The Brad Pitt starring David Ayer directed World War 2 tank movie looks like it actually has a story.
The whole “new guy in the platoon replacing a highly competent/well liked guy right before a big mission” thing certainly isn’t a new plot device but it is an easy and good way to get an audience insert character into a story. So while both that and “out-manned and outgunned behind enemy lines” isn’t terribly original this looks like it’s gonna be basically 100% amazing performances. Yes, even from Shia LaBeouf. That guy can act.
There are a few things that are a little weird in this, the tracer round being green kinda look like lasers from Star Wars but that’s pretty nitpicky.
All in all Fury looks great. It’s out 17th October and I, for one, am officially excited.
April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
