15 classification Fury


Ents24 Rating


Genre: War / Action / Drama
Director: David Ayer
Running time: 134 mins

A gritty war drama that aims to show the more brutal, less noble side of the Allied Forces as they trudged across Europe in the final struggles of WWII. Director David Ayer has personal experience of war as he was a sonar operator on an attack submarine in the 1980s and his grandfather and uncle both served in the military, and he brings some realism to this well-worn genre. Brad Pitt stars as hardened sergeant Don 'Wardaddy' Collier, who is determined to get his squad through the conflict alive. Having fought their way across Africa, to Normandy, across the Rhine and into Germany, they are weary and traumatised but must go behind enemy lines for one final push with their tank, nicknamed Fury.
