This is an insult to Alexander the Great. An overlong,
miscast and boring mess which, considering the source material, should have been an awful lot better. This is just plain awful.
Alexander The Great was Macedonian, but Colin Farrell
plays him as if he's just stumbled out of a Dublin bar, Angelina Jolie sounds more like Vlad the Impaler than Queen Olympias and Val Kilmer is also quite terrible, but also quite
unrecognisable so he can spare his blushes a lot easier than the forementioned. The best actors in this are probably the horses.
There was enough potential in the history and legend
surrounding the character to make this at least a half-decent movie, but it almost sent me to sleep a few times and when I closed my eyes it sounded like a bar fight on St. Patrick's
The fact that Troy is better than this mulch is bad
enough. This is a pathetic excuse for a movie. Amongst the worst films of 2004 and possibly the decade.
