Did You Know?


In season 1 when Will Tippin (Bradley Cooper) is down in the docks snooping around, he passes a freighter ship. The name of the ship is "Alba Varden", that is also the name of the ship from "Lethal Weapon 2" where the final battle takes place. See more »


(at around 1 min) There is a scene with a ship yard, which Will Tippin is investigating. This shot of the shipyard was not actually filmed for Alias. It is in-fact a shot from Lethal Weapon 2. If you look carefully, this can be explained by the Name and Location of the ship; The Alba Varden, out of Hamburg and the 2 figures standing by the shipping container to the right of the ship. Look towards the end of Lethal Weapon 2 and you'll notice the exact same shot. See more »


Vaughn: Let's take things one step at a time. This is a charge of C4. I can tell because there's 'C4' written all over it.

"Alias" goes "Die Hard"
3 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

A team of high-tech mercenaries, headed by Cole (special guest star Quentin Tarantino!), a freelance agent who had been employed by SD-6 5 years earlier and abandoned to enemy hands after the completion of his mission, invades the SD-6 headquarters and holds everyone hostage. Their goal is to take away something that is kept in the SD-6 vaults, and Cole is prepared to torture Sloane to get him to reveal the code of entry. Being at the elevator at the critical moment of the attack, Sydney and her father are now trapped in the building, and must find a way to stay undetected by the invaders and save the day.

As you can probably see, the two-part "The Box" is clearly a reworking of the "Die Hard" formula, but let's face it, Sydney Bristow is sexier than John McClane - and not less tough or resourceful! Of course its main selling point is the guest appearance of Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino is by no means a great actor, however he does have a creepy, distinct screen presence that's suitable for the role he has here. "The Box" is 86 minutes of suspenseful television; the only scene that I felt was not so well-handled is the fate of the character played by the gorgeous Jennifer Tung. *** out of 4.
