Synopsis:
Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone presents a breathtaking new cut of his sweeping epic film Alexander, the true story of the world's greatest warrior. Using footage never seen and dramatically reshaping dozens of scenes, he brings to life the overpowering forces and fierce personalities that forever changed history. Driven by a craving for his father's (Val Kilmer) love and the brutal ambition of his mother (Angelina Jolie), Alexander (Colin Farrell) faced massive armies in Persia, Afghanistan and India and was never defeated.

what was this, hollywood idea? - Alexander review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
13/10/2005

colin farrell`s accent, still irish, but his caracter was not, Angelina Jolies accent changed about four time from bad russian to strange persian, action scenes ok, but over blown, not as accurate as expected from oliver stone, but if you like comedy and have 2hrs 40 minutes to spare then worth a look with a few cans and some friends.

Terrible - Alexander review by CP Customer

Way too much hype. I found the film immensely tedious. It sent me to sleep both times I tried to watch it.

Alexander - Alexander review by Cherry

Spoiler Alert
14/08/2006

A historical epic in the style of Troy and Gladiator, the film looks fantastic, and from the extra commentary, does appear to have been researched fully. Whilst so much effort was put into making it as historically accurate to Alexander The Great's life as possible, it was incredible to hear several dreadful Irish accents creeping in. Why that was allowed is a mystery, nevertheless, the film is strangely gripping, and the possibility of Alexander's homosexuality also gives the film a darker edge.
