    At its best, Fury examines the psychological experience of warfare.

    Like Ayer’s cop flicks, Fury is a gripping ride all the way through, if somewhat restricted in its emotional and visual range.

    Fury is literally visceral— a kind of war horror film, which is, of course, what good combat films should be.

    Within this gore-spattered, superficially nihilistic carapace is an old-fashioned platoon picture, a sensitive and superbly acted tale of male bonding under duress.

    It’s engaging and watchable, even as it marches toward a seemingly suicidal climax. Yet the complex dynamic between Wardaddy and his men is far more fascinating.

    It’s all very Peckinpah — or at least it could be, if Ayer had any sense of poetry.

    Fury is a war movie with balls of steel and marbles for brains.

It takes pieces form various veteren's stories of the war and makes it into one brutal war movie about loss and about dealing with what soldiers have to do in war. The main character is a boy (well, a very young man) who got transfered from typing about the war to fighting in a tank. The emotions he goes through are displayed well by the superb acting (everyone's acting is well done). I'd recommend this movie to any fans of World War II movies. Expand

It does so remarkably, until it fails in the final 30min lasting showdown, in which 5 guys destroy an entire battalion of 300 German elite soldiers, one that is heavily armed and fitted with tank busting Panzerfausts, one that manages to flank the detracked armor, yet gets annihilated like chickens in a mechanized slaughterhouse. Like Spielberg's last battle scene in the village of SPR, in the manner of old "Call of Duty", the hordes of nihilistic death wishing lemmings of German elites simply run straight into the Sherman's lines of tracers - in the hundreds. For 30 minutes. If you want a good war movie, three fourths of this movie is watchable and great fun. The last part just lets you shake your head in disbelief, and you don't need to be a history enthusiast to realize that the revengism always pulls through in the end, a classic theme ending most American warmovies these days. Somehow the directors fail to realize that this breaks the entire impression, kills the immersion of the movie, and does grand injustice to the actors' otherwise great job. One really must feel sorry for them. Expand
