Fury – Review (Midnight Movie Madness)

Fury Review (Midnight Movie Madness)

Writer/Director David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch) takes the term “war is hell” to a whole new level with his latest film starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman, Fury.

So continues my Midnight Movie Madness video series here on Movie-Moron, where I’m breaking down the latest releases with a look at their background, and my take on whether they’re any good:

Fury is out now in the US and UK.

    [minor spoilers] I liked the movie but didn’t love it. The concept of a tank unit pushing into Germany in the last weeks of the war is great. There were lots of good ideas and it was enjoyable watching the armour on the move. I thought Lerman was good and Pitt was excellent. Shia I thought was trying hard but was kinda crap. Besides from praying I never got a clear sense of who his character was. One moment he was calm as a cucumber and then the very next shot he’s doing those teary super-stressed eyes again, a trick he did way too often. Generally every scene was almost terrific but held back by a character action or moment that didn’t ring true. The German division at the end were so laughably inept, it took just one man and a rocket launcher to cook the tank at the beginning, but 300 men, many of whom were armed with the same, became completely useless for the sake of the plot. And Lerman finding that person in the rubble was so contrived, they might as well have been cross-eyed. Ayer is no Spielberg, Saving Private Ryan shook me watching it in the cinema, this was a decent thriller with star power. 7/10

    Good movie.
    but if you want to see tank battles recreated with real armour the soviet era Tank Brigade 1955 will never be topped. Thousands of extras actual WWII tanks and lots of real artillery. On the down side it is a totalitarian propaganda movie.

      No mystery, most people probably don’t even know Americans fought in a Korean war. Same reason they don’t make movies about Brits in the Boer War, it doesn’t have built-in public awareness.

        WWII is the best war for movies. It has clearly defined bad guys who belong to a weird cult with a fondness for lots of satanic looking symbolism lead by an evil maniac bent on world domination. If WWII hadn’t happened it would have been the most outlandish James Bond plot ever conceived!

        The problem with Korean war is that it was very complex without a satisfying resolution. Despite being a very big very costly war involving troops from all over the world it just sort of petered out into a stand off. Not rousing enough to compete with WWII and not angsty enough to go down the Vietnam or WWI routs.
