Consensus: Overall, Fury is a well-acted, suitably raw depiction of the horrors of war that offers visceral battle scenes but doesn't quite live up to its larger ambitions.

"Fury" is literally visceral-a kind of war horror film, which is, of course, what good combat films should be.

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.

This is an intense movie, with taut, expertly depicted tank battles and a believable sense of camaraderie among the characters.

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.

In a sense, it succeeds too well in conjuring its own subject matter: heavy, mechanical, claustrophobic, and unrelenting.

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.

At its best, the movie works as a love letter to camaraderie-by-combat.

Wardaddy: It will end, soon. But before it does, a lot more people have to die. Fury is a well-acted, mediocre war drama that features Brad Pitt and company… More
