The life, times and world domination of King Alexander (Farrell), who, driven by his pushy mother (Jolie), the legacy of his murdered father (Kilmer) and the glorious myths of his ancestors, conquers half of Asia, unites cultures and gets laid a lot.
Unwieldy and flawed, but Stone remains a tornado in an era of airless formula and - to paraphrase our Ptolemy - its failings are greater than most films' successes.
