NotesSet in a future where apparently our biggest threat is from giant alien bugs. An idealistic young trooper and a bright young woman help to change the outcome. Good fun film which follows pattern of boot camp to war, though the boot camp and the 'grunts' are much prettier than normal. It's also a variation of teens against terror. Their male Instructor is a below elbow amputee and the female instructor is blind with a scarred face. Later he wears a metal hand and is revealed as double leg amputee (??) Not such a bad film despite the Nazi-like uniforms. From the novel by Robert A. Heinlein
