FURY (2014) – My rating: 9.5/10

FuryWhen I rate a movie 10 or close to a ten, it means I found nothing wrong with the movie.  The acting, the plot, the ending, special effects, substance and the message are taken into consideration.  I take off 1/2 to 1 whole point for each of the above categories I feel the director didn’t get right.  Fury is a near perfect movie.  I took off a half point because I felt the ending could have gone a tiny bit further.  Fury tells a story that is so profound it had me in tears.  Imagine a young christian boy thrown in the middle of WW2.  Of course he has never killed anyone but now he being told to kill as many Nazi’s as he can, without batting an eye.  This kid has to learn to be a killing machine in a matter of minutes.  To survive, he has to comply with his leader’s commands, despite his feelings.  On the other side of the coin, without the guidance and hand holding of the leader, they could all be dead in seconds.  Any hesitation on the part of the kid could end it all.  Norman Ellison played by Logan Lerman is so green on so many levels that he’s no use to the troops, but in the end, he emerges as a hero.  Fury tells it like it is when we had christian values — many of the soldiers survived believing those values.  Brad Pitt (Don “Wardaddy” ) plays as an Army Sergeant who commands a Sherman tank filled with 5 soldiers and does a fine job of leading them to the finish line.  Fury is a very good movie that sends a very good message under the direction of David Ayer.  You can’t go wrong with this movie, you’ll get your money’s worth!
