    I just wasted 2.5 hours of my life. This movie sucked bad. Colin Farrel as Alexander? Do not rent this movie!

    Downloading from the internet is wrong. You are taking food from the mouths of poor actors like Colin Farell.

    Geez that movie sucked!!!! After the first 10 minutes I wanted to take out my eyes with spoons! There wasn't even any decent shamelessly gratuitous sex/nudity to make up for the lack of quality acting, dialogue, continuity, scenery (etc. take your pick). The person that rented this caca and made me sit through it should be flogged. Angelina Jolie is hot though. :wink:

    I heard Alexander's wife in the movie was rather sharp.

    From what I understand, it took about 10 years or so for Stone to research, write and then make this movie. Perhaps the movie will do better in Europe like Troy did.

    Yah, I agree. Alexander's wife (played by Rosario Dawson I think) was sharp as in good-looking AND she turned in one of the two credible performances in the movie (the other belonging to Jared Leto - I don't like him but he did a good job). Man, if Oliver Stone spent 10 years researching and making that train wreck, well, I feel sorry for him. It might do better in Europe because they'll actually be laughing at it harder than we did here and who wouldn't pay for a good laugh?

    Wink
