This review is from: Alien Quadrilogy Deluxe Alien Head Limited Edition Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly I am a huge fan of all the alien films, including the 3rd and 4th films. What you get in the alien quadrilogy box set, just as you would if you bought it stand-alone. The alien head is empty when you receive it. I bought mine when it was limited edition so I got a certificate, however now I don't know. The alien head is about 45cm wide, from my measurements and is coated with velvet inside. The head itself is split into two halves, on is the see through head compartment, made entirely of plastic, which I have to say does come off quite clumsily, and the bottom half is the actual head, again made of plastic, it does not look as good as the picture as it is far more plasticy, but in my opinion it does look stunning, I have had mine about 8 months now and none of the disc are scratched on the inside, the velvet like fabric is very soft on them and with the disc inside propped up, it does look extremely cool and any alien fan will love it.
The films are stunning, the first two films are often hailed as some of the greatest films ever made, the first one is a horror very dark and claustrophobic, extremely tense and beautifully directed, whereas the second one is more action in true James Cameroon style, its fun and at times very tense, my favourite of the series. The third film is slated as is the fourth however I do like them, the directors cut version of the third film included is a lot better than the first cut, its claustrophobic and atmospheric but has a nice plot, its not the all out action you would expect however. Alien resurrection, may not have the best acting or the best looking aliens however its a great action film and worth the watch.
In all I would advise fans of the alien films to buy this if they like the look of it, its a very cool item, I would advise if people to look at it fist as it may not be as stunning as you may think, however I love it although it is very pricey.
