In a world in which Hollywood's cash cow is worse sequels to bad movies, the rare occasion of a movie that appears to involve some thought is a rare joy. One such movie is Lord of War (2005), an insightful commentary on arms sales disguised as a drama. As a movie, it was less than amazing, but as food for thought, it was more than filling. In fact, the film is sufficiently true to real events (not least its indictment of the US Government as the largest arms dealer in the world) that they were unable to secure funding in the US and had to look overseas. Despite general critical acclaim, it was not nominated for any awards.
You're a Heinlein fan, and you've read Starship Troopers a million times, but maybe you didn't even bother to see the movie because it didn't have the armor. Your favorite vehicle in Macross is the Cyclone and you cheered every time bullets ricocheted off Robocop. You are a powered armor freak, and you need to read this book.
Now, there are reasons to read this book other than the simple involvement of powered armor. People who need more should continue reading; some people have already clicked over to buy the thing. They're making the right move, but they may not yet understand why. But why? Because this is one of the best science-fiction books ever written. I know that if more of you were less jaded by statements like that, I'd be getting boatloads of hatemail already, but I'm prepared to back up my statement.
