A Bit Too Pompous
22 May 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I don`t know what to think of Mark Kermode as a critic , he`s far better than the egocentric and sycophantic Johnathan Ross but nowhere near as good as the brilliant and witty Barry Norman . Kermode lacks the sense of humour needed for being a truly great film critic , but in this case he`s probably the most appropiate presenter for this documentary

ALIEN EVOLUTION could have been one of those tedious features with a bunch of thespians gibbering on about how honoured they were to work with a great director . Thankfully this is not the case , but that doesn`t mean it`s a classic documentary . Structured on themes like ` Ancestors ` Gestation ` and ` Birth ` directors , screenwriters , designers and actors discuss the concept , subtext and progression of the ALIEN saga , but this is where it`s flawed . Films are all about making money but you`d think it was some sort of intellectual art form the way the cast and crew talk about the first two movies " It`s the ultimate form of rape " etc . They do confess that the latter two films are indeed about money , but these two films only take up a very small percentage of recollections which is a pity because I was wondering how the people involved in the making of the original film feel about the series becoming one very dumb excuse in making money ? I guess talking about art is more important than talking about money , but it does strike me as being slightly dishonest . And there`s not enough info on the umpteen rejected storylines for ALIEN 3

One word of warning : Several scenes feature strobing light effects which may trigger fits amongst people suffering from photo sensitive epilepsy . Satillite stations warn viewers about this before they broadcast films , TV shows and pop videos , but for some reason network never does this .
