This is not your standard issue war movie, the treatment is fresh and innovative and it’s a film shown from the point of view of a tank; well we are talking about David Ayer’s Fury that’s entertaining as well as engrossing.
The movie is allabout a tank called Fury, led by Don Wardaddy Collier (Brad Pitt) and his merry band of brothers. A young amateur typist (Logan Lerman) is assigned to the stonehearted soldiers to make a soldier out of him too and he will be your window to life in a war. He starts off as a soft, kind little kid with not a sliver of bloodlust in his heart but that isn’t going to last for long.
Fury and other tanks launch into the German territory and after a number of fights and battles, our hero tank is the one left, only to fight the ultimate battle; only this time the war is in 1945 Germany. Fury does a great job of introducing tanks as the weapons of mass destruction.
The climax of the movie will be counted as one of the best war scenes in recent times where just five men try to take out a whole army of Nazis.
The title Fury is meaningful in its own right. It revolves around the mental state of a human in the harshest of conditions. Technically, the film is terrific. Roman Vasyanov’s cinematography and Steven Price’s music adds to the gritty and bleak nature of the milieu.
Fury boasts of some brilliant action sequences and equally impressive acting by everybody involved, even by the perennially teary eyed Shia LaBeouf.
David Ayer has done a spectacular job with the action scenes, complete with green sinister Nazi bullets being fired at indestructible tanks and all the blood and gore you can or cannot imagine.
Surely, this film is recommended to all those who love to watch war movies and also to those to would want to make a start to watch them.
