Overview

Unlike the previous two discs of The Alien Legacy Box Set, this one is not loaded with special features, but the audio and video transfers are as well done, if not better than the others. Both have been digitally remastered in THX and make excellent use of home-theater capabilities. The soundtrack is a very strong 5.1 mix which makes pronounced, frequent use of the rear channels, adding a great deal of atmosphere to the already claustrophobic nature of the film; voices echo eerily, and lingering, ambient sounds permeate almost every moment. The video transfer is pristine, with not a single instance of graininess or pixilation to be found anywhere. Also, the lines are sharp and the colors clearly defined -- there is very little to no bleeding to be found here. This film relies heavily on shadow and darkness to maintain its suspenseful atmosphere, and it seems that the disc's producers kept this well in mind, mixing the blacks as dark as possible while still maintaining subtle details within them. Again, the extra features are nothing extraordinary; the only feature worthy of special note is a short making-of featurette, which contains interviews with many of the cast and crew. There are also theatrical trailers for all four Alien films, as well as a preview of the video game based on Alien Resurrection, the fourth film in the series. Despite the lack of extraordinary special features, the disc's superb transfer make it a worthy addition to any collection.
