If mem­o­rable war movies mean some­thing to you, open that book to a new page and add Fury to the list. It be­longs there. — Ken­neth Tu­ran, Los An­ge­les Times I couldn’t help sus­pect­ing that there’s a porno­graphic leer to it all, a sav­age glee. — Kyle Smith, New York Post At­ten­tion to de­tails give Fury heft and value, as does solid act­ing, but Ayer seems to lose his re­solve in two scenes that are straight out of a Sgt. Fury Mar­vel Comics episode, or maybe a Hol­ly­wood script rewrite. — Peter How­ell,

It’s easy to see the movie as a story of how war makes monsters out of men. But it’s a good deal more com­pli­cated than that. — Michael O’Sul­li­van,

Wash­ing­ton Post It never scales the cin­e­matic heights or reaches the same ground­break­ing level as Sav­ing Pri­vate Ryan, but it’s in­tensely fe­ro­cious and re­lent­lessly rough on the senses. You’ll know you’ve been to war, and not on the Hol­ly­wood front.

— Rex Reed, New York Ob­server
