All the pontificating about the joys of freedom becomes irritating, but James Edward Grant's dialogue occasionally crackles with enough humorous wit to hold an audience untill the gripping finale.

Despite a banal and preachy script, full of speeches about religion and patriotism,the film has some good action sequences; overall, it's not worse than the 2004 remake starring Billy Bob Thornton.

Patriotic but inaccurate epic Western.

Duke does Alamo redux. Heroic, overblown, speechy.

There's a lot of talky drama and it takes more than two hours before you get to the fighting, but it remains an American epic.

The Alamo is an engaging and spectacular tribute to the power of filmmaking - both as socio-historic document and as a flashlight into the hearts of its participants.
