This is a review of Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut, the only one of the
three four versions of this film that I’ve seen.
I wasn’t really a fan of the way the story jumped around in time so much, but it never really got confusing.
Other than that, I’m sure there was plenty that could have been left out…and most surely was in the other versions.
Colin Ferrell is not a good fit for the title character at all, but there are so many other actors who are a good fit in this movie.
Plenty of huge, sweeping landscape shots, and battle scenes without the added nuisance of shaky cam.
Obviously none of this going on here.
At 3.5 hours, this is, by far, the longest movie I’ve ever seen. I mentioned above that there were parts that didn’t really need to be there, but it somehow never really felt like it was too long.
I’d sit through it again.
