Movie Reviews

Worthy addition for Alien fans
S. Baker | Phoenix, Arizona United States | 10/21/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This two-hour documentary, narrated by John Hurt (who played the first "victim"), chronologically describes the production of all four films and compiles interviews with many of the principal players (H.R. Giger, Sigourney Weaver, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, etc.) The highlight is the first 50 minutes or so, which covers the groundbreaking first film, the development of the alien creature, the psychological aspects of the script, and the creation of the set. For those looking forward to the upcoming 'Alien: Director's Cut', there is even a discussion of the controversial deleted scene. Overall, I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the franchise."
Buy this with the 4-two disk sets and you have the ultimate

"Buy this, along with the 4 2 disk Alien movies, and you've made your own VASTLY superior "Quadrilogy". This is far better and more fun to watch than the Quad 9th disk."
Fantastic chronology!

"This is a fabulous sequencing of the movies, giving details on casting, interviews, and set design that no other special dvds have done. It contains material you will not see in the sets or the 9th Legacy disk. The best "extra" disk I have none, because it does so in a interesting and well paced manner. A must for true fans."
Well rounded...

"Since I own the Alien Quadrilogy, I was curious as to exactly what this could add to the massive amount of info already included in the Quad collection. Woud it simply be a rehash of old material? So I bought it and was pleasantly surprised. While more actor interviews would have been nice (ol Yaphet Kotto is still as elusive as ever) it's a very good documentary. I enjoyed it quite a bit although I had no idea how old it was. Watching it knowing that it's pre-AVP & AVPR, it's an interesting perspective. But being a completist I had to get it and I don't regret doing so. I recommend it to all Alien fans."
