Historical epic presents a dramatized account of the life and times of Alexander the Great.

Part of a number of "swords-and-sandals" epics from acclaimed directors dotting the Hollywood landscape in the 2000s, Alexander presents viewers with a dramatized depiction of the life and storied career of Macedonian monarch and conqueror Alexander the Great.
