THE PLOT:

The bugs are back yet again. When religion and peace movement hits the Federation, and a major defeat on the outer rim places Colonel Johnny Rico in the hangman's noose, they discover a horrible secret that left the Sky Marshal on a desert planet crawling with bugs and it's up to the secretly pardon Rico to save them.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, I got to admit that this was better then the second movie, early on I started wondering about this future and if it would be a world I want to live in, but I thought that in the first movie as well. Apparently they punishment for everything is hanging in that future, I pity the litter bug who gets caught. But the new bugs are cool and the story works. The cast is amazing for a made for DVD movie and all and all better then part 2 and worthy of 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I too had issues with the early part of the movie but it grew on me and even though it had minor character issues and was wondering if the Nazi party took over in this future because of the Eagle, and also was wondering who started the war. But the movie is intense, fun of action and frights. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ EFFECTS (Amazing creature effects as always.)
+ STORY (Has some minor issues early on but they work themselves out.)
+ CHARACTERS (Most of the characters are likable.)
+ NEW BUGS (Cool new bug monsters.)
+ MARAUDERS (VOLTRON'S favorite, the MECHS.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- MINOR STORY ISSUES (Hanging for every offense is a tad steep.)
- CHARACTER ISSUES (Some of the characters had flaws that was annoying.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on the first two movies, then this isn't for you.)
