History in a short one hour movie that for most people is educatioal. We enjoyed the person playing the Mexican leader and Davey Crockett the most.

Watched price of freedom, not a big budget production but a good way for two elementary school boys to get more perspective. Not a bad price, close to Alamo. Parking can be validated. Just 45 minutes length. Movie not overly violent.
