Following the close of World War II, General George S. Patton is seriously injured in a car accident and not expected to survive. "The Last Days of Patton" tells the story of these last few months of the General's life and the Army Medical Corps efforts to save him. Intermixed with flashbacks, the film also shows Patton's earlier career as a fledging tank commander during the First World War. Written by

George C. Scott is one of my favorite actors and I have loved most of his movies. However, I thoroughly hated The Last Days of Patton! It was tedious, uninvolving and completely unnecessary! They should have just let the story end with the original movie Patton. Or, perhaps they could have re-released the original movie with a much shorter version of The Last Days of Patton as an epilogue.
Think about it for a moment, just days or weeks after the end of what happened in the movie Patton ended, the general was critically injured in a freak auto accident. He remained paralyzed with a vice-like device screwed into his head for a short time until he died as a result of these injuries. All this, plus a couple flashbacks are the entire basis for this movie!!! Dull, depressing and a waste of time!
