29 February 2000 | helpless_dancer
| Gang of malcontents plot the overthrow of a nation
A small group of men plan a coup on the government of Mexico and spoil for a good fight. They enlist a former politico as their unwilling leader and he proves to be a fine commander. The renegades suffer several setbacks before finally meeting the enemy at the crucial engagement of the insurrection. A too slow, unrealistic look at Texas independence.
