Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Fury" is literally visceral-a kind of war horror film, which is, of course, what good combat films should be."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Fury is irrefutably crafted. Over two hours long it is tense going, a sturdily acted affair. And yet.... As the author of this drama, Ayer has penned a work that takes us no place new or illuminating."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"The actors aren't given much room to explore their characters. But what we do get is lots of authentic-looking and thrillingly staged battle scenes."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"Familiar and overly grim but overall decent war flick."
‑ Boo Allen, Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
"David Ayer's film succeeds in creating a claustrophobic mood, prising us into the Sherman tank in 1945 Germany with its melting pot of tension and mix of personalities"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"This is an intense movie, with taut, expertly depicted tank battles and a believable sense of camaraderie among the characters."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A fatalism unites all of Ayer's movies, even his best film, End of Watch... This is the first of his movies in which that fatalism culminates in a state of grace I've never experienced in a war film before."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Loud, intense, violent, relentless, Fury doesn't stop until the credits roll, thanks to Ayer's cracking direction and a committed cast. The best WW2 movie in some time."
‑ James Mottram, Total Film
"A reminder that World War II was a hellhole, no matter how great the Andrew Sisters were."
‑ Alonso Duralde, Linoleum Knife
"Built like a tank, a carefully constructed WWII film that slowly rumbles toward greatness while not quite getting there."
‑ Brad Keefe, Columbus Alive
"In a sense, it succeeds too well in conjuring its own subject matter: heavy, mechanical, claustrophobic, and unrelenting."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Fury is a big step up in sophistication. Where it elevates itself from being merely a believably grimy, well-acted war drama is in its long and surprising middle act."
‑ Chris Klimek, NPR
"It's War! Only two scenes appear hopeful, but very strong performances"
‑ Diana Saenger, ReviewExpress.com
"The film's impact is partly explained by the heavy artillery aimed at our sensibilities, not just our eardrums, and the almost careless narrative, which only glues together in the final, extended, extraordinary sequence"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"With its 'Greatest Generation' context, 'Fury' offers a way for Ayer to legitimize his signature carnage and to reach audiences unsympathetic to stories of drug dealers and other urban perps, but the effort feels somewhat presumptuous..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
