==Summary==
In 1836 Gen. Sam Houston ([[Dennis Quaid]]) organizes a rebel army to liberate Texas from the brutal rule of Mexican dictator General Santa Anna ([[Emilio Echevarría]]). Though vastly outnumbered, Gen. Houston's volunteer army includes such folkloric figures as Jim Bowie ([[Jason Patric]]) and Davy Crockett ([[Billy Bob Thornton]]). As Santa Anna's forces advance on San Antonio, the legendary general and his men prepare for a final heroic standoff at a battle-worn mission called the Alamo.
