The film's message is resonant far beyond the moment of its creation, speaking even to our modern-day political reality.

Unforgettable attack on lynch mobs - extraordinary drama

Classic Film and Television

Probing mass psychology and mob violence in a small-town, Lang's first American film, starring Spencer Tracy, expresses his pessimistic view of human nature that defines all of his American ones.

Fury offers a striking portrait of the structure of society; its assorted classes, organizations and technologies, and methods of law and order...

Lang's first English language film seemed to anticipate the horrors at Abu Ghraib as far back as 1936.

While marred by a pat ending, Fritz Lang's examination of lynch mobs is still terrifying.

As powerful and fresh as when it was made

Fritz Lang's first American film since leaving Nazi Germany is an eye-opener about a lynch mob in a small town.

Audience Reviews for Fury

Fritz Lang's first American film after fleeing Nazi Germany and the oppression of Adolph Hitler. A predecessor to the classic film noir of the 1940s and 50s, Fury has a wealth of elements which would later define the noir style. Outstanding performances from Spencer Tracy and Sylvia Sidney help cement this 'wrong man' courtroom drama as a true timeless classic.

I loved this movie, Tracy is an innocent man fighting for his life, and everyone wants to kill him! It's so exciting and suspenseful. A must see.

it's still a powerful film about mob mentality and perhaps more about anarchism than lynching since it ignores the obvious racial issue. otherwise it seems a pretty glaring omission since at least 80% of lynching victims were black. i have to believe the studio wouldn't allow it to be referenced for commercial reasons. the film can also be read as anti-democracy given that the original title was mob rule. thx v :) mgm invades warner territory of socially conscious films. great performance by spencer tracy as everyman.

[font=Century Gothic]In "Fury," Joe Wilson(Spencer Tracy) and Katherine Grant(Sylvia Sidney) are madly in love and want to get married but times are tough and she has to take a job teaching in another city. Joe vows to come get her once he has saved up enough money. He invests in a gas station which thrives by its close location to a new racetrack, saving up for a car in the bargain.(He works there with his two brothers(Frank Albertson & George Wolcott) who he persuaded to have nothing to do with a local racketeer.) On the way to collect his fiancee, Joe is stopped by the police and held on suspicion in a local kidnapping case. But the public hears something else and rumors spread...[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"Fury" is directed by Fritz Lang who left Germany one step ahead of the Nazis. The movie is a powerful cautionary tale about lynching that still resonates today. It should be mentioned that Lang could not mention race but then he did not have to.[/font]
