Fury: War Is Hell

In 1945, Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) leads his tank crew behind enemy lines in Nazi Germany. The battle-hardened four-man unit, joined by a young soldier trained as an army typist, know they're outnumbered. Facing death, they're determined to take out as many Nazis before the enevitable occurs.

Fury is a raw war movie, but despite some less-than-subtle opening scenes depicting Wardaddy as a consummate killer, who clings to what little humanity remains, the movie moves on to tell a devastating, believable story.

It's a story about the intense relationships between men thrown together during the heat of battle, who have only each other. It's also a movie that reminds us of the insanity of war.

When will we ever learn?
