Fury tells the story of a U.S. Sherman tank crew as they battle through Nazi Germany on the way to Berlin. Brad Pitt takes on the role of uncompromising tank commander Don ‘Wardaddy' Collier.
The battle scenes in Fury are gripping and intense, similar in style to those in Saving Private Ryan. However, the cramped setting of the tank adds an extra element of tension to the proceedings. The film takes on the historical limitations of the U.S. Sherman tank when faced with its main rival – the heavily armored Königstiger (King Tiger). A Sherman’s shell would simply bounce harmlessly off it. The film does a good job of capturing the problems faced by U.S. tank crews during the war.
Tank movies are pretty thin on the ground, so Fury is a welcome addition to the genre. Although it never breaks any new ground and the dialogue can be clunky at times. Having said that, at its core, it's still and very good war movie in the traditional sense. if you liked Saving Private Ryan, Band Of Brothers and Hacksaw Ridge you won't be disappointed by Fury.
Update: Fury is no longer available on Netflix but you can still watch it if you have an Amazon Prime membership.
