We gave it a C-

Oliver Stone directs this ancient-world epic with a startling lack of personality or vision. As Alexander, Colin Farrell has no dynamism, no interior force; he’s grand in theory but hollow at the center. A battle set in an Indian forest is the only sequence touched by Stone’s ferocity.
