April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened Army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and his five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered, out-gunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.Written by

When the film shows American Infantry walking, they are pictured way too close together. In reality, infantry are taught to walk 5 meters apart and staggered so that if they are targeted there is no clump of bodies to be shredded by machine gun fire or explosives. When crossing open areas they would be walking in a very wide wedge formation, not clumped up close together. See more »
Set in April 1945, but the vegetation is too advanced for April. When Norman is sent out to scout at the crossroads, he crouches among English ivy, which is in flower next to his head. English ivy doesn't flower until late summer or fall. See more »

Emotional, Visceral, Gritty
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.
