A true documentary work of art
22 January 2005 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

Before this documentary, I truly detested this installment. I couldn't stand it, and refused to accept it under any circumstances. However, this Making of documentary truly gives you all the answers to everything from the big problems to your most trivial questions in such a way as to help you understand why each decision was made, how it was expected to affect the work, whether it did bring about the desired result, and what they had as a back-up plan.

In fact, it completely changed my opinion concerning the value of the film.

I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who has issues with Alien: Resurrection (Alien 4), as a means of understanding the issues behind the scenes which effected and affected this installment of the Alien Quadrilogy. Completely inclusive and definitive, this is truly a documentary work of art.

It rates a 10/10 from...
