Editorial Reviews

HIDALGO: A sandstorm of epic proportions. A swarm of locusts so massive it obliterates the relentless sun. Deadly traps that defy imagination. These are just a few of the astonishing obstacles Frank T. Hopkins, the greatest long-distance racer ever, faces in the rousing action-adventure HIDALGO. Based on a true story and starring Viggo Mortensen (THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy), Hopkins (Mortensen) and his mustang Hidalgo enter the ultimate extreme sport of its time -- the Ocean Of Fire. Underdogs challenging the finest Arabian horses and riders, they must not only survive the grueling race across 3,000 miles of the Arabian Desert's punishing terrain, but they must thwart the evil plots of competitors who vow victory at all costs! A great story of personal triumph, amazing special effects, and memorable characters make HIDALGO one of the most thrilling adventures ever.~~THE ALAMO: From the studio that brought you PEARL HARBOR ... Academy Award(R) winner Billy Bob Thornton (SLING BLADE, Best Adapted Screenplay, 1996; BAD SANTA), Dennis Quaid (THE ROOKIE), and Jason Patric (RUSH) team up for the acclaimed action epic about one of the most important events in American history! It's the heroic tale of the 200 brave men who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom defending a small Texas fort for 13 days against an entire army! Commanded by three men -- Lt. Col. William Travis (Patrick Wilson), James Bowie (Patric), and David Crockett (Thornton) -- their against-all-odds courage at the Alamo would forever live on as a rallying cry for liberty and independence!

Format: DVD
This is a great two-for-one movie pack. It contains HIDALGO and the remake of THE ALAMO.

HIDALGO is the name of a horse, but it really isn't a movie about a horse. Hidalgo is the name of a Mustang stallion owned by Frank T. Hopkins (Viggo Mortensen). Hopkins and Hidalgo have won every North American long distance horse race there is and join up with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show. Hidalgo is promoted as being the best long distance horse in the world. Then an Arab shows up challenging the claim and wanting Hopkins to put Hidalgo to the test by racing him in the Ocean of Fire, a famous long-distance horse race in the deserts of the Middle East. Hopkins agrees and it's off the Middle East. What ensues is a fast-paced adventure filled with sandstorms, desert quick sand, thieves, murderers, a few feisty cats, and an English temptress
.
HIDALGO is a really good action movie. Without any sex (though there are a couple of innuendos), hardly any foul language, and only swashbuckling violence, it's a movie that parents will enjoy bringing their children to see. The film starts off a little slow, but once it picks up there's no turning back. The acting in the film is well done and the stunts are fairly impressive (even more so for the scenes with Mortensen since he did most of his own stunts). There are a few anachronisms (some of the people refer to Iraq, but during the setting of the movie, Iraq wasn't even a country yet). Nevertheless, these things are fairly unnoticeable and take very little away from the film itself. Besides just being a great story, the movie also has a subtle message about not being afraid of who you are.

Overall, HIDALGO is an entertaining film full of excitement. It's a great story and does a good job of balancing the drama with a little comedy.

good and convincing performance of the Bichir brothers, the photography and illumination was very acceptable, the story was slow and boring, I'm not impressed at all,the direction was average I know that the movie was based on a true story but this particular movie was not at my expectations

I have enjoyed both movies, more than once. I had the VHS for years. Just want to keep them close so I can see them when I'm in the mood!

I was really even happier to replace a loaned copy with a two for one. Alamo enjoyed, too. This is a great deal and recommended.

Hidalgo was good, the Alamo was poor quality, John Wayne's Alamo is much better.
