      Steve C When the game (war) ends kings (generals) and pawns (foot soldiers) go into the same box. A sobering reminder that we all shall face the end. How will you face it? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review John A A very needless sequel that didn't receive the budget and filmmaking team that it needed to really work. George C. Scott's commitment is sadly wasted. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/19/23 Full Review Audience Member When you have time watch this movie whit George C Scott was amazing playing Patoon part 2 the one thing I got out of this is how not one leader like Eisenhower who was in Germany should have showed up. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Most sequels following winning titles in the second half of the 20th century tends to falter due to the unreliable casting that doesn't capture the original, or just turned out inferior. Thankfully, this sequel to the 1970 Best Picture winner proves itself worthy towards completeness, despite the smaller scale as a television film that breaks itself like how old serials worked. George C. Scott continues his portrayal within the original range as a definitive portrayal for the titular figure, with more emotions added into his character while leading the rest of the cast's decent performances. The storyline is the same as well in a way of being historically accurate - even though the credibility is slightly questionable - and the technical supportive structures (aka cinematic devices) expressed things well as usual, even though the overall scale isn't quite as epic as the original. But it's understandable considering that it's solely chronicling Patton's memories and reaching up to his final moments. If you've seen "Patton", then "The Last Days of Patton" is a worthwhile second part of the double feature, just to avoid a lengthy amount of time in-between the two. (B+) (Full review TBD) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member A Great Companion to the 1970 hit, and a must-watch for military buffs. I only wish it had been filmed in a better format than 4:3 for television.
