Alexander, the army will divide.
各地即将叛乱 没有你的命令 战争将会爆发
Satrapies will revolt. Without your orders, there'll be war.
We beg you. Tell us who.
Our world is gone now.
I'm the last left alive.
Whether that's a blessing or a curse...
...who by Hades would know.
But I've paid my price...
And in broken dreams.
They say we were the greatest fighting force ever known to man.
Greater even than the expedition to Troy.
But how can I say it?
How can I tell you what it is like to be young...
...and to dream big dreams?
To believe when Alexander looked you in the eye, you could do anything.
在他面前 我们就像沐浴在阿波罗的光辉下 变得比我们本身更加优秀
In his presence, by the light of Apollo, we were better than ourselves.
Truly, I've known many great men in my life...
...but only one colossus.
And only now, when old...
...do I understand who this force of nature really was.
Or do I?
Did such a man as Alexander exist? Of course not.
We idolize him, make him better than he was.
Men, all men, reach and fall...
...reach and fall.
在东方 辽阔的波斯帝国统治着 几乎所有的已知世界
In the East, the vast Persian Empire ruled almost all the known world.
In the West, the once great Greek city-states...
底比斯 雅典 斯巴达都丧失了荣耀
...Thebes, Athens, Sparta, had fallen from pride.
For 100 years now, the Persian kings had bribed the Greeks...
...with their gold to fight as mercenaries.
It was Philip, the one-eyed, who changed all this...
...uniting tribes of illiterate sheepherders from the high and lowlands.
With his blood and guts, he built a professional army...
...that brought the devious Greeks to their knees.
He then turned his eye on Persia...
...where it was said the Great King Darius himself...
...on his throne in Babylon, feared Philip.
Philip was murdered...
...much to Persia's delight and perhaps sponsored by their gold.
And Alexander, at 20 became the new ruler of Macedonia.
Announcing revenge for the death of Philip...
...Alexander liberated all of the cities of western Asia...
...south to Egypt...
...where he was declared Pharaoh of Egypt...
...and worshipped as a god.
And finally, he provoked the rise to battle...
长驱直入 一直攻到 波斯帝国的中心地带巴比伦附近
...in the heart of the Persian Empire, near Babylon.
It was mad.
Forty thousand of us against hundreds of thousands...
... of barbarian races unknown to us...
... gathered under Darius himself.
East and west had now come together...
... to decide the fate of the known world.
It was the day Alexander had waited for all his life.
Son of a god.
It was a myth, of course.
At least it started as a myth.
I was there.
In the crack of the Persian line, we'll go for the head.
The gods have brought him to us at last.
If I die, it's one Macedonian.
But the Persians, they cannot move without Darius' command.
这里 就在这里 我们可以切断波斯军队的咽喉
Here. Right here, we cut the throat of the Persian army.
This is madness. You'll never get within 100 paces of him.
Have you seen the sheer size of his force?
Not if you hold them on the left, my brave Parmenion...
勇敢的帕曼纽 带着你儿子菲罗塔斯 拖住他一小时
...with your son Philotas for just one, two hours tomorrow.
还有你 从不言败的安提柯斯 你负责中♥央♥方阵
And you, unbreakable Antigonus, the center phalanx.
If you pin them on the walls of your sarissas, here in the center...
...their cavalry will follow me out to the right.
And when bold Cassander breaks, stretching their left...
...a hole will open. Then I and my cavalry-
Our revered Cleitus...
...Ptolemy and Hephaistion.
Will strike through that gap...
...and deal the deathblow to Darius' head.
Since when, by the light of Apollo, has cavalry been used to break an infantry line?
What was it we did to Chaeronea, Parmenion?
Alexander, even with luck, timing, the gods, they're at least five to our one...
...which means in truth we must rout them tomorrow, destroy their army completely.
Or we'll be picked apart by bandit tribes on the long journey home.
You speak of home and retreat...
...but do you understand, Parmenion?
Babylon's my new home.
...if we must fight...
...do so with stealth.
Use your numbers well. We should attack tonight when they least expect us.
我穿过亚洲 不是为了盗取这场胜利 喀山德
I didn't cross Asia to steal this victory, Cassander.
No, you are too honorable for that.
你从小到大 都枕着特洛伊传说睡觉 受其影响太深
No doubt influenced from sleeping with Tales of Troy under your pillow.
But your father was no lover of Homer's.
你看 幼发拉底河以西的广袤土地 和他女儿的婚约
The lands west of the Euphrates, Alexander, the hand of his daughter in marriage.
Since when has a Greek been given such honors?
There are not honors, Parmenion, they're bribes...
...which the Greeks have accepted too long.
Do you forget that the man who murdered my father...
...lies across the valley floor? Come, Alexander...
...we're still not really sure if it was Persian gold behind the assassination.
But that is no matter!
Your father taught you never to surrender your reason to your passion.
Now I urge you...
...with all my experience, regroup.
Fall back to the coast, raise a larger force.
I would, if I were Parmenion.
But I am Alexander.
And no more than Earth has two suns will Asia bear two kings.
These are my terms.
And if Darius isn't a coward who hides behind his men...
...then he'll come to me tomorrow.
And when he bows down to Greece...
...Alexander will be merciful.
By Ares' chains, he has got balls, men.
I mean, give the man his due, Parmenion.
小伙子们 今晚一醉方休 明天我们就要到地府相会了
And, lads, feast tonight, for tomorrow we will dine in Hades.
I've seen one before. It was still alive.
To whom do you pray?
A bad omen.
More so for Darius.
我向来相信 死亡的恐惧 驱迫着所有人 赫菲斯提安
I've come to believe the fear of death drives all men, Hephaistion.
And this we didn't learn as schoolboys.
