One of the most iconic personalities in history, Alexander the Great was also one of its greatest commanders, who expanded his father's realm from Macedonia to Egypt and India. This miniseries explores the legacy of Alexander the Great.
The year is 330 BC and Alexander the Great, King of Macedonia and one of the greatest military minds of all time, begins his march through Persia. Soon he will battle the Persian army in his first direct engagement with King Darius III, a pivotal event in his journey to conquering much of the known world. However, before facing his great rival Alexander must first face down his own war weary army and dissent from his internal rivals.
Batman + Captain Kirk fight Persians... Nuff said.
A story about great men that would come to redefine our civilisation.
An event whose impact would reach the "ends of the world and the great outer sea".
A cultural revolution had started that would mark the beginning of an epoch.
None of these statements describes this made for TV pilot movie, which is a rather turgid retelling of the Battle of Issus with William Shatner in the title role and Adam West playing Robin to his Alexander. The script is horrible, the acting is wooden and thank god this pilot was never picked up.
Three years later Shatner and West were free to be cast in their iconic roles and history was made.
