Lavish remake of the 1960 John Wayne epic. The film retells the remarkable events of the 1835-36 Texan War of Independence, in particular the historic siege of the Alamo - a crumbling abandoned Franciscan mission near San Antonio where a rag-tag band of some 200 soldiers and volunteers, led by Colonel William Travis (Patrick Wilson) and including Davey Crockett (Billy Bob Thornton) and Jim Bowie (Jason Patric), joined together in a courageous pact: they would stand firm against the Mexican army of more than 2,000, under the personal command of dictator General Santa Anna (Emilio Echevarria), and willingly give their lives for freedom. The film also chronicles the Battle of San Jacinto in which the Texan army, led by General Sam Houston (Dennis Quaid), took on and defeated Santa Anna's army, finally winning freedom and independence for Texas.
