The big problem with this film is the opening scene. You've got the whole movie to watch, but nothing will top that opening scene.
What first appears to be tribute to a war mongering asshole turns into a really interesting character study
one of those movies the word epic was made for
A classic war drama. Lead actor George C. Scott brings to life General George S. Patton with all his flaws and genius. The movie is a bit long but if you’re interested in military history it’s an easy watch.

george c scott the master.
Certaines des prises de vue sont de ... Russ MEYER, alors caméraman des actualités hebdomadaires filmées de l'US Army en 1944, sous le commandement du général lui-même.
With a screenplay by Coppola (that wisely shows both sides of the man) and an outstanding performance by Scott, this biopic is an extensive and gripping look at Patton.
