The Alamo (1960, John Wayne) **½

Wayne's solo directorial debut. Too much time spent with exposition of famous characters (Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie), and as a result the first half of the film really crawls. Melodramatic subplot details Crockett's developing relationship with a Mexican woman, only to have him send her away when the action gets too rough. Highlight of the film is the final siege, particularly the cannon exchanges. After two hours into the film and no blood (despite numerous shootings and stabbings), I was afraid this was going to turn into a Disney-fied affair. No fear! The blood starts showing by the end.

The DVD makes it apparent why the film won an Oscar for Sound. The 5.1 mix makes active use of the rear soundstage.

(JOHN WAYNE, 1960)
Comments pending.
John Wayne did outstanding job on this film. Itwas overlooked at the Academy Awards and unjustifiably so. It was beautiful, costumes were outstanding and true to type. Actors were wonderful and I believe it should've been more acknowledged for great job they did in portraying those truly brave men at the Alamo! THe music is an experience, beautiful and haunting. The horses and scenery were beautiful. Everything was just amazing.

The Alamo (1960)

Despite a vast amount of historical inaccuracies this was a pretty fun movie. It's not an amazing movie but it's fun to watch. The action and battle sequences had to have been top notch for 1960.
a great movie a must have. buy it
:fresh: Although The Alamo is far from being a perfect film, it is still good because this movie was made with passion and was a hard work that John Wayne directed, produced and acted with the biggest care he could. Richard Widmark as Jim Bowie was perfect, R.I.P., master actor. The battle scenes are incredible, the society of the age are portrayed very accurately, the problem here is that Wayne abused, there are a lot of minutes that could have been edited and make this picture a little more agile. The music was fine but sometimes it had nothing to do with the situation that was happening at the moment.
** (out of four)

The Duke put is heart and soul into directing his overly patriotic flag-waving epic about those who defended the small mission, known as the Alamo.

I like John Wayne and respect many of his films, but he pushes the sentiment too far in this long and dull film that is more concerned with overly emotional speaches and uninspired dialogue.
Great movie that's fairly accurate (unlike these days). Full of suspense but drags on for a long time. John Wayne could have done better.
