| Boring Soap-Opera with an Awful Screenplay
Having names such Oliver Stone, Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Val Kilmer, Angelina Jolie, Christopher Plummer and Rosario Dawson in the cast; a great theme; and a huge budget, I could never expect that "Alexander" could be a boring movie. However, the screenplay is simply awful, showing a long and very confused story that looks like a soap-opera, with many stupid lines. The characters and situations are not well developed, and the viewer is frequently surprised with actions or reactions without any previous explanations. The fight scenes are ridiculously choreographed, being a bloody and messy collection of blurred short images. The camera uses close-up most of the times and countless number of cuts. Angelina Jolie speaks with a ridiculous accent and I do not know what the intention of such behavior is. The free exploitation of gays and homosexual situations shows clearly the intention of raising a polemic theme to get the spots of the media and call the attention of the public in general. The extended running time bothered my family and I, and we were anxiously waiting for the end of this crap. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Alexandre"
