Alexander The Great was a relentless conqueror who by the age of 32 had amassed the greatest empire the world had ever seen. Past and present collide to form the puzzle of the protagonist, a tapestry of triumphs and tragedies in which childhood memories and Alexander's rise to power unfold side by side with the later day expansion of his empire, its gradual decline and ultimate downfall. From his youth, fueled by dreams of glory and adventure, to his lonely and mysterious death as a ruler of a vast state, from the tumultuous relationship with his parents - a powerful king and a queen determined to put her child on the throne at any cost, including murder - to the rousing "band of brothers" bond with his closest companions and vast army, as they fought from the sun-scorched battlefields of the Persian Empire across the snow-peaked mountains of India, the film chronicles Alexander's journey to become a living legend.
Not so great by all accounts. And what's with it with Colin Farrell. The guy's a fairly average actor who seems to have lucked in with the big boys. Thinks he's Al or Bobby. He ain't.

Though I suspect that as the years pass, the movie will be reassesed as a camp classic packed with unintenionally hilarity. And how can any movie with Brian Blessed, Tim Piggot-Smith be all bad.
