Audience Reviews for The Lost Patrol

  • Mar 02, 2008
    "the lost patrol" is one of the classic war flick on the theme of agoraphobia and survivalist trauma, directed by classic john ford who also takes the directional wheel of "the wrath of grapes" as well as a bunch of john wayne classics. "the lost patrol" is about the wwi army lurks over the mesopotomian desert for temporal ease of oasis then besieged by the clandestine aribian assassinators, then gradually soldiers die one by one that corners and alienates its remained survivors until merely the sergent himself is kept alive to defeat the arabian crooks. in a nutshell, "the lost patrol" is a dirge upon the trainsient lives of war soldiers as well as their reluctant solace and unbearable sorrows, an anti-war nihilism on the futility of war or the glorification on the solemn sacrifice of millions of soldiers?? it might appear dry to some since it's mainly about dialogues of the characters' psychological interactions which delineates their mental states and also some primitive action scenes within the sequence of guerillas. two engrossing characters would be boris karloff's religious frantic who holds a giant cross of woodsticks to march torward the battlefield to make himself a myrtyr and victor mclaglen's sergeant who is a shattered widower living on the spared gleam of hopes for his son. the untimely rescue eventually feels like a preposterous mirage to deepen the sergeant's despair on the loss of numerous lives that contrarily thickens the simmering irony of war's fickleness. "the lost patrol" is a humanistic depiction upon the cruelty of war and its costy price on human blood.
