  2. The coming of the first ‘Fury‘ trailer from director David Ayer (‘End of Watch,’ ‘The Fast and Furious’) brings with it a harsh look at the toll of war, as Brad Pitt leads the charge against the Nazis with his own band of brothers, of sorts, and one mighty tank.

    It’s April, 1945, in the midst of World War II, as Pitt’s sergeant “Wardaddy” leads his tank, Fury, and his team into battle. As he says, “Ideals are peaceful, history is violent.” We’ve already gone behind the scenes of ‘Fury’ and received the first poster, but we hadn’t seen anything beyond jagged bits of footage before this. Though, the cast of supporting characters, including Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman (‘Noah,’ ‘Percy Jackson’), Jon Bernthal (‘The Walking Dead‘), Michael Pena (Ayer’s ‘End of Watch’ buddy), Jason Isaacs (‘Harry Potter’) and even Scott Eastwood (Clint Eastwood’s magazine-ad son), is enough to pique interest.

    From the official plot synopsis:
    As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, 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’ will be in cinemas on November 14.
     
  3. Really liking what I see of this, few things better than a good boys own adventure and this seems to be rather dark and supposedly is quite accurate.

    I'm liking the look of this, Pena and Pitt are excellent as is Logan Lerman who's turning in some fine performances. Yeah Shia LeBeouf isn't everyone's cup of tea but Ayer has made some good films and Pitt is always great if the material is right. One of the film's I'm looking forward too.

  6. Saw it the other night. It was entertaining but I expected more given all the hype about it. I certainly wouldn't count it as one of the best war films out there.
     
  7. Saw this movie yesterday with my dad. I initially came out thinking it was a great war film. Just the right amount of drama and fighting you can expect from a war movie. But on reflection I may have gotten a little over excited tbh.

    The end battle was a little over the top. No way would the 300 Waffen SS be taken so easily like that. It was like watching Stormtroopers from Star Wars or something. The whole heroic fight to the death thing was just typical Hollywood.

    Also Brad Pitt was a little ridiculous as times. The SS throw two grenades into the tank and it has very little impact. Brad Pitt's body would have been almost unrecognizable giving how close he was to the grenades. In fact the scene where Norman had to clean the inside of the tank, including the remains of the dead solider who he replaced was a better indication of what would have happened. It's almost like the Director insisted on given Pitt as much face time on camera as he could.

    Either way, I liked the film anyway but it wasn't the best.

  8. Agree with everything here, thought it was a really good WW2 movie up until the end scene where it got a little Hollywood (but still enjoyed it).

    Being a bit pedantic, but I don't think those stick grenades would do that sort of damage, they're not high explosives like you would get now adays, think more pipe-bomb effect, being shredded by shrapnel is more likely to happen, you'd bleed out rather than be turned to mush.
     
  9. A shining example of how to ruin a film in the final act. Such a car crash of an ending.

    Otherwise a decent military combat film that's quite a gripping spectacle at times. The few stand out scenes are really quite excellent and glued together without losing too much momentum.

    That is until the end where I went from enjoying it to thinking "ah ffs" :rolleyes:o_O
     
  10. I watched this last night. War films are not something I would be drawn initially to but I thought this was good - a different final scene and it would have been excellent.

    Made me think about the level of PTSD veterans must have had after the war, how do you go back to normal life after experiencing so much chaos, suffering and death.
