  • War History must have Mar 10, 2011
    by Sally M

    A true story but from Hollywood. Portrayal of General Patton's character and leadership. A must see to get a well rounded idea or a WWII theater with Patton

  • Fabulous Movie Jan 6, 2011
    by Bill C.

    This has to be one of the best performances by George C. Scott in his whole professional career. He was very good in portraying General George S. Patton. I would recommend this movie to be in your permanant movie library. I give this movie a 5 star rating without any doubt.

  • Patton DVD Nov 25, 2010
    by Andrew V

    An excellent example of how Hollywood
    deals with bigger than life heros. I'd
    highly recomend this DVD to anyone
    who wants to get a sense of what
    Patton accomplished during WW II.

  • BLOOD AND GUTS Dec 22, 2008
    by BABU

    The wartime career of one of the most controversial American commanders of World War II, Patton (George C.Scott) who forfeited command of the seventh army in Sicily after he had struck a soldier suffering from battle fatigue. Scott created history by being the first actor to refuse his Academy Award, one of seven which the movie won. Scott went on record denouncing the award as a farce and "self-serving meat parade". Needless to say his performance is EXCELLENT. Scott is an actor so totally immersed in his part that he makes you believe he is the man himself. The script was written by none other than Francis Ford Coppola with assistance from Edmund H.North. They won an Academy Award for best story and screenplay. Fred Koenekamp's cinematography is class and gives the film an epic quality, even though it's primarily a character study. Jerry Goldsmith's score is very STIRRING. There are no women in the movie and none are listed in the main credits. As a piece of fil-making it's hard to beat.
