In Stone's final cut, epic battles remain chaotic (although Alexander's strategy is somewhat easier to follow, with on-screen titles indicating left, right, and center during his army's greatest maneuvers) and the ultra-violent battles are more graphically gory than ever (hence their "unrated" status). The animalistic lovemaking of Alexander and his barbarian bride Roxana (Rosario Dawson) is slightly extended (with Dawson as ravishing as ever), and Stone's additional footage also improves the overall arc of Alexander's relationship with his closest generals and male companions, although his most intimate homosexual encounters remain mostly discreet. As Alexander Revisited makes clear, the film's weaknesses remain unavoidable, but Stone deserves credit for recognizing how a longer running time, and more disciplined narrative structure, would bring Alexander closer to the respect it never earned from critics and filmgoers alike. This is unquestionably a better film than it used to be, leaving us to wonder why it took three separate efforts to shape Alexander into its best possible presentation. --Jeff Shannon

|Why do people hate this movie so much?||
Read "Persian Boy" book, and this movie will be so much more interesting. I saw it. Yeah, it is kinda long, and gets people tired. If you please, one should watch it in two seatings, but the scenery and the way plot flows is grand. I love it!

|Question about this version.||
the version you saw in theater WAS the original DVD release.
The other version initially released on DVD under the name "director's cut" was indeed shorter than the theatrical version, but Oliver Stone wanted to make the pace tighter and more consistent.

Some people like the film. Yes, people who are not idiots like the film. It's possible for slow moving movies, flawed movies and misunderstood movies to actually be good. Alexander is one example. It's wasn't the homophobia of America that made this film flop as much as the cynical a.d.d. riddled... Read More
