Cheap and boring - The Alamo Documentary review by PB

Spoiler Alert
18/01/2018

What a dull documentary. Very little information about the reason for the battle and references to how movies re-enactments the story. Interspersed with people dressing up as the original battle, just like those dreadful American museums that should be avoided. Cheap and rubbish.
