5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting music, 13 Mar. 2005

This review is from: The Alamo [DVD] (DVD)
This version of the 13 day siege of the Alamo in 1836 is more believable with still bigger than life characters. The individuals interacted bettered and you could feel that they were real; the actors did not outshine the characters they portray. The surprise was the superb acting of Billy Bob Thornton as Davy Crockett.
This film shows that there are good sides to people and bad sides to people; even heroes have their problems. It was interesting on how the blacks had to choose sides or the lack of sides. You can see this again in the film dated "Gunga Din" (1939) where Gunga Din (Sam Jaffee), native Indian, had to choose sides in the conflict with the British.
I have been to San Antonio and the film nails the feel of the area. The area has not changed that much.
In the end you feel that everyone gets his/her up-and-comings, yet you want the story to go on.
