I would like to hear your opinion.

I loved it, but even though I said that, I have to tell you what I didn't particularly like. And remember--I'm not a professional here. I'm just commenting as a viewer.
I truly, truly, TRULY loved the documentary look to this, because combined with the music, it simply worked for me and was outstanding. And I LOVED seeing those weapons scenes where they weren't necessarily firing--because that's where the real tension is anyway. Anyone can pull the trigger and show the thing go bang, and that's no big deal. But combined with the music, what you did really built a suspense for the action to come.
However, I thought that every time you cut to the main character, he just didn't fit the rest of what was going on there. His expressions looked fake.
I'm hoping that this is only a case of picking the wrong shots of him to use for the trailer, but he just doesn't look all that heroic or convincing for this great drama that is about to unfold.
In other words, putting the film aside and JUST talking about the trailer, I think it would have been better to show him more as a non-hero at first, and building up to becoming one.
Of course, this might have nothing to do with the story at all, so take that for what it's worth.
And remember that it's really easy for me to critique from here, having done absolutely nothing myself. But this sounds like a GREAT story and project and I wish you all of the suerte in the mundo!
All you have to do now is teach ignorant American youth who Patton actually was.
