I saw Alexander last night. Many I know, didnt care for it,although for a 3 hour film,I thought it was entertaining. Angelina Jolie as Alexanders
mother, when he was 20 yrs. old in the story,seems a bit unbelievable. In the scene they do together,they seem more like a couple,than mother and son.
Anthony Hopkins is brilliant,as usual and Val Kilmer was noteworthy as Phillip.( I thought he was absolutly brilliant as Jim Morrison in "The
Doors") The battlescenes are well done, but many of Alexanders greatest military achievements are overlooked in favor of character development. With
3 hours to work with, I expected more on this. Oh, and Jared Leto does what Jared Leto does best. Look like Jared Leto. -j; )
