Movie Review: FURY










“Ideals are peaceful, War is violent”    -WarDaddy (Brad Pitt)

Movie Synopsis

April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Out-numbered, out-gunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

Fury is a World War II movie depicting a tank crew on the German front.  The movie starts off bringing you a glimpse into how the crew works together to overcome adversity with having them in a broken down tank, after a large scale battle.  They struggle to repair their tank, while trying not to be discovered by German patrols, so they can return to their base.

Fury  has a great cast, all of which fill their roles perfectly.  Brad Pitt (WarDaddy), Shai LaBeouf (Bible), Logan Lerman (Norman), Michael Pena (Gordo), Jon Bernthal (Coon-Ass) all play their characters as good as you would expect.  They each are well suited for their characters, and the onscreen chemistry between them is perfect.  There is a slight lack of depth to the character development and back-story, but enough to get you through the movie, but with the movie running at over 2 hrs, any more time spent on character development would really make the movie too long.  That being said, there is enough action to keep the movie flowing along well.

Being a war movie, there is a lot of fighting, explosions and emotional turmoil that you will find in just about any war movie.  There were also a few good places where the movie will make you jump, which really enhances the experience.

Overall I enjoyed this movie a lot.  Being a big fan of “Saving Private Ryan” this movie will surely be added my my collection of favorites.
