War Daddy- Ideals are peaceful. History is violent.
“War. War never changes” Ron Pearlman- Fallout 3 this is Fury.
Fury, a World War II film written and directed by David Ayer is one of the most realistic and entertaining war movies I have seen since Black Hawk Down. Fury stars Brad Pitt as War Daddy, Shia Lebeouf, and a bible wielding tank man named church, Micheal Pen, and Norman, played by Logan lerman of Perks of being a Wallflower fame.
The movie was so intense and brutally realistic depictions of war.The film picks up after the allies are into Germany after d-day and towards the final days of the war. Fury follows a group of tank drivers and small arms group. Brad Pitts group of soldiers lose their tank driver and must take on a rookie in Logan Lerman. Fury shows graphic depictions of the tanks shooting and killing their enemies, in what only I can say is, an awesome fashion. The film has some amazing gunfire scenes. One thing I will not soon forget is the amount of bodies laying around. The tanks constantly roll over dead bodies.
The crew and Norman don’t get along well from the get go, except for Pitt’s character War Daddy. They start to bond after they win a crucial battle for German town. they take over a house that has two young women. This is one of the best parts of the film. Its incredibly touching to see Pitt’s tragic hero just want to savor his victory and his eggs.
Fury continues these men’s journey into enemy territory and shows the relationship between a close knit group of soldiers trying to overcome the adversity of war.
Fury is one of the best films I have watched this year. The sound is an unheralded hero in this film. It is just amazing. The gunfire is relentlessness and gives never gives you a break,making you feel as if you are with the boys of Fury and in the action. I give Fury 8/10, I loved it from beginning to end. Fury is now available on DVD/Bluray.- Justin
