The film was praised for its historical accuracy. Unlike many other films about the Alamo, this film covered both sides. The Alamo and the surrounding city of San Antonio were completely recreated, making this film the largest movie set ever. Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie were once portrayed as ordinary people instead of legendary demigods. In the early 1800s, Texas was still in the hands of the Mexican dictator General Santa Anna. After the Texans captured the city of San Antonio, the general counterattacked in early 1836 to quell resistance for an independent Texas once and for all. A volunteer army of some 200 men takes refuge in The Alamo fortress - an abandoned mission. Among them the famous David Crockett (Billy Bob Thornton), Colonel William Travis and James Bowie. For two weeks, the men defend The Alamo against an odds of 2,000 Mexican soldiers and make history in their struggle for Texas independence.
