  • Literally THE most acurate battle scene ever done, perfect tempo fact, Alexander over slept the night before and that is why the battle started pass noon with meny macedonians perfectly rested and great contrast their oponents had being in formation for several hours in the hot sun just waiting for them...the balls to pull that tho

  • Archer arrows were not this effective against the pike phalanx. This is why the phalanx was so effective against Persian battle tactics, particularly their cavalry archers. The arrows would largely be deflected by the ranks of pikes that were held at varying angles over their heads. Only if they were shot at it from the flanks or from behind were they vulnerable.

  • when alexander the great was a king of Bulgarians lands from tribe Dulo, country with the name Macedonia not exist yet.False history.He never not have the title Macedonian. Always was with the title the Great! You can see the hats of a warriors are of Dacians on the movie .they are is called romania.The war with Persia was with my people bulgarians on the Bulgarians lands.Plutarch write about this and many documents proves this what i speak. Greeks never have a war with Persians. They stole the Bulgarian history from us and they burned all Bulgarians books in Alexandria. I am historian and you cant lie me with this false Holywood movie. Everyboby knows that Bulgaria is the most old country on the world. Bulgarians are the Great Nation blessed from God the Creator! Nobody cant change this.

  • 🐐🐏🦅 Hello Alexander is Albanian and the name is the same as him (Skenderbeu) is Albania, Dardania illyria is all Albania hears the soldiers speak Albanian - ECIM PARA ECIM PARA - because the truth will come out very soon and that Macedonia belongs to the Albanians and they are free tribes - these fictional films come, come, watch well where Illyria and Macedonia go. shie the Hunza tribe is exactly the same as the Albanian people are those Hunza tribes left in the wars of Alexander the Great Leka the Great. but do not invent the story but the facts that come out of the ground are showing otherwise illyria 🇦🇱

  • The thing I liked about this sequence was I could never quite grasp from the old maps/diagrams of the battle what it was that Alexander was doing. But seeing it on screen, and the dust being kicked up by the Macedonian Horse, which in turn hid the presence of the light infantry, that is a seriously boss move by Alexander.

  • I think this is one of the best battle scenes in movie and television history. It shows tactics, accurate equipment, formations clashing against each other. Hell, the protagonist is wearing a helmet. Quite different from the other movies where the named characters all fight with heads exposed just to show their faces to the camera, the armies just bash one another without thought, the battle line turns into a giant line of duels. You can see light infantry pestering the enemy, heavy infantry pinning them in place, cavalry maneuvering and concealing movement of troops, you can see officers trying to maintain cohesion... hell, it's brilliant.

    • Perhaps you Albanians need acoustic treatment. They either shout "Νικηφόρος" (nikiforos in English) which means "victorious" in ancient and modern Greek, or ΕΝΥΑΛΙΟΣ (enyalios/enialos in English) which is the son of Ares, the God of War.

    • @kLuSe. The Persians weren't even attacking Greece during Alexanders lifetime as far as I know. The famous Greco Persian wars were long before Alexander was born. It would be like Me attacking Britain or Germany because they had been historical enemies, but times change. Alexander was all in it for the glory and power. Of course conquering Egypt, Syria, Bactria, various other middle eastern kingdoms, all the way to India, had nothing to do with defense or even Persia for that matter. Allot of people died for his hunger for power. I think it's good however we are having this new debate about Alexander, not long ago Western Education just portrayed him as some conquering hero, but having a modern world perspective it's not hard to see how many many other non Greek non European people saw him as a foreign tyrant warlord.
