The film focuses on what it considers key events in the time of Alexander, but also contributes many 20th and 21st centuries themes of individual freedom in depicting Alexander's ventures into Asia. Although to historians the film has a lot of key inaccuracies, the film does inform as well as entertain
and many key events , such as Alexander's attempt unify the Greek and Persian worlds, did happen. This was borne by the wives he marries as well his actions.
