Making- of- the- movie
books: bit pointless nowadays, aren’t they? Why read one when there’ll probably be a nine- part featurette on the Blu- ray? And who wants to read actors describing their characters after you’ve seen the film?
Fortunately, in the case of this spoiler- spraying survey, that’s not the whole story. Though it won’t keep you occupied for long ( two hours should cover it), this large- format book has one great strength: concept art, and plenty of it, quite often sprawling across a double- page spread. Panoramas of resistance fighters battling hunter- killers; sleek, shiny “spider- tank” designs; a Frankfrom-Hellraiser- esque T- 3000 shooting a deathly glare… it’s like giving your eyeballs a holiday.
Whether it’s worth paying upwards of £ 23 for the privilege, mind you, is another matter. Calvin Baxter
