This movie has fast become one of my favorite war movies. I am by no means a Brad Pitt fan, and I have to admit that I nearly did not watch this simply because of that fact, but I took the advice of a good friend who knows my cinematic tastes. I can never thank him enough.
This is one of the rare movies that gives us a look at the grittier side of war not often depicted on screen. We are treated to a view of how war can affect the psyche of good men, bringing forth behaviors that might never have existed if not exposed to the atrocities of war. In far too many movies the Armor component is always shown in a supporting role and never gives us a look at what the men inside this small steel coffin on wheels (so to speak) have to go through. These tanks are not only their weapons, but their homes. The enforced closeness of their environment forces them to learn to live together, forging a familial bond.
Would I recommend this to someone interested in WWII? Without a doubt. Perhaps my favorite part of the movie was the intensity of the tank on tank battles, the tactics employed and the edge of your seat thrill that goes through you when you realize not everyone will survive.

The 'Making of' documentary interviews several 90 something year old veterans who were in the armored division. Found it interesting how one of them mentioned that no one gave a thought back then to the First World War. He thought it strange that there is now such a fascination with the Second.
The tracer rounds in this film make many of the battle scenes appear like a Star Wars conflict. And most of the explosions quite resemble what occurs every fourth of July. Fury well portrays how years of war can make animals out of people. These jaded men are daily struggling to find some remaining sense of normalcy and morality. It's hard to imagine how in this diminished state of mind men like these would later encounter the atrocities of the camps.

In April 1945, the Allies are making their final push in the European theater. A battle-hardened Army sergeant named Don 'Wardaddy' Collier (Brad Pitt), leading a Sherman tank and a five-man crew, undertakes a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Hopelessly outnumbered, outgunned and saddled with an inexperienced soldier (Logan Lerman) in their midst, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds as they move to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
