"Director Sam Newfield’s penchant for the use of modern gadgets is evidenced once more in The Ghost Patrol. This time he has Tim McCoy flying an airplane! The plot is unique, interesting and far ahead of its time. The idea of planes being brought down by powerful electric rays may seem far-fetched but it is woven into the fabric of the plot so well that you hardly notice its fanciful tone. Tim McCoy, as always, does justice to the role of an investigative G-man. The ray-producing machine shown towards the end is truly futuristic for the times. The ghost town too is portrayed with a lot of imagination and has a true-life quality about it. Witness this futuristic western thriller, which will keep you on the edge of your seats till the end!"
