As an Alamo buff I have seen most of the features of the famous battle, and the men who fought there. This documentary took a fascinating slice of our history and squeezed the life out of it. The production values were very low: camera work, lighting (if you're only shooting heads, try to make them look good) and the editing seemed completely unmotivated. The little "bonus" scene of the museum artifacts was very badly done, like someone had a timer and had to leave. I found myself watching, transfixed, as each repetitive sound bite, delivered without benefit of supporting footage or some interesting inter-cuts, droned on. The section of previous features was the best part, using at least footage from the past, though the insights weren't too insightful.Thinking I had found someone's high school project, I looked up the producer and see she has quite a few credits. Well, she phoned this one in.
