Movie Mayhem – Fury

As long as there have been movies, there have been movies on or about war. More to the point, there have been commentaries on the bravery of the men and women who fight for the ideals they have sworn to protect and how the perils of war affects the state of mind of dedicated soldiers. The best war movies don’t revel in or glorify the physical actions of war, nor do they dwell heavily on the mental or physical ramifications of those acts so as to become overly melodramatic. They take care to balance both aspects to understand the mentality of people who choose (or are elected) to participate in such intense, and in some cases unthinkable, situations. That exploration plays a major part in Fury, the new World War II drama that does a terrific job presenting this mindset, even though it can’t seem to find a strong narrative footing to represent its characters.
