Troy wasn't great but Alexander was a freakin disaster.
Man, 2004 was not a good year to have a Classics degree. These two historically/literarily inaccurate movies were a chore to sit through. I mean, if you're going to disregard the source material this badly, at least do it like Gladiator or 300: ENTERTAININGLY.
I agree with jetsilverravenger, Alexander was a freaking disaster. I can at least watch Troy again without cringing, and as long as I don't turn my brain on, it's not that bad. Sadly, I keep wishing I could forget Alexander, but then I realise that if I'd never seen it, then I might think it could be interesting and I'd go and watch it, and I don't want to subject myself to that again. Ever.
I agree with jetsilveravenger and vincemale. Troy wasn't great, but it is watchable if you feel like some brainless swords & sandals nonsense. But Alexander was a freaking disaster; a boring, overblown toilet bowl splatter. Terrible editing, a directionless script, a mismatched score, unlikable characters with terrible dialogue, and a waste of time and money. And Colin Farrell is worst of all, as the sobbing, bellowing, trembling, mincing little would-be Emperor. I did not know what to expect of his Alexander, but manic-depressive lunatic with mommy-issues was not it.
