“Like its title character, this reinvention by Oliver Stone of his epic story is bold and unprecedented, now recalling in its sweep such movie greats as Lawrence of Arabia and Patton. The filmmaker of JFK and World Trade Center incorporates over 30 minutes never shown anywhere and reshapes his saga of the world’s greatest warrior into a richer, more satisfying audacious portrait from curious boyhood to mature conqueror. Added scenes of thunderous action and evocative sexuality enrich the performance of its stellar cast. Discover more secrets of a historic legend – and more greatness from one of cinema’s bravest directors.”
Quote from DVD’s cover
I was very impressed. I didn’t like Val in this movie, but I like him as an actor – my favorite movie with him “Doors” about Jim Morrison. He was great in it. Colin Farrell, Jared Leto and Angelina Jolie also incredible! Such great job!
