Critic Reviews of "The Patrol"London Evening StandardFebruary 28, 2014
Unfortunately, the writing and acting aren't quite sharp enough to make The Patrol a must-see for curious liberals. And the visual effects will underwhelm audiences in search of action.Observer (UK)February 09, 2014
The wearing tedium of conflict is effectively evoked, broken occasionally by bursts of violence that are rightly harrowing.Flick FilosopherFebruary 07, 2014
A rough experience, bracingly free of the usual macho posturing that characterizes movies about the military, and a compassionate and humane portrait of modern soldiering.GuardianFebruary 06, 2014
First-time British writer-director Tom Petch makes a powerful impression with this tough, smart war movie on a shrewdly managed small scale, about a British army patrol in Afghanistan.Little White LiesFebruary 06, 2014
This bungled sortie in Helmand province presents a robust idea that's been executed poorly.The ListFebruary 04, 2014
A well executed minor drama that casts a careful life on the inner lives of military personnel, and promises good things to come in terms of the young cast, and Tom Petch's future career.Empire MagazineFebruary 03, 2014
This is an unsparing and occasionally bleak look at the frustrations of fighting an unwinnable war with inadequate gear.Total FilmFebruary 03, 2014
It's a solid debut, with Petch's evocative location filming (in Morocco) and pyrotechnic flourishes belying his low budget.
