Nearly 3 hours long and not a dull moment in the movie. George C. Scott totally disappears into the role of General Patton. It's a very unapologetic movie based on arguably the most important years of Patton's life during the 2nd World War. We see the tank battles, the victories and setbacks, and more importantly we see the character of Patton. George C. Scott brings his patriotism, lunacy, and questionable behavior right to center stage for our viewing pleasure.
Spotless performance, George C. Scott. Spotless!
What a movie, few movies have the ability to catch every movment.
One of the greatest performances.
