Alexander Reviews

Jeff Beck

This new set presents the film in great quality and comes with some fantastic special features, but it's doubtful that this latest version of "Alexander" is going to change anyone's mind as to the quality of the film itself.

For the lucky few that see this without ever having viewed the first cut, they may wonder what all the criticism was about in the first place.

Alexander the person was great. This movie isn't.

General mistakes all across the board contribute and reinforce each other to bring it down

This is ultimately "Alexander" as written by Danielle Steele...

Stone doesn't present characters that the audience can believe in, even for one moment, as representative of their historic roles.

This oracular piece of hero-worship is perhaps the squarest film yet from this once-hip director.

Stone gives us some truly stirring visuals, music that soars and charges more often than not, and, um, performances that . . . Well, um, okay, about those performances . . .

Unwieldy and flawed, but Stone remains a tornado in an era of airless formula and -- to paraphrase our Ptolemy -- its failings are greater than most films' successes.

Interesting but flawed film about a fascinating character.

By summoning his inner classicist, [director] Stone has made an excruciating disaster for the ages.

'Como obra cinematográfica, no es la pésima cinta que han destrozado. Es la simple interpretación de un talentoso cineasta sobre la vida de una leyenda de la humanidad'

The picture is so thoroughly ridiculous, it's hard to know where to begin in listing its infelicities. But I'll try.

Though the battles have the blood-and-sinew bravado you expect from Oliver Stone, this three-hour buttnumbathon is hamstrung by a hectoring grandiosity, not new to Stone, and a nod toward caution, which is.

| Original Score: 1/4

The film's sense of drama and tension makes the experience alive and palpable.

Big, grand, messy. If you enjoy a nice slice of Hollywood miscalculation every now and then--and who doesn't--you might have a good time.

A garbled, over-stuffed turkey force fed with historical events until its liver explodes in a spectacularly colourful and violent bloodbath, tempered with sinewy speeches.

By the time its three hours are over, you will feel as exhausted as Alexander at the end of his epic campaign - but not as enriched.
