      Audience Member a little revisionist history here or shall we say historically inacurate. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member It does contain some well excuted moments, and a couple of well acted characters, but it's all off set by a confusing plot, an anti climatic ending and a few poor scenes and characters. It's an okay film, although the conspiracy around George Patton was unessecary. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review bill t Fun little 70's "what if?" movies that ties in two unrelated things and tries to connect them, and then tries to invent conspiracy theories. It's like Inglorious Basterds 1970s style. There's a plot out to kill Patton (played rather George-Kennedishly by George Kennedy) and it's up to John Cassevetes and Sophia Loren to stop it! Oh yes, there's a gold theft in there somewhere as well, as well as the story of the assassin too. Somewhat hard to follow, but enjoyable nevertheless. Max Von Sydow is so smarmy and greasy here, he steals the show. OH RIGHT, there's also the amazing Robert Vaughn, playing WAY over type, playing a general with a secret gay boyfriend. So good! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Conspiracy theory tying General Patton's strange death with stolen German gold at the end of WWII. Story and sets show excellent attention to detail. Contains several actors who would go on to be guest stars on Columbo. Poster better than film.

      Joe Leydon The Moving Picture Show "Brass Target" is fool’s gold. Sep 4, 2022 Full Review Richard T. Jameson Parallax View In a year of generally insipid commercial cinema, Brass Target manages to be actively disgusting, and just possibly degrading. Sep 18, 2010 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It wants us to believe that General George S. Patton didn't die in a car accident, as history says, but at the hands of a paid assassin. Rated: C- Jul 1, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews
