Button up, you lot, it’s time for “Fury!”

David Ayer’s “Fury” is a gritty, mud-caked drama set in Nazi Germany near the end of WWII. “War is hell,” the resonating theme of the film, loss, and the do-or-die front line attitude are the bedrock on which the motley crew of Fury stands. Newcomer, Norman, represents the normal, uninitiated, everyman whose transformation symbolizes what the civilian viewer will ultimately go through. Our boys in the belly are a notable acting bunch lead by Brad Pitt who, to kick this flick off, goes full Superman to deck some Nazi CO off his pony. Game on.
