I didn't like Alexander at all. It's an overlong bore with over-the-top acting, an out-of-focus script with ludicrous, pretentious dialogue, and a director who didn't know what to make of his subject. However, for me, the one part of the movie that worked was the Young Alexander section. I thought Connor Paolo was terrific in the scene where his character tames Bucephalus (he spent two months learning to ride bareback). Apparently, a lot of critics felt the same way. Below is a link to a page containing selections from reviews (generally unfavorable for the film) from around the country where Connor is praised, and one where he's not!
