Excerpt: E cos’è davvero questo Fury? Una premonizione della nuova ondata conservatrice, che sta travolgendo l’America negli ultimi anni della presidenza Obama? La rivendicazione del ruolo degli Stati Uniti in uno scenario geopolitico, dilaniato da conflitti sempre più sanguinosi e incerti? O più semplicemente un film di guerra di straordinaria potenza ed orrore, che unisce il realismo claustrofobico della messa in scena, allo spirito eroico dei suoi protagonisti?
Excerpt: Hollywood regresa a los horrores del hombre contra el hombre con una película que arranca poderosa y contundentemente y luego se diluye hasta convertirse en una propuesta bélica más. No está mal, pero parecía otra cosa, ciertamente.
Excerpt: Brad Pitt leads the haggard quartet of soldiers inside the tank dubbed Fury as Sgt. Don Collier, a frustrated commander accustomed to a tight knit camaraderie that is threatened by a green typist thrust onto the battle lines after the death of the team’s co-pilot. Struggling to adjust to the new assignment, Pvt. Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman) learns quickly and harshly the truth about the blood, death and destruction brought about by war.
Excerpt: While some of the characterizations and stylistic choices here can feel out of place, the logistics of tank battle – and the gory reality of warfare – are perfectly rendered. Fury is a must for war movie veterans.
Excerpt: Writer and director David Ayer avoids the humorous camaraderie of more traditional World War II movie, instead lending real edge to the gallows humor amongst the troops and heaping doses of gore and brutality to the combat sequences. Fury is not for the weak of heart, nor for those looking for cheerleading or glorification of war
Excerpt: To quote a line in the classic From Here to Eternity, “If it’s killin ya want, it’s killin’ ya’ll get,” especially in the movie’s over-the-top final scene of against-all-odds heroism and slaughter.
Excerpt: Writer/director David Ayer’s World War II drama is a gritty European-style coming-of-age picture that reminds us how much war has changed in the past 65 years yet how much it remains the same.
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: Its traditional storytelling represents an agreeable throwback to a time when tales of combat managed to be viscerally exciting while also saying something about camaraderie and the effect of the battlefield experience on ordinary soldiers.
David William Upton @ So So Gay
Excerpt: Even in its better moments, Fury feels almost pointless; there are no observations in Ayer’s script that haven’t been made before, and that haven’t been captured by craftier, more passionate filmmaking.
