Alexander

The movie we want to present today is "Alexander".

Dated 2004 and directed by Oliver Stone, the film is based on the life of Alexander the Great, who lived between 356 BC and 323 BC.
Alexander was King of Macedonia and is known for his conquers, and by the age of thirty he had created one of the biggest empires of the ancient world, from Greece to Egypt and Northwest India.

 

The movie is perfect for the lovers of epic historical movies, it's full of action, epic battles and it shows how life was in ancient Macedonian kingdom.

Shown are the early life of Alexander and his youth, and the difficult relationship with his father. At the age of 20 Alexander becomes king and will start his conquer campaign though the Persian empire, Asia minor, northern Africa and India. Shown are also his relationships with his closest friend Hephaestion and his wife.
Alexander will tragically die only 33, and his name will be legend forever.

Despite of the great cast (Colin Farrel as main actor, Angelina Jolie, Val Kilmer, Jared Leto) the movie was not as successful as expected.
You can watch it and let me know your opinion about it!
