Goofs

When Santa Anna's troops lower the flag over the Alamo, it is a United States Flag. The Texans fought for the independence of Texas not for the USA. The only flag known to fly over the Alamo during the siege was of the New Orleans Greys. Possibly also a Mexican Tricolor with two gold stars in the center field representing Coahuila (a Mexican State) and Texas. See more »

Ok Telemovie
4 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is very cheezy. The acting isn't perfect, but it is (sort of) accurate. I especially liked the way they portrayed the Cherokee and the Osage. It shows a little research on the producer's part, but they didn't really portray Sam Houston's life so accurately. A lot of his life was over dramatized, but I can look over that.

If you look at the movie in a whole view, it is ok... for TV. Recommended for viewing if you are bored and have an hour and a half to spare.

6/10
