Brad Pitt, like so many other men approaching 50, seems to be really getting into World War II. A few years back, he starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, and now he’s taking the lead in the less-ensembly Fury.
Fury is written and directed by David Ayer, who has experience with similar heavy fare like Training Day, End of Watch, and Harsh Times so this should fall in his wheelhouse, save for the fact that there are no cops.
Nonetheless, Brad Pitt normally has a good eye for projects, and this has all the trappings of a pretty strong film. Take a look at how the greatest generation lived.
