Fury (2014)

“Ideals are peaceful, history is violent,” bellows Wardaddy (Brad Pitt), the tank sergeant charged with keeping his buddies alive in a Tiger 131 as hostilities draw to their awful conclusion in Germany, 1945. In David Ayer’s film there is endless mud, grey skies, nasty Nazis, horrific killing and a rookie typist who gains his stripes in more ways than one as their numbers are depleted. Tough, dirty, vulnerable and filled with cliched heroics and admirable acts, this is one helluva film. Best job I ever had.Fury poster
