One thing i must admit she certainly had that 'look' present and suspicious type of thing going on. Other than that her attempt to play Olympias could have been far better.

Greetings people!

I must admit I tend to agree with Philalexandros . Angelina a real beauty and did an excellent rendering of a strange, eccentric fanatical mother but something about the accent and her overwhelming beauty made her a little unconvincing for me, I think the use of irish or celtic accents was an excellent way of forming a parallel to what I believe the difference may have sounded like in the many ancient Greek dialects of the time ,but hers which I think was supposed to be from ipeirus seemed out of key totally. if I could find two people who I think were not perfectly cast were Olympia and also Roxanne with her boob job . Sorry guys I love this film too and own the dvd and have already watched it at least four times ......guess we are a sad lot to others!

no offence intended to the two beauties but I understand there are certain pressures on dierctors and producers etc.......apart from these two observations I could not fault the rest of the casting .

Yeah, I have doubts about Roxanne. But Angelina was the right choice to play the role of Olympias. She was just.....perfect for me.

I couldn't imagine anyone more perfect to portray Olympias.

I don't think angelina is deserve for act as Olympia. cause angelina do not look like greek women, ( she is too big for being woman in 2000 years ago) the portray of goddess greek or roman sculpture is the good fact for how women in that time look like. about her acting is okay but too much stress like boardway theater. I think she must be more natural
