic sci-fi actioner is in part a hugely satirical swipe at his adopted homeland's foreign policy, but it's also just an excuse for Verhoeven and effects supervisor Phil Tippett to tip a big box of CGI all over the floor. Fans of the book were livid at the story changes, but the computerised bugs are viscerally nasty. Great fun.
