Thornton's performance is lost in a film that is more of a schematic success than a dramatic one. Full Review
Carla Meyer
San Francisco Chronicle
The brave men who fought and perished at the Alamo believed fervently in their cause. For The Alamo to work, the audience must believe as well. That never really happens. Full Review
David Edelstein
Thanks to Hancock's evasive storytelling, it's never clear why Houston moved so slowly or why so few Texians came to the Alamo's aid. The middle of the movie is pokey and unfocused--and, given the circumstances, bizarrely lacking in urgency. Full Review

Washington Post
These storied 13 days feel like the Hundred Years War. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The good news first: The Alamo is probably the most historically accurate depiction yet to reach the screen of the famous siege. The bad news is that "historically accurate" does not necessarily translate into "dramatically successful." Full Review
