"Fury" is no more and no less a decent war film about the pressures of combat.

Who would have thought a team of 5 lead by Wardaddy and a tank would be so entertaining. The tank was really utilized and the violence and realism of war was well depicted here. No pretentions or preachy dialogue, just plain ol shoot em-up war flick on camaraderie and trust.

An idealistic raw recruit is assigned to a tank crew commanded by grizzled combat veteran Brad Pitt during the Allied invasion of Germany in the latter stages of World War II.
David Ayer’s contribution to the “war is Hell” genre is rooted firmly in the grim realities of day-to-day combat, where violence is a way of life, brutality is commonplace and ugly murder the norm. The tank crew is a strange assortment who have little in common and bicker and fight amongst themselves constantly, but once the shooting starts share a bond of trust and absolute loyalty. The story revolves around the relationship between battle-hardened pragmatist Pitt and young, fresh-faced Logan Lerman and they go through the usual “learning to respect each other” motions that are common to the genre. …

Fury gets war right - it's not glamorous, it's not fun - it's dirty, it's mean and it will change you. The crew of Fury has been through it all - Africa, cleaning up after D-Day, Belgium and now they find themselves in Germany, the war nearly over, but still plenty of people to kill. They have just lost their tail-gunner and the replacement is a recruit 8 weeks in, formerly a typist. He doesn't know how he got there, doesn't really want to be in a tank crew - but that's where he is. I wish the film had gone more in depth with these characters - Lerman and Pitt are given some elements to work with, but everyone else (Peña, LaBeouf and Bernthal) are pretty much broad strokes (angry, religious, insane). If it had been deeper, it would have been better - but at least it portrays war in the …

David Ayer's WW2 ensemble piece is as hardened and unrelenting as the tank crew it focuses on. The gritty style and somber tone of his direction sometimes reminded me of Saving Private Ryan though 'Fury' is not on that level despite its hopes and constant efforts to convince viewers otherwise.
That said, the acting is surprisingly good all across the board. We've seen all these characters before in other war movies but the script turns it on its head by suggesting each stock character is merely putting on a facade to deal with the ceaselessly brutal conditions of war.
Logan Lerman serves as the audience's POV while Brad Pitt is solid as the stoic tank commander 'Wardaddy'. Shia LaBeouf and Jon Bernthal work as great foils of each other;LaBeouf plays a devout Christian and Bernthal is …
