  1. Marco Tassinari's rating of the film The Fury

  2. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Fury

    Despite some promising elements this is a lumpen mish-mash of punishment horror, governmental corruption drama and action thriller, not to say some throwaway moments of tragedy. None are well developed and one is left with the occasional bravura outburst of bloodletting, not to say an egregious anti-Arab sentiment. Scanners did it so much better - body horror that is, not Middle Eastern politics...

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Fury

    Upon rewatch my opinion is about the same: it's at its best in the 2-3 scenes involving Amy Irving's abject experience with her power, and an otherwise middling late-70s/early-80s studio horror film. So much of it could've been directed by anyone...devotes too much time to the conspiracy stuff.

  4. spasmolytic's rating of the film The Fury

    Hard to describe. Not good but not terrible.

  5. Ethan's rating of the film The Fury

    This would make a nice double bill with Scanners.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film The Fury

    A vouloir trop faire, trop épater, comme souvent à son habitude, Brian de Palma vire dans le ridicule consommé, l'emphase pseudo-scientifique, l'esbroufe navrante...

  7. Renton47's rating of the film The Fury

    A prickly, paranoid post-60s slice of government malaise. Everyone is using or being used, including the scapegoating of terrorists which might sit well with conspiracy fiends today. De Palma's technical embellishments are central to our inclusion in the mystery, a game of changing perceptions. The material is weak but the craft is exceptional, forgiving the mismatched score.

  9. Michael Peer's rating of the film The Fury

    Even De Palma isn't a fan of this film. While there are some cool sequences - OK maybe just the ending - the movie is a rambling connection of parallel stories that you'll be able to put together by the end of act 1. It's fun watching Kirk Douglas and John Cassavettes rule the screen together, but the material is so vapid and unengaging that any modern audience will not be able to hold their attention. Disappointing.

  10. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film The Fury

    Great scenes in this flick but not great de Palma. The explosion in the end is still bad ass tho

  11. James Mackin's rating of the film The Fury

    Reminded me a lot of Scanners, but Scanners isn't the type of film De Palma should be making. No, he needs to make more movies in which women are killed using excessively large drills.

  12. petit astronaute's rating of the film The Fury

  13. José Neves's rating of the film The Fury

    Re-rating. Rewatched in a magnificent 35mm copy. Only a great filmmaker could make a movie as valid from a base material so rough and poor and not make it laughable. De Palma did not like this film but i can say that is not shameful and much better than some he assumed as his own movies, like "The Untouchables," "The Black Dahlia" or "Scarface". Just see how Chicago is filmed.

  14. Ryan Swen's rating of the film The Fury

    Schlock tempered by something more.

  15. Mtume Gant's rating of the film The Fury

    2.5 De Palma's issue for me is that he hardly could get past his inner urge to fall heavily into camp, The Fury being one of the leading examples. You find it fun only because its silly and can't be taken seriously, even though you know he wishes you would.

  16. film_lies101's rating of the film The Fury

    The beginning and ending are great but the middle really drags. Cronenberg would go on to improve on this concept quite a bit

  17. Will Carnes's rating of the film The Fury

  18. Andrew Miller's rating of the film The Fury

    Exuberantly trashy. All sorts of odd nooks and crannies in this absurdly ramshackle apartment.

  19. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film The Fury

    Pretty average overall, even though the ending is gold.

  20. dave gunn's rating of the film The Fury

    Following Carrie, De Palma managed to create a completely different kind of girl with telekinetic powers, adding government conspiracy and upping the ante on the practical gore. Irving's intense facial gestures and fierce eyes capture her fury, and De Palma's one-of-a-kind direction behind the camera is like a conductor to an experimental orchestra. The ending puts Scanners to shame.

  21. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Fury

    I can see how, on the heels of Carrie, this looked like a vague, slow, lukewarm retread of old ideas. But four decades later, when prime era De Palma films are a limited resource, it's a fun Tuesday night, where concerns about shaky plotting or muddled psychodrama can get tarted up in a seductive surface. Bonus points for evil John Cassavetes.

  22. Warren Spratley's rating of the film The Fury

  23. Amandenberg's rating of the film The Fury

    Brian De Palma is a champion. This movie is so legendary I can't even handle it.

  24. Endre's rating of the film The Fury

    Each and every scene is alot better than the whole, aren't they?
