Director: David Ayer
Year Released: 2014
A cavalier commander (Brad Pitt) fights with his loyal crew (including Shia LaBeouf, Michael Peña and John Bernthal) aboard the battle-tested tank "Fury" during World War II, and then some callow youngster named Norman (Logan Lerman) comes along being all liberal (... and "millennial," even in 1945!) leaving the crew to slap him around and teach him how to kill Nat-sees. Straight-forward - and kind of lumbering - it bathes itself in bloodshed and horrors without offering much extra about the conflict except 'war is hell' - the kid, in a manner of time, loses his virginity (in which some might consider a rape sequence inside a German home), shoots an SS officer and sees his tank-buddies die in one final, macho suicide mission to take on some 400 enemy combatants. The tone throughout is despair: all it offers is carnage and casualties without the shading of the more textured films in the same genre.
