However, I agree with the critics. This movie was terrible. The action scenes were poorly done and minimized to a large extent. It hard to tell which was worse, the acting or the horrible dialog. Oliver Stone seemed to want to make a bad soap opera instead of a decent movie.
I commonly include this movie in my list when asked about what I think are the worse movies of all time.
He made one of the greatest conquerors in history...boring.
1. Combat scenes were fine but short. Um...if you're going to make a movie about a conqueror who spent most of his life killing people and is the thing he is known for, you might show a little bit of it.
2. As above Stone tried to turn it into a Soap Opera. Sorry but that doesn't make the movie interesting.
