After giving us a dud with Sabotage, Ayer is back in full End of Watch glory with Fury. Fury is a unique perspective on WWII combat coming from an intimate look at an American tank crew led by Brad Pitt as Don ‘Wardaddy’ Collier. What Fury has is both action (lots of explosions!) and a solid story with strong character development, making it a war film that will stick around for some time.
Because gun and tank fire is so crucial in telling this story Ayer decided to give the bullets and rockets a laser graphic accompaniment (think Star Wars blasters). During the first battle it with throw you off guard because of how realistic the rest of the film is, but you will quickly get use to the laser effect and appreciate the ability to distinguish friendly fire from enemy fire.
The acting is great from the entire cast, the production design is terrific, and the action is badass. I don’t think there’s really anything bad to say about this movie except a somewhat absurd ending (not climax but ending) and that Brad Pitt’s character decides he cares more about killing SS members than anything else.
