The film is heavily indebted to Mary Renault's Fire from Heaven and The Persian Boy, and anyone interested would do better to read those.

What a disaster. Oliver Stone has outdone himself again and turned the story of Alexander the Great into a tiresome two-hour long soap opera which looks like a gay porno. Colin Farrell's acting is so bad that you forget to ask why the Macedonians all talk with Scottish accents. Alexander's 'inspiring' speech to his men near the end of the film is the only high point. Farrell's overacting in this scene will make you laugh all your frustrations away!

Don't Bother My Movie Rating: Red Star 1 / 10

This is what I call a semi-boy movie. That is because the boy actor only appears at the beginning of the film usually playing the main character as a child. That is why I cannot award it any more than half the stars for Connor Paolo's wonderful performance as the young Alexander. Technical flaw: Boys wrestling in ancient Greece fought naked ... god forbid such things should be shown on a cinema screen. Did boys at that time attend school in white togas and sandals? Who knows? Great school uniform if they did. Connor had his hair dyed blond I think but looked most attractive on screen.
