GLProUK’s Tony Gordon (How To Write A Tune, Bones Knows) and Jay Ludgrove (The Jaily Show) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Tony’s choice Fury.
Fury is a 2014 war drama written and directed by David Ayer it stars Brad Pitt as Don “War Daddy” Collier, Shia LaBoeuf as Boyd “Bible” Swan, Logan Lerman as Norman “Machine” Ellison, Michael Peña
as Trini “Gordo” Garcia and Jon Bernthal as Grady “Coon-Ass” Travis. Set in 1945, the Western Allied invasion of Germany meets fanatical Schutzstaffel resistance – War Daddy and his crew are leading the defence in their tank, affectionately named ‘Fury’.
While the storyline is fictional, Fury and War Daddy are authentic – American tank commander Staff Sergeant Lafayette G. “War Daddy” Pool’s experience influenced Pitt’s War Daddy and was filmed in the UK due to the availability of functional Sherman tanks to be borrowed. Heavy on machismo and violence Fury doesn’t shy away from the realities of war and the Second World War specifically (dead horses being eaten).
Fury opens with Brad Pitt stabbing a German in the eye – if that is your thing then you’ll probably enjoy Fury – if it’s not then maybe give this one a miss. The scores for Fury reflect this and it scores a very respectable 3.98 overall.
