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
