* ValuesDissonance: Up the wazoo
** For purely practical reasons (lack of any treatment) badly wounded soldiers are euthanasied without anyone blinking an eye on that, considering it mercy instead.
** Greek extremely sexist views, especially when combined with homosexual subtexts ''and'' text. It has more than few subplots, making it all that more prominent.
** Aristotle's CulturalPosturing, which is very much TruthInTelevision picked from his works.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The story of Alexander the Great is one of most incredible in human history. Somehow they managed to take this and turn it into a badly cast narmfest that turned audiences off in droves.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: A large amount of people remember the film for that one scene Creator/RosarioDawson spends in [[FullFrontalAssault full frontal nudity]].



* JustHereForGodzilla: A large amount of people watched the film for [[FullFrontalAssault that one scene]] with Creator/RosarioDawson.
* MisBlamed: Oliver Stone and some others blamed Americans and their rampant homophobia when there were some complaints about a bisexual Alexander the Great. They more or less explained that all or most Americans were homophobic and completely ignorant of history. The only problem: there weren't really any complaints on the American side concerning Alexander's sexuality. The complaints were coming from conservative Greeks. No one called them out on it.

*** Queen Olympias was from Epirus (modern Albania) which is why hers is different. And the late Achaemenid Empire (Persia) claimed 50 million subjects spread over 8 million square kilmoeters. It's understandable that their accents would not be consistent amongst all Persians.
