Rousing tale of the conquest of California.
23 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Rousing, action packed tale of the taking of California from the Mexican Government. While historically inaccurate, the cast and direction move things along in a pleasant manner, with lotsa Indians and gunfire. It's a good thing that Andrews wears a moustache since he and Hall are almost twins.
