Pretty good, but couldn't warm up to it., 4 December 2004
Author: MovieAddict2016 from UK

Some of the interviews I found annoying. They should have focused less on the writers and more on the stars and directors. Too much time is spent focusing on the story behind the original film - i.e., pre-production - and by the time it gets around to the production aspect, and the sequels, etc., time has run out so they try to wrap everything up far too quickly.

I first caught this after a UK broadcast of ALIEN - it was featured after the film was over and I was eager to see it because I think Mark Kermode is a pretty good critic and always has something interesting to say.

But overall it's just a bit too superficial and annoying to consider deep - the other documentaries on the ALIEN Quadrilogy are much better.
