Fury comes to us from writer-director David Ayer, who gave us such recent tough guy flicks as End of Watch (pretty good) and Sabotage (just okay). He also wrote the original Fast and Furious film and Training Day.
Ayer is kind of a mixed bag for me. On one hand, his approach reminds me of John Milius. On the other hand, his films are more notable for their great casting choices than their script. It’ll be interesting to see what he does with a World War II film.
