Abysmal!
30 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a geographic crime! John Ford is nice to copy, but crap, this takes place in a coastal plain. 80% of the "action" is unknown characters popping off cornpon phrases like "madder than a wet hen". Little action. I love Bill Paxton, but his portrayal of Houston, knowing how frustrated the general was, comes off as having the worst case of hemorrhoids since Napoleon. Casting is fine, but overall it is very disappointing. I can only assume Bill Brands did his interviews before he saw this incredible mess. Please leave Texas alone and stick to ballheaded pawn brokers and inbred swamp people, we have enough misery due to the flooding. Of course, that could not have happened in your mountainous dusty Texas....
