Are you actually holding up Starship Troopers II as an example of an original film that has been copied?
No not at all. I was only using the plot of STII as an example: trapped on a remote outpost fighting off aliens attacking them within the outpost just like Aliens
Look its a genre and I get that. I think it started with Alien (1979) where an alien is coming to attack the humans within a large complex/facility. Resident Evil
(2002) has the same genre idea
just not with aliens.
