Oliver Stone re-creates the towering, true story of Alexander the Great (Colin Farrell), who, in the 4th Century BC, conquered Greece, Persia, Afghanistan and India – 90% of the "Known World." Against massive armies of chariots and elephants, he never lost a battle! Visionary, explorer, dreamer – he was also a tender son, torn by his mother's (Angelina Jolie) burning love and ambition and desperate for his father's (Val Kilmer) approval. His dream shaped the world we live in today.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Even at nearly three hours long, this ponderous, talky, and emotionally distant biopic fails to illuminate Alexander's life.
Alexander the person was great. This movie isn't.
