The Alamo

Excellent movie, although it seemed to drag in a few places. The content is somewhat controversial, with many critics accusing Disney of rewriting history. In particular, the capture and execution of Davy Crockett is somewhat dubious, being based on alleged eye-witness accounts that were subsequently proven to be forgeries. The story is compelling, but its pace does not fit the typical Hollywood formula, and the audience is left feeling somewhat dissatisfied by Houston’s victory over Santa Anna, after witnessing the brutal defeat at the Alamo. It is a well-made movie and well-acted, if somewhat historically inaccurate.
