EXCELLENT!!!A MUST SEE OLIVER STONE MOVIE Posted by: from: OKLAHOMA on I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A OLIVER STONE FAN AND THIS WAS GREAT. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT WAS NOT WELL RECIEVED AT THE THEATERS. THE LENGTH OF THE MOVIE MAY BE LONG FOR SOME, BUT TO TELL THIS STORY AS HE DID - THE TIME IS GOOD. THIS MOVIE SHOWS A TRUTH, THAT THERE WAS FEAR BEFORE BATTLES AND THAT ALEXANDER DID GO TO BATTLE WITH HIS TROOPS AND NOT JUST TELL THEM WHAT TO DO - HE WAS WOUNDED SEVERAL TIMES DURING BATTLE. THIS IS A WONDERRFUL WAY TO LEARN MORE OF HISTORY THAN JUST READING. THE HISTORY COMES ALIVE AND FOLLOWS WELL. ALEXANDER'S VISION OF EXPANDING TO THE EAST AND SEARCHING TO THE GREAT OUTER SEA IS SHOWN WITH ALL THE HARDSHIPS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN ENDURED. THE PORTRAYAL OF ALEXANDER IS SHOWN AS TRUE TO HISTORY - HIS HUMANITY WHERE HE GAVE TO HIS MEN AND WOMEN, AND TO THE CULTURES THAT HE OVER TOOK; HIS PERSONNAL RELATIONSHIPS (LOVE INTEREST) BOTH MEN AND WOMEN. THIS MOVIE FOLLOWS HIS LIFE FROM A YOUNG BOY TILL HIS DEATH, IN A REMEMBERANCE FORM AND GIVES A REASON TO THE HOW'S AND WHY'S OF HIS ACTIONS THROUGHOUT HIS SHORT LIFE (33 Y/O). THE PERFORMANCES BY COLIN FARRELL AS ALEXANDER AND JARED LETO AS HEPHAESTION ARE UNPARALLELED.

Excellent movie!!! Posted by: from: Winston-Salem, NC on This is a great depiction of the life and times of Alexander the Great, my wife and I love it! It's brilliantly directed by Oliver Stone and Colin Farrell is outstanding as Alexander. It has a great cast including Angelina Jolie, Val Kilmer, Jared Leto, and Anthony Hopkins. Oliver Stone does a great job of making his true story films as accurate as possible, (just like JFK, The Doors, Nixon, etc.) This version of the film is the best and most complete. I highly recommend this film! Also, some other great films that are similar are Gladiator, Troy, and Kingdom of Heaven.

Horrible Posted by: from: LV, NV on Horrible movie. Ollie Stone re-writing history again. Overlong and terrible acting by Colin who is usually much better than this. Val Kilmer is the only good thing in the movie.
