History in a short one hour movie that for most people is educatioal. We enjoyed the person playing the Mexican leader and Davey Crockett the most.

We saw the IMAX film The Alamo after having visited the Alamo, and we would recommend doing it in reverse. See this film first - it will help make the visit to the actual site much more meaningful. The film is extremely well done -...More

The film is informative. Definitely go before visiting the Alamo. It will make your visit better knowing some background.

Watched price of freedom, not a big budget production but a good way for two elementary school boys to get more perspective. Not a bad price, close to Alamo. Parking can be validated. Just 45 minutes length. Movie not overly violent.

This movie was just "so-so" definitely not worth the money we paid. I thought the video we watched at the Alamo sight for free was just as good if not better!

While we were at the Alamo we dicided on our last day to go check out the short film. It was pretty well made and had some decent acting for a documentary. I would recommend it if you aren't familiar with the history .
