Brad Pitt has headed back to WWII combat duty, this time with with director David Ayer and co-stars Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena and Jason Isaacs. Fury offers a straight up story with handsome production values, but if the trailer is any indication, not much else. Ayer is most known for his morally ambiguous big-city cop dramas such as Harsh Times and End of Watch (he also wrote Training Day and Dark Blue) all of which I have found easy to skip, I don’t think I ever seen an Ayer film directed by Ayer; maybe it will be this one.
As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant 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, the men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
