Fury opens a window into life inside a battle tank that I guess has never been done before. Kudos to the makers for capturing this so well. However, overall the movie fell below my expectations. Lots of scenes drag on meaninglessly and the screening could've well been shortened by at least by 150 mins. Pitt, LeBeouf and Lerman stand out. Worth a watch.
The Second World War was a world-shaping clash - massive, ideological, with loyalties at least superficially defined. It was the kind of war that would have left all of humanity vastly different today had it not occurred. It was also, hopefully, the last of its kind.
Fury, however, cares for none of this. Fury zooms in, and takes us deep into the death throes of World War II in Germany, as the Nazi army fights with all of its might despite it being obvious that the army will lose; obsessively taking down every American soldier it can even as it goes down spectacularly.
