Legendary war stories, like the battle of the Alamo, have a certain attraction. “The Alamo” paints a picture of men united by high ideals; and though they know that the odds are against them, they are willing to lay down their lives for the sake of the common cause of liberty. The viewer should remember that wars were rarely as glorious as they are portrayed. Moreover, due to some objectionable language and extended battle scenes, Dove cautions those who would view “The Alamo.” Dove recommends this film at a 12+ age level and strongly cautions parents about the violent battle scenes.
One reader of our reviews wrote us with the following message that folks may wish to consider as they view this film:
“One caution you missed in your review of The Alamo were the historical inaccuracies portrayed. Creative license also has a responsibility. The events in this movie were portrayed as ‘truth’ with no disclaimer.”
