Fritz Lang United States, 1936

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Fury

A lame-duck, societal-issue drama by Fritz Lang that is quite ineffective in its drama. The plot struggles for life and verisimilitude in the first half, while the cleverness of the second half is absent, becoming heavy-handed in its plot and hiccuping in its pace. Odd Lang's M is so effective during its resolution's similar plot points 5 years earlier, while Fury chokes to death on an awkward self-importance.
