"Fury" - Sorry as a Vet I just couldn't get past the opening premise. You've a combat tank crew that have somehow managed to survive in inferior American Armor from Kasserine Pass to western Germany and they're going to put their lives in the hands of a clerk typist? Unbelievable I just can't buy the premise. They got away with it in SPR because the guy had a particular skill needed to finish the mission... translator I believe. This kid brings nothing, knows nothing... has nothing.

They're standing in the Repl Depot surrounded by infantry SOMEONE has to be a .30 cal gunner!!!! But no we have to have the tired tale of callow youth turned into "first class fightin' man" through beatings, brutality, sex and murder. This is not Bastogne (The Battle of the Bulge) where EVERYONE became a rifleman. The acting is first rate, Pitt is steady and believable as the battle scarred veteran of the tank wars in Europe. I particularly liked breakfast scene with the two women.

If I didn't know soldiers... if I hadn't been one, I might have enjoyed this film better, but as it is they lost me at the start.
