Reviews for The Alamo

Review - Alamo, The

Long. There were several scenes between Crockett and a Mexican woman at the beginning that took up a lot of time and had nothing to do with the battle. There were also a lot of political speeches—of the sort Americans used to make before the country went stupid—but they also took up a lot of time. Still, it was visually impressive, with thousands of extras and sweeping views (and no CGI or greenscreen shots).
