I fear this movie is going to be another denial of Macedonian history and how Philip and Alexander and the Macedonians shaped Greece and the world to come. Macedonians were always considered foreign to Greeks and it is well documented by contemporaries and historians. Greece was always within the Macedonian circle and it detested being so. Greece never enveloped it, that is until modern times.......I will not go here on this forum.

I'll wait and see the reviews, however if I am any judge of what gets bums on seats, I'd say CONTROVERSIAL TRUTH would have been the way to go.

Greek history was great AND so was Macedonian history, but please don't mistake Macedonian for Greek just because the Greeks could write first.

I do not think it will be another denial of Macedonian history. The Macedonians were considered half barbarious because they had a diffirent rulership. other than that they were still greeks and spoke a dialect of greek.
