Very realistic, great technical direction and even better acting

Wow, if you are a history buff and know about militaria and military equipment, this movie is a great one to watch.

The movie has an actual Tiger I tank, the last remaining operating one in the world. The equipment used by both sides looks quite authentic. As a combat vet I can attest that the depictions of combat scenes are quite accurate! I found myself ducking when I saw the tracer rounds on the big screen; the camera work is superior.

As a side note, the Sherman tanks depicted were in fact quite vulnerable to enemy fire and this is also depicted in the story line. We should remember this side note when we talk about equipping our military today and in the future.

In the end I was quite moved by this story and felt a profound sense of sorrow for those who endured this horrific war as well as my eternal gratitude to those who fought so bravely and defeated the Axis.

Poor portrayal
Verified purchase
Based on the countless veterans I've met and talked to and the many books I read about World War II, I believe the behavior exhibited by "Wardaddy" and the rest of Fury's crew was absurd. Sorry I wasted $7.99 on the film. Save your money and use it to help pay for "Spearhead" by Adam Makos, the true story of an American tank gunner and the crew he served with in the 3rd Armored Division in the closing days of the war against Germany.

A sucker punch to your gut.

I'm thinking that this was some fine acting by the whole cast. By that stage of the war only the fanatics were left. I used to work with some old men who fought in that. They didn't mess with prisoners. Just the way it was. This movie stresses that killing is the only way to stop what was going on. Morality took a hike for safer country, because moral folks got killed by the young German boys. I was told that often they were hopped up on amphetamines, schnapps, and ether. That they had to be shot in the head to stop them. This movie didn't go into that. It did show the real hatred for the SS troops. Factually history shows that a lot of them were summarily shot when captured. Most people don't realize that there was a running fight with holdouts for a couple of years after the war.

Fighting that Tiger tank showed what normally happened. American tanks were truly mismatched, and the General Staff knew it. Essentially, they threw tank crews at the Germans and they were slaughtered. American close air support and tank destroyers made the difference. The Sherman tank was a real disaster when facing German high velocity tank Cannon. They used gasoline instead of diesel. Fury shows what happened.

I'm an armchair historian. I appreciate the accuracy of this movie. There weren't any heroes. That type of person was killed earlier in the war. Like War Daddy said.....This thing will be over when we get thru killing them.

Having said all of that, in real life Norm would have been shot. Those combat vets were extremely brutal. That's the only reason why they were still alive. That's what a real vet won't tell you. If a man can't hold up his end, he is a weak link that gets cut. Like I was told, soldiers were told they had to feed their prisoners from their own rations. So, really, the best a German soldier could hope for was that officers saw the surrender. Otherwise, what happened to that German soldier wasn't rare at all.

This isn't a movie for delicate snowflakes. There's no Justice on a battlefield.

Keep These Movies Coming

It seems many Military movies are grand epics and such. I love those, but I also like movies such as this. I snapshot showing what real war was like back then. While my father said that most soldiers did not act the way portrayed here, many did. The violence of the war here was very realistic and needed to be shown. People did not come out of war zones looking they just came out of a spa.

The detail of the movie was excellent, Sherman tanks, little details like the sounds a specific shell makes when wheezing by, the in city fighting, and most important, at this stage of the war, the actual makeup of german troops at this stage, young, women and children, and the hatred of the SS troops, the demons the allied forces hated.

Also, to major point, it demonstrates the heroism of the young undistinguished soldier. Some may say this "glorifies war" but that is a falsehood..if glorifies heroism, and the heroes themselves. They were real.

The acting was great, and the story itself made it known towards then end. The transformation of a raw recruit, never exposed to violence, untrained, and thrown into the grinder. At the ending 20 minutes of the movie, I conciously said "oh THAT'S WHY" they had those previous scenes. Very well written, told, and executed.

This holds a revered place in my Military Movie Collection. Keep good stories coming!

Great video for tank fans

This review is not about the movie and about the disk. The blu ray is the best version of Fury compared to streaming 1080p as the compression is far less. Colors and details are sharp and bright, and the dolby sound is theater like. I've seen Fury on cable, NetFlix and the bluray is clearly superior. There are enough extras in the disk for another 2 hours of video, so the disk gives 4 hours of viewing.

