Watch Viva Max!
- 1 hr 33 min
The basic idea of the movie, Viva Max, is about a loner Mexican general who would like to retake the Alamo in 1969. Max's decision to get involved in the situation comes from the fact that his girlfriend decides not to follow him to the house of poor repute. This is when Max decides to perform an act of heroism by leading his men on a white horse. Max takes his men to the border of Texas, to recapture Alamo. Many people in Texas are offended that Max wants to retake Alamo; however, the Texas National Guard is sent to retake the mission. The men think that are going to be in a parade for Washington's birthday. The general doesn't want his men to argue with him, so he tells them a lie to get them to borders of Alamo. The mission should be easy because Max's troops didn't bring their ammunition from Mexico because the State department doesn't want anyone to die by bullet. Max's decision forces the National Guard to go into the situation with unloaded weapons, so no one will get hurt. He is eventually successful with his scheme, and this gets the attention of National Guard and the police. The flag of Mexico has been returned to the Alamo fort. The law enforcement agencies' leadership has been questioned. It takes the authorities awhile to figure out the fort is back under Mexican control. Max lets the pentagon know that he has claimed Alamo for Mexico. The novel writer is Jim Lehrer, and the screenplay writer is Elliott Baker.
