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.

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.

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

An overview of an intensely passionate life as few film-makers could bring it to the screen.

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.

If you like good war films, if you like good history epics, if you like good romances and good stories with great performances, then this film won't disappoint.

State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

Bad cinematic and casting choices abound, but what keeps it compelling and watchable is Oliver Stone's keen eye for how youthful, talented men live fast and die young.

It occasionally fumbles and it sometimes feels downright hokey, but it cumulatively earns a feeling of gravity and reverence that fully justifies its extended running time.

Alexander is an Oliver Stone movie first and an historical/action epic second.

It's just a wild, glorious, wacky mess that I found really entertaining.

I would rather be bored learning about the history of Alexander the Great than enthralled by the exploits of Spider Man. Your mileage may vary.

Monumentally ambitious, Oliver Stone's Alexander accomplishes the twin objectives of the epic biopic.

[Alexander] is too long and lacks the action needed to sustain the attention required.

Even when I didn't like Alexander, I was aware that this is a serious work by a forceful and important filmmaker with a distinctive tone of voice.

If you're in the mood for a lavishly mounted, well-researched evocation of a distant time and place, featuring a charismatic cast and stunning battle scenes, Alexander will satisfy your needs very nicely.

The epic Troy [&] King Arthur wanted to be.The difference is that Oliver Stone has a clear vision.He knows you can't do everything & he knows what he wants.

Often skates dangerously close to camp (less forgiving viewers will find the movie hysterical), but the director's daringness to play things so boldly has a grand appeal of its own.
