    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.

    Much better than I expected and is a movie even women will enjoy. It is more about relationships built in war and less about the war.

The cast is great,This film was a great war movie and was a really the best WW2 film I can think of to come out in the last 4 years about. The cast is great, Brad Pitt and all the rest making a great team and an interesting one, and even though this tank team does have some typical characters you find in WW2 movies (the religious one, the trouble maker, the scared one, the battle hardened leader) they play their roles each so well that you really enjoying watching all their screen time. Effects look great and the film was deliciously savage in gore which I didn’t exit to be so brutal but it adds to the effect of the overall film. The direction can make you feel claustrophobic at times which may help add to the immersion of the men inside the tank but you do get to fully witness the battles that go on throughout too.
    However, I did find some scenes a little clichéd and unnecessary to try develop characters but they didn’t properly detracted from the overall movie. Some of the unnecessary scenes did add to the characters but they seemed a little forced into the story and properly could’ve developed them in other ways.
    Basically, go see this film for the chemistry and acting of the main tank men and for the full visceral immersion the film brings of tank fighting in WW2. It really does portray how bleak it was and how morally questionable us “good guys” in the war were. Good film, give it a watch.

You don't learn much about the characters, Don't growWell acted and entertaining enough but the quality of the script is certainly lacking. You don't learn much about the characters, Don't grow attached to them in the slightest. Thus making it tough to care about them and that's sort of key when you are trying to do a war based drama film. It's still worthy of a rental but not as amazing as everyone says it is. Expand
