I wanted to see it because it looked so bad. I might go with a friend. I loathe Colin Farrell though.

I hear the sex scenes are kinda hot (even without Little Colin!)

um, i was kidding. i don't think there's more than three people here who'd like this film, but i'm certainly one of them.

if you don't get it, that's fine. only some of us elite folk would have the mind to.

It is a good film but damn....... I mean where was Bruce Willis and the explosions?!!? I mean there wasen't even a villain with an eyepatch or a laser gun or something! But there was a ghost or two there!

Elites suck!!!!

Oh yeah, that hair is horrid! I've only seen clips, but the hair was just revolting. Kinda like some awful 80's flashback hair...

I'm sure I will see it eventually because the US Marines here get semi-current releases a few months after they are out. They show them at their "house" and invite all the expats that want to go...sometimes my boyfriend and I go because hey, it's free and it's in English!

I am a Stone fan, may not agree with them from a historical perspective but they are good films - Alexander certainly did suck though.

well i just got in from seeing it, and i may be alone in this, but i actually somewhat enjoyed it.

it certainly was no Gladiator or Troy, but then again, it wasn't really meant to be. i think with the story of Alexander people come to expect massive epic battle scenes through the whole film, when in reality there were only two to speak of. the focus was on Alexander's personal life, something that never really is spoken about in history books.

i found it very interesting. it does seem to be a movie that you really should know a bit of Greek history before you go see it though. otherwise you would probably be very confused.

it was a bit long, and the scenes with ptolemy at the beginning and end seemed a little drawn out.

i did enjoy it though (so did my dad). i guess it's just meant more for certain people than others.

i think the weight of expectations on this movie to be high-action and epic battles somewhat did it in.

i'd give it 3.5 out of 5 stars if i had to rate it.

a good laugh for a bad movie
by saucsahuaman (movies profile) Nov 24, 2004
785 of 1098 people found this review helpful

where to start, I watched this movie with a very diverse crowd and we all could not help but to laugh at the diolog, acting and overall the horrible movie we were watching. The only part of the movie that was watchable was when there was a battle going on, but you could save your money and just watch the battles from Lord of the Rings since they were somewhat similar and better. Also,the recreation of Mesopotamia was pretty good. Besides that, the acting was sooo bad that during certain scenes that were supposed to be dramatic, they became funny because they were so over acted and ridiculous. You know its a bad movie when you and half the theater laughs when someone is dying in the movie.
