    Oscar worthy, gritty, warts & all WWII tank story

    FURY is every bit as Oscar-worthy as the far less thoughtful AMERICAN SNIPER, but its warts-and-all gritty-ness about an Africa-to-Germany WWII US Sherman tank crew is nothing like the rah-rah whitewashing of "military service" that has become the standard of late. All of the tanks driven in the film are museum pieces in fine working order. The special effects of the tank battles are breathtaking in their "realism" (even if WWII tanks rarely engaged in open-field, run-and-gun cannon duels). Pitt's Wardaddy is very likely a reinlisted WWI veteran, older, wiser, craftier and more battle scarred (literally) than his battle-hardened crew. Having served togther since Africa without a crew fatality, having carried the battle into Germany, a beloved comrade dies in battle. Is Fury's luck running out? Out-classed and over-matched by the German Tiger tanks, Shermans die three-to-one in bloody confrontations. Inject into this scenario the never-been-to-Tank-School replacement "assistant driver," Private Norman, a six-weeks member of the US Army clerical corps. Yes, this type of story has been told before, BUT NEVER IN THIS WAY. No matter how honestly unflattering each of the individual character portrayals maybe, the heroism of the group is what carries the story and this film. This is a fractious band of brothers, struggling, ordeal-after-ordeal, to do the right thing. Even though the "end game" in the European Theater of War has begun, each and every pitched battle in the Fatherland claims lives just as if the war had just begun. Soldiers must fight to defeat the N+a+z+i+s, but who wants to die at the end of (any) war? Well woth multiple viewings and the BluRay-only added extras are well worth it, too.

    Worth a rental but not a Saving Private Ryan

    First off let me preface my review summary that I love well executed war movies and with the technology available to movie makers today brings out the realism. Band of Brothers in my opinion is the reference standard on picture, story, and visuals for war movies. This movies had some of these elements but fell short on the story department. There were two many gaps in the backgrounds of what made this rag tag tank drivers to make a believable and compelling group to invest yourself in them. The action was good when it came in the story but the story overall was flat. I was very disappointed as I was told that this movie was better than Saving Private Ryan and that is just not the case. I love tanks especially from WWII and there was only one tank battle scene with a real Panzer Tiger tank which was cool and pretty accurate as to the toughness of the Panzer Tanks. Between that and the finally where they are outnumbered and outgunned were the best parts of the movie and even that lacked realism as you will note when a German Grenade is dropped into the cabin of the Tank and our lone survivor comes back to find his commander dead all in one piece with just the wounds that he sustained from a previous battle. This surprised me the most considering the in the beginning of the movie the newbie tank gunner is asked to clean out the tank of the leftovers from the guy he is replacing and it is pretty gruesome. If you like war movies, tanks, and some pretty cool action scenes this movie is worth a rent and I wished I had done just that. The Blu-Ray transfer itself is top quality and the picture and sound are great just wished it was a better movie that warranted Blu-Ray.

    One of the best war movies ever!

    After just seeing the film opening day in theaters I am already anxious to get the BluRay DVD. The movie was gut wrenching and excellent. After more than 50 years of being a WWII Historian with emphasis on Armor, someone has finally made "The Tank Movie" of all time. Also, the film goes down in history for having the first REAL German Tiger 1 ever seen live in film history. The Tiger 131 can be seen all over YouTube at the Bovington Tank Museums Tank Fest. Movie theaters do play the sound painfully loud and that only made the experience more gut wrenching. To have the new recliner seats in theaters today literally vibrating from the concussions certainly didn't help. I think what makes it worse for an Armor buff and WWII enthusiast is knowing the details and weapons capabilities of that period. Just hearing the word Panzerfaust makes one cringe. They certainly portrayed the statistics right in needing 4 - 5 Shermans to overwhelm one Tiger. I also have a new found respect for Shermans as I never thought they could endure so much. This film has now surpassed Saving Pvt Ryan as the most fierce WWII film I have seen to date. I've read that the film makers consulted with many British WWII Tankers while making this film. I can see and appreciate the authenticity their life's memories have contributed to the details of the film. I rarely go to the theaters ever anymore, but this film I knew I would have to see opening day!!

    Gritty and Realistic

    Wow...what movie. I wanted to see it in the theater but my wife had surgery while it was playing and I never made it. Bought it the first day it was available on Blu-ray. This is one of the most realistic WWII movies I have seen. I have read numerous eye-witness accounts of WWII battles and seen documentaries and theatrical movies as well but seldom have I seen a work of fiction which so accurately portrayed what our fathers and grandfathers went through during the war. I realize that a great deal of what was in the movie used CGI but the people working the keyboards knew exactly what they were doing. The acting was excellent although I felt that the tank crew could have toned it down just a bit. Brad Pitt certainly conveyed what a tank commander facing heavy odds must have felt during the last days of the war. The costuming was perfect and the weapons extremely accurate, right down to the pin-up girl on the grips of Pitt's .45 revolver. The movie bogged down one time, when the tankers went home with the German girl and her mother. While I understood what the director was trying to say, it just seemed to run on and on. I certainly recommend this movie for anyone wanting to see a realistic account of tank warfare during WWII but be warned that it is VERY realistic and may be too intense for some viewers, especially anyone who has seen combat first-hand.

    Another Anti-War Propoganda Movie

    This movie reminded me of an Oliver Stone "war is hell and is really effed up" anti-war propaganda movie, without any of the redeeming qualities which can also be found during war, such as the comaraderie, brotherhood, mutual trust and friendship which develops among people who spend a lot of time together under difficult circumstances. The director hardly misses a chance to provide terrible examples of inhumanity, crazy, cruel and murderous soldiers, and other ridiculously effed up situations. For every "Fury" tank crew, there were thousands of other tank crews who were truly brothers in arms. While it is true that sometimes, some of these things do happen in war, but the vast majority of our troops act according to the Law of Land Warfare, and acquit themselves honorably in battle. Engaging in War should never be for frivolous reasons, there are times it is a necessary evil to defeat an existential threat. I will file this David Ayer movie under the same category as all Oliver Stone movies which I personally will not watch. This film has none of the redeeming qualities of Saving Private Ryan or Lone Survivor. Watch those instead and skip this one.

    The acting was well done. For a war movie, the plot was like many others, but I struggled to connect with any of the characters. First things first: War is violent and cruel. The director definitely made the point with that. None of the characters had any redemptive qualities and it was difficult to 'connect' with their decisions/actions with each other. I loved Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan; even liked Full Metal Jacket and Platoon as rough movies, but brotherhood movies. But that is because the characters had some humorous or real emotional moments. None of these characters seemed to care about the man to their left and right....but at the end of the day, this is not a movie about brothers, or redemption. The title says it all....

    Great movie- shame on the bonus disc

    I loved the depiction of war in this World War 2 movie as Brad Pitt's Wardaddy says ideals are peaceful, but history is violent. He receives a new tank driver who is a transfer from the Army typist unit and off the Fury tank crew goes on a new mission in the last days of World War 2 in Germany as the Germans keeping fighting (even though a lot of killing will be done before the war is over). It is a gritty look at the effect war has on the tank crew as life is hard on them and everyone involved in the war (from the soldiers to the civilians). David Ayers does an excellent job directing FURY with Brad Pitt giving the best performance. The deleted and extended scenes give extra character development on the tank crew and a little about another tank crew plus how Wardaddy ended up in the Army. The best feauturettes are on the Best Buy bonus disc which means if you didn't buy FURY at Best Buy, you will miss behind-the-scenes making-of extras are better than the bts fluff that is on the regular blu-ray . Track down the bonus disc version while you can if you are a fan of making-of extras.
