Audio Commentary:Oliver Stone and historian Robin Lane Fox.
Documentaries:Resurrecting Alexander, explores the filming of Alexander. Perfect is the Enemy of God, provides an in depth look at the details that go into the filming of an epic.
Featurette:Soundtrack featurette: Vangelis Scores Alexander .
Other extra features are the same as on the director's cut. Three documentaries (80 minutes total) collect behind-the-scenes footage, interviews (mostly with the crew), and some effects notes. They're rather indistinguishable from each other and might have been edited into a shorter, tighter single unit. There's also a four-minute featurette of composer Vangelis at his keyboard discussing his craft. --David Horiuchi

The action starts almost immediately with a longer, more graphic version of the Battle of Gaugemela (Wonderfully undertaken, Stone paying homage to the great Sergei Bondarchuk with those terrific panning shots) and then works backwards through Alexanders youth. The film moves forward and backwards from there yet the new subtitles give you the year and how long, before or after, from the previous scene. It is quite instructive to anyone the slighest bit confused and is a superb history lesson. Also good are longer dancing scenes with Roxanna's troupe and Bogoas' troupe...both superb, filmic scenes...beautifully done. The Bogoas character (Francisco Bosch) is also expanded and made far more sympathetic.

This is not 2007, it's 330BC and mores and the concept of battle, honor, fidelity etc were different for those times. I for one, praise Mr. Stone for a very accurate feel and presence...and even minor characters are explained in far greater detail...such as the young Guardsman who killed Philip (Kilmer)...in a flashback we see his motives. It is now far more beautifully edited...Read more ›

If I had not read so much about Alexander already, I might have gotten confused. Sometimes the script writers are writing speeches instead of following Alexander's life. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Penina Spinka
Such a disappointing movie! I ended up taking two breaks to finish this and even fast forwarded toward the end. Way too much sniveling by Colin Ferrell, it really got on my nerves. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Rhett & Leo Mom
It's a protracted mess. Every character has a different foreign accent. Motivations aren't elucidated, relationships are muddled. Poor Colin Farrell. Read morePublished 12 days ago by D. Douglas
