3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but nothing amazingly new, 1 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alien Vault: The Definitive Story Behind the Film (Hardcover)
Great to see a few photos that I had never seen before, however being a massive fan of Alien and having owned pretty much every book there has been on the superb original first film, I was a little disaapointed there wasn't more new material. Being a 'vault' I hoped for a trove of new material but it didn't happen. Watching the documentaries on the Alien anthology dvd's will tell you pretty much everything in the book and a lot more. What I really wanted was something along the lines of the awesome book on the making of Empire Strikes Back by J.W.Rinzler. That's the definitive way to look back on the making of a genre defining movie. Worth having but only 3 stars from me.

Definitely agree - I was hoping for something of the quality of Rinzler's Making of Star Wars but unfortunately this doesn't reach those heights.
