Amazing movie! Loved it so much I watched it 3 times before returning. Great performances by all actors involved, probably my favorite WW2 movie now!

I grew up with many family members that served in WWI, WW II and Korean war. None of them ever used such fowl language. In fact the F word was never heard. This was a detraction throughout the entire movie and worked in an opposing direction from a true WWII real life film. Unlike Private Ryan which omitted much of this chatter, this move also had quite a bit of drags and lulls to pull further away from a 5 star rating. Still its worth seeing but there are far better films to re-enact WWII than this DVD.

This was like having a personal experience of what our military has to experience. It made me appreciate them even more. It literally had me in tears.

This is a tense and gritty movie about an American Sherman tank crew in the waning days of WW2. There have not been very many movies about tank combat since Humphrey Bogart's pretty good Sahara in 1943 but Fury maybe the top of the list. Brad Pitt is a harden no nonsense veteran who leads his tough talking crew with a fresh faced rookie from the clerical pool trying to fit into their tough company. The movie is candid in that combat is merciless and unforgiving to soldiers and innocent civilians also no quarter is given to certain SS enemy combatants. The vast superiority of German tanks over Allied is clearly illustrated here and it would take losing 3 Shermans to defeat one Tiger tank. The only slightly unrealistic moment happens in the ending firefight where the elite German SS units can't hit the side of a barn.

How war can brutalize even the most mild-mannered of innocents.
Nobility and savagery in one package. Hard hitting.

Norman Ellison: I've never even seen the inside of a tank. I'm a clerk typist. Was heading to Fifth Corps HQ, and they pulled me off the truck. They sent me here. It's gotta be a mistake.
Grady 'Coon-Ass' Travis: Mistake? Army don't make mistakes. It wouldn't do.

From IMDb:

Boyd 'Bible' Swan: Here's a Bible verse I think about sometimes. Manytimes. It goes: And I heard the voice of Lord saying: Whom shall I send and who will go for Us? And... I said: Here am I , send me!
Norman Ellison: [Mumbling] Send me.
Wardaddy: Book of Isaiah, Chapter six.

Wardaddy: Hey, you want to talk Mexican? Join another tank, a Mexican tank. This is an American tank, we talk American.

Irma: Where are you going?
Wardaddy: To take the next town. And the next one. Until you people quit.

Violence: Some pretty gory and brutal battle scenes, with scattered human body parts, and plenty of killings.
