The military film in 4K is Fury 2014. It is April 1945, and the victory over the Germans is already close: the allies are confidently advancing deep into the enemy territory, and the resistance it gives becomes weaker day by day. This, however, does not mean at all that on the way to victory the allied forces will not lose many more people, and many soldiers realize that death is waiting at arm’s length. Among the hardened pessimists in battle, every day leading fierce battles in the name of victory, the crew of the tank, on whose muzzle the word “Rage” is painted.
The commander of the crew, known as Wardaddy, who fought with the Nazi troops first in Africa, and then in Europe, pursues one goal – to survive in the war and save lives for his people. This relatively ambitious plan is under threat when a green rookie Norman Ellison joins his crew, who has never fought before and has not yet got used to the fact that he must quickly and without hesitation break off human lives. The hope to survive becomes completely illusory, when the crew of “Rage” have to take part in a suicidal mission.
4K movie reviews
I will say right away – I like military subjects, I love history, I adore tanks and I respect Brad Pitt. That’s why I could not help visiting the “Fury Ultra HD” by David Eyre on the very first day of her release. An intriguing trailer, no less intriguing cast, can this be missed?
If to be honest to the end, then sitting in the cozy chair of the cinema, I did not expect to see something grandiose. We have become accustomed to the fact that in the productions about the war we are presented with medium-quality pictures with fantastic heroes. However, here lies the main charm of the movie “Fury 4K” – director David Eyre decided to show us the war from the inside.
The crew of the tank are absolutely ordinary people who were not fortunate enough to go to war:
Don Collier (Brad Pitt) – a stern commander, a man of his business, will never leave his comrades in trouble. Over the years, spent in the war, it became fierce to hate the Nazis, to be more exact – the SS, for their fanatical devotion to the cause, which does not stop at killing German children. It was thanks to him that the tank and its crew went through the whole war and survived.
Boyd Swan (Shia LaBeouf) – gunner, nicknamed “The Bible.” In the carriage he is a kind of a saintly person – he tries not to sin and live righteously. Nevertheless, he is a perfectly performing soldier, capable at the right time to shoot where he can not be reached.
Grady Travis (John Berntal) – charging, – a man who clearly got to the war from the farm. At first glance, this character may seem rude, repulsive, but in the course of the picture, we understand that he is the same as we are all, and he is rough as a result of the passage through the “prism” of the war.
“Proudly” Garcia (Michael Pe?a) is a driver capable of clearly performing commands, leading the tank so that everyone would be comfortable doing their job.
Norman “The Machine Gun” Allison (Logan Lerman) – the radio operator, in fact, the “white crow” in the tank. He got to the front quite recently, never shot and never sat in a tank. He tries to help with all his strength, but humanity, while remaining in it, prevents him. Get him another crew, maybe everything could go differently, but here all help him and give advice.
The cinema impresses with its atmospheric, we do not seem to sit in front of the screen, but stand next to the characters, in the middle of Germany in April 45th. The camp of the military prisoners is a scene with unceremonious stalling of corpses in a pit with the help of a bulldozer. Captured fascists, who do not understand what is waiting for them, remembering their atrocities. Bombing cities destroying a myriad of frightened, starving civilians. Soldiers are Germans who run like rats on the cracks, rested fighting despite an obvious fiasco. American soldiers, also saving Europe from the Nazi infection, but not inferior to the fascists in cruelty and lust. I liked the scenes with tanks, which use in the war their entire arsenal – from guns and heavy machine guns, to caterpillars, pressing enemies during the battle.
“Rage” shows a war without embellishment, where we will not see the sugary picture and holy images of the protagonists, but we will feel honesty and a real feat for the ultimate goal.
Ideals can be humane, history – never.
