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.

An impressively solid World War II movie of the kind they don't make anymore.

Associated Press

It's an "unflinching" account of war -- "unflinching," in quotes, because every moment of the film is composed to grind your face into the muck and be proud of itself for doing so.

Film Inquiry

Fury, the true feel-bad film of the year packs a whole lot of style but, as seems to be David Ayer's M.O., it lacks substance.

While these orgies of violence are staged with tense, gruesome precision, they don't convey much beyond what we already know. Namely, that war is hell. Message received.

Pitt is at the top of his game, playing a man who has forgotten whatever he used to be and has wholly embraced his role in this war.

Padraic McKiernan
Sunday Independent (Ireland)

[Pitt] delivers an Oscar-worthy performance in the central role and while attempts to mix the populist and the profound don't always work, it remains a captivating piece.

TIME Magazine

Pitt, who at 50 still looks great with his shirt off, has the gruff charisma to play a dauntless soldier with killer courage and a vestigial streak of humanity.

Led by Pitt, who sublimates his persona so deeply into Wardaddy that you can forget about his movie star baggage, the cast is exceptional.

Sonny Bunch
Washington Free Beacon

Fury is a well crafted, incredibly taut war film, one that sets aside the Great Man Theory of war and instead focuses on war-fighting men.

As far as the look and atmosphere go, this WW2 action drama feels almost like a Saving Private Ryan spin-off. The action sequences are impressive, especially… More
