Waging war with his best friend, fellow warrior--and lover--Hephaestion, by his side, Alexander The Great unified nations by the blood of his sword--preparing the way for the spread of Greek culture, the Roman Empire and Christianity as his enduring legacy.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Even at nearly three hours long, this ponderous, talky, and emotionally distant biopic fails to illuminate Alexander's life.

Common Sense Says
Alexander the person was great. This movie isn't.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has extreme and explicit battle violence with many impalings and other graphic injuries. Alexander is portrayed as bi-sexual. There are very explicit heterosexual sexual situations and references and male and female nudity, plus references and implications of gay sex and some same-sex kissing and a mother-son kiss on the mouth and an attempted rape. Some exotic dancers perform in skimpy attire. Characters drink, sometimes to excess.
