It has been reported that Shia LaBeouf became a Christian while shooting this movie. His actual words were, "I found God during 'Fury'. I became a Christian man, and not in a fucking bullshit way--in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page, but . . . it's a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control." He said that talking with Brad Pitt, who grew up in a conservative Christian home but rejected Christianity, and with David Ayer, the Christian director of the film, helped crystallize his thinking.

Brad Pitt's and Jon Bernthal's haircuts are the typical "Landsertolle" of the German infantry. However, many troops who spent a lot of time in combat or on the front lines went weeks without shaving or getting their hair cut, and the army didn't get too particular about it. See more »
When one watches this movie you need to keep in mind that not all war movies are the same and the focus of the movie depends on who made the movie, how it was made and who is watching it? Make sense...of course not but in a nutshell keep an open mind. Is it about war? Yes some of it is. It is about bonding and camaraderie? Yes of course, it highlights strained relationships in very stressful and violent situations. I enjoyed the movie and being ex military in the 3rd Armour Division you do tend to pick things out BUT I could do that in just about any military movie I have seen especially from WWII to date. Without being too specific I spotted armor and infantry tactical strategies which confused me a bit but other than that I did enjoy this movie. War is ugly and this movie does not miss that point.
