Years Of Enjoyment,
This review is from: The Alamo [DVD]  (DVD)
Any movie that can still entertain me after all these years has to be worth five stars. I know it isn't a "Great" movie in the strict sense of the term, but it is action-packed, and boasts a stellar cast that includes John Wayne, Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey, and Richard Boone. It used to thrill me as a kid, and even now I consider it to contain action sequences that are as good as any in any other Western made before or since.
My only criticism is that this dvd features the standard version of the film that runs for a mere 154 minutes. If you are a purist, then try to get hold of the restored VHS "Director's Cut" that includes over half-an-hour of footage that hasn't been seen since 1960.
