Brother Glacius Posted October 16, 2014 Report Share Posted October 16, 2014 Wow, Fury is one of those movies that is really hard to describe. It was brutal and raw. The first word that popped out of my mouth at the end of it was "intense". The problem I have with it though is that I wasn't sure how to answer my wife when she asked me if I had liked it. I was interested in it, I was enthralled while I watched it, and it definitely had me on the edge of my seat. But at the same time, there was little in the way of emotional response. I got more emotional reading the interview of an actual WWII infantryman on Warlord's site. I suppose my reaction to the film is mature. This was not a film that glorified combat, nor was it some propaganda piece. In fact, most of the time, I felt ashamed of how some of the soldiers were acting. But it always came with the grim realization that it was probably very accurate. There were no heroes to root for. I don't know if I'll own this film. I'm simply not sure of the point of it. It was watching the horrible truth of war and now that I have seen it, do I really need to see it again? As a movie, it was amazing. It completely drew me in. The acting was good and the effects were phenomenal. The pacing was good. My only criticism would be the validity of the final battle. But it is a movie, so they have leeway. It left me shell-shocked. I don't think I am still quite over the experience. If you like World War II films, then I have to recommend it. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
