"Fury not only shows you war up close and personal..you feel as if you are there!"
If you thought war films were just something to watch, think again! "Fury" not only shows viewers the violent side of war, they put you in the middle of the action!
Now, you're probably thinking how can they do that? Well, besides having an amazing screenplay written and directed by David Ayer, the cast is phenomenal.
Every actor raises the bar, pushing past the limitations of film as we know it. Let's Unhinge...
War Is A Dirty Game
Okay, so you may have heard a little about this film or maybe you haven't, but this is one movie you need to respect. "Fury" gets you so engaged and emotionally invested in the story, you can't help but feel the pain these brave warriors experience during the WWII.
The reason for this is due to the depth of each character. This isn't some half-baked script where you have one main lead and everyone else is on the sidelines for support. In Fury, each character adds another dimension to the total package. Take Labeouf's character, Bible for example, dude is fierce with a strong connection to his faith amidst a red river flowing with eternal explosions. It's literally mind-blowing and then to know that this is only a movie, can you imagine how it was for the real soldiers?
The real heroes of WWII and past wars that we make all these films about? If you see a veteran, you better give them a high 5 and a lit cigar..lol These guys have earned every ounce of respect they get and "Fury" is giving us a peak as to what they had to endure.
Nothing Left To Chance
So the story of course is set back in 1945 during the second world war when the Allies went into Nazi, Germany. Now as a disclaimer here, we are not historians, so we are not even going to try and pinpoint or dispute historical data..lol We're just going to focus on what the movie is about..just to make things clear =)
Okay, so the movie is about a lot of things, but mainly on the experiences of 5 brave men riding in a tank called Fury throughout Nazi, Gerymany. These guys go through some tough, rugged battle terrain and only have each other to depend on the when the shiet gets thick. And we're not talking thick like syrup, we're talking brimstone and Hell thick, the kind of thick where you could suffocate just inhaling the fumes. It's insane to think that anyone would be capable of even lasting for 5 minutes in such chaos, but these are soldiers.
Now without giving too much away, we will share a few of the characters that you will encounter while watching this monumental film.
Brad Pitt stars as the Big Chief shot-caller in the tank and his character's name is aptly titled Wardaddy. Wardaddy is a man whose seen it all and realizes that bloodshed is a vital component of even beginning to squelch the fires of war. He's come to grips with his mission and believes in the struggle. He knows that it will take everything he has to complete the objective.
Also riding in the tank, we have Logan Lerman, playing the role of Norman, a young naive private who is thrust into the belly of the beast. This guy doesn't have the skills nor insight of his Fury co-riders and it's going to take all he has just to stay alive! Can you imagine, being pulled from your comfy desk job and thrust into a machine built to kill Nazis?
That would almost be like playing in little league baseball and then being drafted to the NBA..lol No way could you even come close to surviving a game on your own, it would take the strength of every man on the team to make you stronger. You would need to be pushed beyond your reality to even last one game. This is Norman's struggle and it's one you just have to see!
And there are plenty of others, all equally captivating, but we don't want to spoil the experience for you. We want you to be blown out of your shoes just as we were watching this amazing film for the first time. We literally felt the weight of their burden on our chests as the film progressed, it's about as heavy as it gets. This movie pulls you in...all the way!
You Need To See This
As if you needed anymore of an explanation on why this movie is next level..lol "Fury" is light-years ahead of it's competition, in fact, there isn't any competition as far as "Fury" is concerned. This movie is in a class of it's own, a diamond in the rough, a pure gem in the eyes of it's beholder. Enjoy...
