Arvin Sloane: So easy for you to blame me, huh? When you know the truth. You got your own men killed. That helicopter was waiting for you...
McKenas Cole: I had a man down! I was saving Whitney's life. You know that!
Arvin Sloane: Yeah, at the expense of all the other men. Those men counted on you to lead them to safety. They trusted their life to you and you led them to slaughter.

"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.
