In Fury the story about a tank crew behind enemy lines at the end of the war is told with a ton of action. It is April of 1945. As the Allies make their final push into Europe, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
