I really don't know how else to put it: this book is just great! It contains lots of terrific behind-the-scenes-material: interviews with the creative personnel behind the camera and the actors in front of it, photographs, drawings, story board, ...! If you liked the movie "ALIEN: RESURRECTION" you have to buy this book!!! It'll make you see how much great work and effort was necessary to make Ripley's return possible! Having read this book you'll be able to enjoy the movie even more! This is the best of all the "ALIEN: RESURRECTION"-books!

Format: Paperback
A bit lightweight on the secrets and techniques being discussed, cinefex this ain't.There's lots of great colour pictures help this book feel like good value for money. The pictures of alternative Newborn designs are of particular interest as they are far superior to the white 'muppet' that appeared in the movie. The emphasis is firmly on the pictures rather than text descriptions of hwo the special effects were made and detailed discussions with the creators. It'd be a great book if it was as detailed as say 'alien the special effects'.

Format: Paperback
Yes, "Alien Resurrection" was the final stake to the heart of the original Alien franchise, but it didn't die without a lovely eulogy. This book is of surprisingly excellent quality. The paper is fine, high-gloss material, and its illustrations as well as layout are superior. It can be seen that the film boasted high production values, even though the script was written by an overworked team of chimps at a word processor. So obtain a copy, if you can, but...skip the film.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent addition to the collection of any Alien fan, big or small. It is jam packed with some really nice concept art, great behind the scenes shots covering all aspects of production, and some nice text to accompany the words. If you can find a cheap copy (and there are plenty of those floating around here and on eBay) it's totally worth it, especially if you're wanting to build up a collection.

That being said, the book speaks of the film in a way that makes you want to watch it, only to finally realize that in the end the final version of Alien Resurrection was just "okay." As an Alien fan it is my least favorite of the series and the ending was largely ambiguous; opening more plot holes in the series canon. If you have the Anthology on Blu-Ray, most of the material in this book is covered by it, but it's still a nice purchase nonetheless.
