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

Very moving film that helps put the Alamo in perspective. The adults and kids, ages 6-8, in our party loved it. It makes history come to life and really helps kids and adults understand the importance of an Alamo trip. I have done this before...More

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!
