What is the movie Patton about?
This critically acclaimed biopic about US General George S. Patton’s role in the events of World War II was directed by Franklin J. Schaffner from a script written by Francis Ford Coppola and Edmund H. North based on a Patton biography written by Ladislas Farago. The movie won seven Academy Awards, including best picture, best director, best actor and best original screenplay. George C. Scott, who famously refused to accept the award due to his dislike for the concept of an acting competition, was particularly praised for his performance as Patton. The film opens with Patton giving an inspired speech in front of a huge American flag, after we are transported to North Africa in 1943, where Patton takes over command of the American II Corps, demoralized after suffering a humiliating loss at the battle of the Kasserine Pass. Patton wins his troops over and quickly turns their fortunes in the Battle of El Guettar. With North Africa held firmly by the Allied troops, Patton becomes involved in the invasion of Sicily, where he circumvents the agreed upon plan of the attack, putting him out of favor with his superiors. After attacking a shell-shocked soldier in an army hospital, he is relieved of his duty. Around the events of the D-Day, he is designated as the commander of the fictional First United States Army Group meant to serve as a decoy. He pleads with his superiors to let him take part in the action before the war ends, and he is given the command of the Third Army, sweeping across France and then driving into Germany. Shortly after the war Patton’s outspoken ways land him out of favor once again and he loses his command, but he is still respected for his wartime achievements.

Patton was a man who loved war. He saw it as a thing of honor to be able to fight for his country. More than that, he believed it to be his destiny and purpose to lead men throughout WWII. The war was a story to him that would be told throughout the ages and he wanted the leading role. The story begins in the midst of the Second World War where his destiny begins. It follows all of his military exploits from that point. We see everything of his joys of controlling the realms of battle to his frustration and misery at spending time waiting for his next assignment.
Normally it would be difficult for an actor to keep open these various views about his character. But luckily they made a perfect casting choice for the role. Scott balances every part of Patton's life seamlessly. The film delivers a powerful portrait of one of the most controversial figures of the American military. It captures the man's admiration of war showing us the beauty and honor that he saw in battle. It's a brilliant example of when a great actor is given a great script and cinematic history is born.

Not much can be said of this movie that already hasn't been said. It captures the war, the man, and the conflict of the two. I thought the movie was very nicely tied together and I thought the reflections of Patton on the past was very necessary. Patton believed in reincarnation so in looking back at historical battles you can see how Patton developed his strategy. He was a student of great leaders and commanders and the movie developed that thought really well. The movie presented the characters, the actual war history, and the Germans extremely well and it is no wonder this movie received the awards it did. After watching this movie over and over again, I'm convinced that no one could have played Patton any better than George C. Scott. You can tell from the movie that he put everything he had into the character. My father-in-law was an officer under Patton in the 3rd. Army and has said over and again how realistic the movie is. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for an excellent re-telling of WWII history.
