Fury is one of those films that added something to the WWII genre. We've probably seen a hundred war movies since the 80s and 90s, and they are mostly the same. The real way to make an original war movie is in making great characters or straight up reimagining history aka Inglorious Basterds. Fury did things a little differently by taking an obvious piece of the war and honing in on it despite the danger of it getting a little boring. You don't necessarily think of tank battles as the most fast paced and intense, but they made sure through the cinematography and acting that kept you on the edge of your seat.
Tanks were shown as homes to the crews that kept them running, with the crews becoming a brotherhood. The movie really portrayed Brad Pitt and co. as isolated from the rest of the world, not really focusing on any other facets of the war or supporting characters of any kind. The only use other characters had was to either be killed and/or to drive home the brutality of war and utter hatred the tank crew had for the Nazis. The movie really lived up to its name; as you progress through the movie, you clearly see how much they really I mean really hate Nazis.
The problem with the movie was the isolation of the tank crew. You really grow close to these characters (yes, even Shia Labeouf) and understand how disposable these soldiers are. Tanks are absolutely deadly machines, and they are not glamorized in any way whatsoever. These things are what makes the movie worth watching, but overall it felt like it was missing something. It felt like someone wanted to create a movie about something people don't know much about and that's about it. There's no real plot, you just kind of move through the war with these characters with no idea where it's going to end. They have no end goal other than to kill Nazi scum.
Fury is a good movie, and definitely worth seeing. Just don't expect more than what's on the surface or the movie posters. It's a movie about guys driving a tank during WWII killing Nazis, and that's what you get. You'll get emotion, you'll get cool action, and you'll get Brad Pitt. What more could you ask for?
