FURY : Thou Shalt Not

In single word, Fury was disillusionment. Only one more endeavor to disclose WWII stories, which to my utter disappointment went futile, has Fury for its wide peered toward onlookers. David Ayer (End of Watch acclaim), composed and steered Fury which portrays the story of a tank and its crew members.

The motion picture is moderate and very unsurprising; not at all like other war films like The Pianist & Schindler’s List. It begins from demonstrating a rebellious endeavor on the WWII monstrosities. An armed force sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt) is the man of the tank; who’s in control and does all the courageous exercises. He’s frequently masked as a solid man, despite the fact that he noiselessly hollers in corner and censures his endeavors to break down before his group.

Shia Labeouf (Boyd “Biblical canon” Swan) made a great showing of crying once in a while with what small amount to no part he needs to play in the motion picture. Logan Lerman (Norman Ellison) is an adolescent typewritest, who is compelled to join the armed force and is for the most part a petrified and on edge fellow. Among all, he came as a known endeavor at demonstrating how lives change over the time of era and generally of the individuals who have no business in war. Michael Peña (Trini “Gordo” Garcia) didn’t do much which is worth the notice however his part was significant enough to pull. Finally, Jon Bernthal (Grady ‘Coon-Ass’ Travis) was the pressing kid of the tank who continued taking Logan’s case all the time and leaving the rest for his horrifying endeavors.

Dwarfed and outgunned, the group confronts challenges up and down the way which is clearly overseen by the man of the tank, Brad Pitt. The motion picture had a splendid chance to demonstrate the American side of the war; its stories and perplexing truths, however on the restricted area it was lost in the midst of the pretend of 5 team men and their goodies.

The winning piece of the movie was Logan’s reaction to just about everything that was going on, generally everything else of average and waning with its subtleties. Something else that film squandered its endeavors on was presenting pointless characters with no reason to serve. (Case1: A young lady who gazes at Logan before all else.)

On the off chances, there is splendid brotherhood between the characters, trust and feeling of trustworthiness which is decently demonstrated.

Goof up: In the last scene, it has been demonstrated that Nazis toss 2 major grenades inside the tank exactly at the side of Brad Pitt. In spite of the fact that the character dies yet two explosives of that size ought to be sufficient to blow the tank, yet in the film there is not a solitary scar all over Brad’s face.

Enough said, this movie was a big disappointment for me.

  1. Filled with war movie clichés. Nothing close to “Saving Private Ryan” or “All Quiet on the Western Front”.

    More Goof ups :
    1) A crack SS battalion continually commits suicide by walking in front of the machine guns of the crippled tank (instead of walking round the back)
    2) Leaving the ammo outside of the tank while preparing for the ambush.

    and probably much more..

    Pitt gave a great performance in Inglorious Basterds (ironically a WWII film), and here he was just dull.

    • Oh indeed it was. Pitt didn’t do any good here, leave alone the actors. Logan was good though. Too naive and ingenuous all the time.

  2. Now, this some real war crafting down here. It has been written with utmost beauty and intellectualism. The period of World War is always a baffling and encroaching appease to read to.
    The war movies have shown what actual trauma people have gone with. To our amusement it is due to some war, that we got many new things which we are using today. The literature, art, architecture etc. are some of the fields to name to it.
    And, this one right here is a very awesome review of David Ayer’s masterpiece in 1945 Fury. While IMDb has given it 8 out of 10, I prefer it to be as 7.
    The caste was good, but somehow story telling was missing and moreover, Pitt could have pulled his character really better.

  3. I agree with your review of the movie, the story telling was bad but actors did their part OK.
    If you are interested in American side of war, I would recommend “The Monuments Men”
