Critic Reviews of "The Alamo"Village VoiceApril 13, 2004
It's dull, talky, and sometimes maudlin.Ebert & RoeperApril 12, 2004
Thanks to the skills of director and co-screenwriter John Lee Hancock and a deep cast of reliable veterans, this is an authentic and rousing version of the most famous battle in Texas history.Washington PostApril 09, 2004
Absorbing yet ever-so-slightly jaundiced retelling.Washington PostApril 09, 2004
With the notable exception of Thornton's Crockett, none of these characters engages you.Toronto StarApril 09, 2004
Although handsomely mounted, and boasting some historically immaculate dressing and impressive battle sequences, it's a movie that ultimately can't convincingly get behind the idea of sacrifice.Seattle TimesApril 09, 2004
It may be history, but it's too meticulous to be believable.Fat Guys at the MoviesFebruary 04, 2015
Something was missing from the film. It lacked punch.Common Sense MediaSeptember 09, 2010
Doesn't work despite Thornton's top performance.ColeSmithey.comMay 05, 2009
This dog of a movie confirms that in 1836 Texas was stolen from Mexico by a bunch of opportunistic bastards whose descendants went on to use similarly underhanded methods to steal the office of the White House in 2000.Christianity TodaySeptember 01, 2006
There are great moments, though it's ultimately a lightweight film and certainly not an Oscar contender.Hollywood.comAugust 31, 2006
Not even good sets, plenty of historical detail, and Billy Bob Thornton can put life into director John Lee Hancock's slow-moving, poorly acted Texan saga.Cinema em CenaJuly 07, 2006
Com exceção das performances de Thornton e Quaid, o filme traz caracterizações estereotipadas e freqüentemente se entrega ao sentimentalismo barato.