The cinematography of a live M4A1E8 Sherman and the Tiger 1 are among better action sequences filmed for tanks, even for a movie, so if you like this sort of thing, Fury can't be beat. Too much CGI is used on other movies and very unrealistic if you've even seen such tanks move in life; Popular tanks movies like Battle of the Bulge and Patton do not use authentic period tanks.

Fury has pros and cons, but most viewers agree the equipment used were fairly accurate to WWII of 1945 vintage.

Great WW2 Movie!

Wardaddy::"Ideals are peaceful. History is violent." Seriously, this is without a doubt among the greatest war movies I've ever seen; ranking on a par w/"Saving Private Ryan", "Platoon", "Letters from Iwo Jima", etc. It is April of 1945 and WW II in the European Theater is winding down. No one wants to die in the last few weeks of the war, but many do...and this is the great challenge facing tank commander, Don "Wardaddy" Collier and the crew of a Sherman Firefly, nicknamed "Fury". When the assistant driver is killed, he is replaced by Norman Ellison, a clerk w/out any tank training. The crew which has been together since North Africa w/Wardaddy in command, is not amused and is unsympathetic to Norman's nerves and fears. As the tank unit pushes into Germany, Norman receives a baptism of fire and the rest of the tank crew tries to survive a war that must end soon. Wardaddy, played superbly by Brad Pitt, in one of his best performances, is the epitome of the battle hardened war veteran and his crew would follow him literally into hell. The crew includes Boyd "Bible" Swan, played by a mature Shia LaBeouf, in his hands down best performance - my opinion. Bible's faith is treated compassionately by Hollywood standards..."Here's a Bible verse I think about sometimes. Many times. It goes: 'And I heard the voice of Lord saying: Whom shall I send and who will go for Us? And... I said: Here am I , send me!" Logan Lerman is Norman...I look for great things from this young actor. Jon Bernthal is Grady Travis, evidently of Cajun extraction; and Michael Pena is Trini "Gordo" Garcia. Don't be fooled by the Bible-quoting crew member...this is a gritty, violent and profane war film and if that bothers you, you might want to avoid this movie. Otherwise, in spite of the ever-present danger of death and injury, listen to the tank crew as Wardaddy begins the call and response..."Best job I ever had!"

I was super disturbed by how they portrayed the morality of the soldiers. There is nothing to be admired about it. Basically shows Brad Pitt's character working to erode the conscience of the new recruit. Very sad. I stopped watching when Brad Pitt told the new recruit to get in bed with a random German woman. If you are a Christian, don't consider watching this, in my opinion. You will wish you didn't.

What a goofy Movie, great 4K disk though.
Verified purchase
Let me start of by saying the 4K is very good. The audio fidelity is exceptional. This movie is kinda unique as a WWII movie as it actually shows tracers, something missing from most other ironically better movies. But the use of tracers on a HDR capable TV set with how the audio is mixed... DANG this movie is impressive at times.

This movie reminds me of another Genre fav, the pulp western: Tomb Stone. Tombstone has some PERFECT scenes, but the movie suffers from wonky editing and pacing choices to connect those classic moments.

Fury is 80% perfect with 20% WTF? I mean seriously. You will have an excellently constructed battle sequence bookended with a trash musical cue that is not mixed into the sound track well and a pseudo attempt at a montage... The film for me concludes with the Tiger tank battle cause the alamo last stand at the conclusion is just not executed in a similarly quality way. Dramatic tension doesn't exist because (thanks to what is pretty bad scene construction) you don't get a sense of stakes. You don't know where the bad guys are, one moment they have half a dozen panzerfausts, the next moment they got 1. One moment it's evening, the next its black in the middle of night... no the sun didn't set, the camera just cuts from a exterior shot of light to an exterior shot of dark... its that bad. There are some nicely written moments between characters here but the nuts and bolts of the sequence are so busted. There are also a few technical/camera lighting/contrast anomalies where they clearly didn't light a shot well enough and then superficially and lazily just pumped up the brightness to was out all the darks in the shot.

Yeah, this movie has some very peerless moments, and it will be a genre staple I think, but the lazy craftsmanship in some places really cripple this film and undermine how it really succeeds in the difficult places.
