The sound is perfect, the cast is perfect. Angelina Jolie's accent could perhaps have been slightly more perfected, but except from that... She was amazing. She gave the character Olympias a completely new face. A better one. The art direction is exquisite! The scenes makes you dream. You really wish you were there to feel the breeze, to smell the air, to touch the sand. And Colin... WOW! He took classes in leadership actually, and they paid of. He could almost have been the great Alexander himself.
(May contain Spoiler!) And now, to the one thing most people who didn't enjoy this movie reject to; the homosexuality. Yes, Alexander was a bisexual. And no, the movie is not full of gay porn where did you even get that idea?! It contains a few hugs and a kiss, is that too much? Come on! This is ancient Greece! The love between two men were... Beautiful! THAT was the true love. The love between a man and a woman? No. A man had to have a woman to pass his family name on. A woman was a machine to give him sons. Face it. A man was worth everything, and a woman just..was not. Because of this, naturally love between to men, saying the love between two of those who were worth something, was far more beautiful. And how is it that we can fill our films with sex scenes that aren't even important, while a few hugs and one single kiss can cause a riot? Just because it was between two males. Even though this was such an important part of the legend...
Yes, I understand that people who object to homosexuality do not wish to view one of the greatest warriors we know as a bisexual.
But please, grow up.
And see this brilliant film!!!
