Fury: Movie Review

By Ashish Bikram Lamichane

Photo Courtesy: Exam Exam Exam! Just hearing this name makes me exhausted. It is the time when we can’t do anything fun, even if we want to. "Exam", the name itself is sufficient for me to stay away from fun. The only thing I can do during exam is sit in a chair, take out my books and study. I had a very bad day recently where I had to walk for an hour to reach the exam center because of Nepal Banda. This was worse than any other exam days. When I returned home after giving an exam, I was very tired. I could not start preparing for the other exam, so I watched a movie that night. My friend had given me a movie named “Fury”. I never had time to watch it. So I decided to watch it that day. The movie begins with U.S army Sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commanding a tank named “Fury” and its crew gunner Boyd "Bible" Swan (Shia LaBeouf), loader Grady "Coon-Ass" Travis (Jon Bernthal), and driver Trini "Gordo" Garcia (Michael Pena), returning to their base. As their assistant driver gets killed in the battle, Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman) is sent as replacement of the assistant driver. Norman is a recently enlisted typist who had never experienced the ravages of war. They are then immediately with 4 other tanks in a deadly mission behind enemy lines. On the way, one of their tanks gets destroyed as Norman becomes unable to shoot Nazi soldier, as it was the first time he was trying to kill someone. Later, when U.S army, finds one of the Nazi soldier Wardadddy, makes Norman to kill that soldier. As they continue their mission, they encounter a more advanced Nazi tank, which destroys the remaining 3 tanks. But Wardadddy crew manages to destroy that tank. They were the only left people to continue that mission. The rest of the story is about their heroic attempts to attack the heart of Nazi despite being Out-gunned and outnumbered. If you want to know whether they succeed or not, you have to watch this movie yourselves. But to be honest, it is one of the best war movie, I have ever watched. This movie shows that there are many kind-hearted people participating in the war against their will. This movie taught me the war might change the thought of people about killing other people. They will kill the enemies even if they do not want to kill them.
