An impressively solid World War II movie of the kind they don't make anymore.
January 5, 2015
While these orgies of violence are staged with tense, gruesome precision, they don't convey much beyond what we already know. Namely, that war is hell. Message received.
January 5, 2015
Pitt, who at 50 still looks great with his shirt off, has the gruff charisma to play a dauntless soldier with killer courage and a vestigial streak of humanity.
January 5, 2015
It's an "unflinching" account of war -- "unflinching," in quotes, because every moment of the film is composed to grind your face into the muck and be proud of itself for doing so.
January 5, 2015
Pitt is at the top of his game, playing a man who has forgotten whatever he used to be and has wholly embraced his role in this war.
January 5, 2015
Led by Pitt, who sublimates his persona so deeply into Wardaddy that you can forget about his movie star baggage, the cast is exceptional.

Those of us expecting the intelligent character development of Band of Brothers, The Pacific and even Saving Private Ryan will find this to be little more than a display of five archetypes in a tin can.
October 22, 2014
Little of the dramatic material is convincing, in part because Pitt retains a kind of preening inwardness far removed from the matter-of-fact authority associated with, say, Lee Marvin.
October 20, 2014
"Fury" is literally visceral-a kind of war horror film, which is, of course, what good combat films should be.
October 20, 2014
No doubt writer-director David Ayer went to painstaking lengths in re-creating details of the period: But his ambitious efforts will just leave audiences feeling battle-fatigued.

This is an intense movie, with taut, expertly depicted tank battles and a believable sense of camaraderie among the characters.
October 17, 2014
In a sense, it succeeds too well in conjuring its own subject matter: heavy, mechanical, claustrophobic, and unrelenting.
October 17, 2014
Fury is irrefutably crafted. Over two hours long it is tense going, a sturdily acted affair. And yet.... As the author of this drama, Ayer has penned a work that takes us no place new or illuminating.
October 17, 2014
A fatalism unites all of Ayer's movies, even his best film, End of Watch... This is the first of his movies in which that fatalism culminates in a state of grace I've never experienced in a war film before.
Top Critic
October 17, 2014
Fury is a big step up in sophistication. Where it elevates itself from being merely a believably grimy, well-acted war drama is in its long and surprising middle act.
October 17, 2014
Fury is a war movie with balls of steel and marbles for brains.
October 17, 2014
[An] extraordinarily intense and focussed film ...
October 17, 2014
The end result, while technically impressive, is a dramatically bloodless affair, despite the gallons of gore on display.
October 17, 2014
Though much of Fury crumbles in the mind, the power of its best moments lingers ...
October 17, 2014
"Fury" is a brutal film that too easily celebrates rage and bloodshed to no clear end beyond ugly spectacle.
