Oliver Stone tackles the epic story of world-conquering strategist Alexander the Great. Colin Farrell stars as the vaguely Irish Macedonian. Val Kilmer, Angelina Jolie and Anthony Hopkins are all along for the long ride. The battles are big and bloody, but the story is convoluted and (at a battle-weary 173 minutes) still can't match its grand subject matter. Disappointing.173 minutes PG-13.
