The picture is so thoroughly ridiculous, it's hard to know where to begin in listing its infelicities. But I'll try.
March 6, 2005
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.

The film's sense of drama and tension makes the experience alive and palpable.
February 16, 2005
An overview of an intensely passionate life as few film-makers could bring it to the screen.
January 24, 2005
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.

January 17, 2005
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.
January 15, 2005
Colin Farrell is woefully miscast in the lead, but that's the least of Alexander's problems because the film is a disaster on an epic scale: sprawling, messy, incoherent and an early contender for one of the worst movies of 2005.

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.
January 13, 2005
Oliver Stone revela uma decepcionante tendência para o melodrama.

January 5, 2005
Overly-verbose; one of the year's 10 worst
January 3, 2005
Despite flashes of vivid imagery and charisma, Alexanderis nowhere close to 'great'.

Much like this hero, who is confused and lacks a center, Stone's epic story does not have a core to its vision, too often drifting aimlessly through time and space.

As the titular conqueror, Colin Farrell shows the limit of his screen presence as he falters in such big boots and winds up face first in the sand.

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.

It's all Greek to me

December 14, 2004
An unmitigated disaster, Oliver Stone's sprawling Alexander is an unbearable 173 minute alternative to Chinese water torture.

December 10, 2004
A lunk-headed train wreck that looks like a tag sale in a 323 B.C. supermarket in old Peking.
December 10, 2004
At a reported cost of $155 million, Alexander qualifies as a super-spectacle in every respect but one -- namely in its neurotic, confused and sexually ambidextrous hero.
December 10, 2004
Alexander goes on far too long, and Colin Farrell as the military leader just doesn't live up to the high praise given him in the opening scenes.

December 10, 2004
Much like the title character himself, this is an endeavor that strives for greatness but is too burdened by its own ego to live out the full potential.
