Fury (2014, rated R) was directed by David Ayer, starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, and Jon Bernthal.  The film is set in Germany on April, 1945 during World War II, following a five-man crew of soldiers from the United States as they set out on a risky mission in an American tank.  This action packed movie is gory and extremely intense.  Personally, I enjoyed it very much as it’s camera movement and visual effects also impressed me.  Even though Fury has extensive amounts of profanity, violence, anger, hate, and multiple sexual references, it is simply acknowledging what war is really like.  Many of the scenes display blood, gore, bullets, etc. that many people may find disturbing, but it is what soldiers actually put up with and experience.

One particular scene captured the intensity of tanks marvelously.  A Nazi tank was firing heavy ammunition at the Americans, and the effects used were amazing; sound played a big role, as the tank round came whizzing past the camera, causing a soldier to literally explode.



Not only does Fury focus on war, it also presents a theme of the loss of innocence that young men are put up to.  The five-man crew includes one young private drafted to the war.  With no experience, he is thrown into the deep end as the audience follows his dramatic change that eventually leads to him shooting down groups of Nazi men with machine guns.
