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

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.
