Remember the Alamo!!,
This review is from: Alamo [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
In the short week it was shown in cinemas on 3rd September, my Dad and myself managed to see twice, and we both found it amazing!!
The story is well told, learning about each of the characters right up the final battle. The action never stops from the beginning.
About 5% of the film is made with computers, the rest is shot with breath taking camera shots from 100ft poles and 40mph camera movments. The set it was built on is the largest film set in history at over 50 achres, with full size 1836 San Antonio and Alamo complex
My dad has been a fan of the Alamo from seeing John Wayne's Alamo movie in 1960.
I bought the R1 DVD as soon as it came out in the states, and found it educational and enjoyable, with over an hours worth of special features. The film should win the cinematography award at next year's Oscars!
