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 his 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, one of the few films out this year that I actually stumbled into watching. The character development of the majority of the characters are spectacular, as it really convinced me that they were a band of brothers. The tank design was actually well done as well, which is not normal for a war film. Brad Pitt, Mark Ruffalo, and Logan Lerman all performed very well unlike their counterparts.
Fury was an enjoyable film, but I did have a few issues with it. The film was overly lengthy, as I could cut at least 45 minutes of footage and it still could be good. The majority of the supporting cast was quite disappointing, especially with the impressive cast list. What did y’all think of Fury? Let me know in the comments below.
- Half main cast performance.
- Tank design.
- Supporting cast performance.
- Logic loop holes.
- Some lack of character development.
SCORE: 6.5 / 10
