In the opening scene when the Fury crew first gets the tank rolling, Wardaddy calls, "Bible, gun front." The camera then cuts to Bible with a "Roger," then to Coon-ass, then to Gordo, and comes to rest on five hanging Nazi medals. From left to right, they are: the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross, 25 Year Faithful Service Medal (civil service), Eastern Front Medal, War Merit Cross 2nd Class, and lastly, the Cross of Honor of the German Mother. This last award was only given to women who had more than 5 children (the highest division of this award was gold for having 8 or more children) born for Germany. The tank crew certainly never would have found this on a soldier, and more than likely would not have it proudly displayed if they had taken it off a civilian woman. See more »
I can gladly say that David Ayer's World War II flick 'Fury' lived up to my expectations. The audience are confronted with the horrors of war, accompanied with some truly spectacular well-crafted battle scenes that proves Ayer's desire to create something new and profound. Ayer keeps the gritty realism he employed on his other acclaimed films only this time uses it to depict the journey of a tank crew in Germany in 1945. The performances are strong from Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman and even Shia LaBeouf has proved he has a hidden acting talent after his heyday on the set of 'Transformers'. An emotional war-drama that packs a punch with visceral action scenes and an atmospheric score, definitely worth a watch.
