Audience Reviews for Patton

  • Nov 19, 2014
    George C. Scott stars in the powerful and introspective WWII biopic Patton. Co-written by Francis Ford Coppola, the story follows the exploits of Gen. George S. Patton, from his desert fighting with Rommel in North Africa to his unstoppable march across the European continent with the Third Army. Scott gives a career performance, bringing real depth and complexity to Patton. And, composer Jerry Goldsmith does an extraordinary job at creating an iconic score that embodies the triumph and passion of the warrior spirit. A sweeping historical epic, Patton presents a fascinating look at one of the most accomplished generals in American history.

    The film is mostly remembered for Scott's outstanding performance, and while I understand that, it would be unfair to not recognize the brilliant screenplay and Schaffner's direction as well. The film never looses focus and justifies it's extensive running time by seriously examining Patton's character and his actions during the war.

    George C. Scott is outstanding as Patton. In comparison to the cuddly Eisenhower, Patton was the ruthless driver of his men and was determined to quickly win the war in Europe. The Scott monologue to commence the film is the stuff of legends as is the rest of the performance.

    'Patton' is the successful film that it is because of George C. Scott's amazing performance as the violent and vulnerable general. The action pieces are well done, the script is witty and well paced, and the film is well shot. What makes 'Patton' stand out from other war movies though is Scott's command of both the screen and the role. From first shot to last, 'Patton' is one of the greatest war films you can experience.
