    Alexander the Great


    Compared to other period epics from the Hollywood golden era, this is incredibly weak. Battle scenes have the intensity of a junior high stage play, there's no visual bravado to any of the shots, and at times it felt like it had the credibility of the Italian Steve Reeves Hercules movies that were meant to be pale imitations of these grand productions.
