What this historical dramatization of the Texas Revolution could have been—and what it was.
“Texas Rising” might even be good.
If the death of a horse is the most touching scene in this production, what does that say about it?
Usually the devil is in the details, but with “Texas Rising,” the broad brush strokes are more troubling.
If you don’t think about it too hard, Texas Rising is pretty enjoyable to watch.

A slouchy story. No narrative drive. Questionable history. But, sure, I’ll keep watching Texas Rising.
Don’t invite a history buff to your "Texas Rising" viewing party.
