Though much of Fury crumbles in the mind, the power of its best moments lingers …

“Fury” is a brutal film that too easily celebrates rage and bloodshed to no clear end beyond ugly spectacle.

Fury presents an unrelentingly violent, visceral depiction of war, which is perhaps as it should be.

I couldn’t help suspecting that there’s a pornographic leer to it all, a savage glee.

Attention to details give Fury heft and value, as does solid acting, but Ayer seems to lose his resolve in two scenes that are straight out of a Sgt. Fury Marvel Comics episode, or maybe a Hollywood script rewrite.

Fury cannot quite rise to the level of the modern war films it aspires to, but in its own way it is a worthy addition to the genre.

Rather than using his small, focused story to heavily underline themes about the horrors of war, Ayer simply follows characters and moments, letting viewers draw their own conclusions.

Not the Dirty Dozen, The Greasy Five. LaBeouf is excellent to boot.

“Fury” is a well-made, finely-acted movie that suffers only from being not particularly insightful or original.

Tanks may drive slow, but the action in Fury comes fast and furious.

War is an ulcer-inducing gore porno in ‘Fury,’ whose slice-of-life appeal is somewhat at odds with its more sensationalist elements.

[An] extraordinarily intense and focussed film …

The end result, while technically impressive, is a dramatically bloodless affair, despite the gallons of gore on display.

A more disturbing picture than what we usually associate with The Greatest Generation

Pitt, in peak form, leads a tank crew through war and domesticity

“Fury” is an astonishingly detailed production about the realities of war.

“Fury” is a thrilling and captivating project. Just when you think you’ve seen every possible staging of World War II, along comes a truly exceptional interpretation.

Terrific acting and action sequences offset the slow spots and keep this from tanking.

Ayer’s film does for tank warfare what Das Boot did for submarines and Saving Private Ryan did for D-Day.

The action scenes are nothing short of gripping. (Full Content Review for Parents also Available)

Fury was one good casting decision away from being an Oscar winner, but it still might be a contender.

The picture is long and talky, and its story circles the pit of old-school Hollywood corn before falling right in at the end.

Fury suggests U.S. soldiers can be just as savage as their enemies before remembering the Greatest Generation saved the world.
