“David Ayer is a very difficult director to predict the quality of movies he makes. one the one hand, he writes a terrific Training Day; on the other, he delivers a slightly less than awesome Street Kings. On the one he breaks the rules of action with the highly acclaimed End of Watch, and on the other, he turns up with Sabotage.
This makes Fury a fairly hard film to expect too much out of. The trailers and the rest of the promotional material do show a ton of promise, but with the case of Ayer, quality and consistency don’t usually seem to go hand in hand.
But of course, there’s the stellar cast consisting of the likes of Brad Pitt (Seven Years in Tibet), Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Shia LaBeouf (Nymphomaniac), Michael Peña (End of Watch) and Jason Isaacs (television’s acclaimed Awake). And you can’t really discount the fact that Ayer – who also doubles as writer, like with almost every directorial venture of his – has an insane bunch-load of talent. He’s got heavy potential that’s hard to ignore, despite his misses as an overall filmmaker.
For those who do not know of Ayer though, they already have their green signal right in place for the film due to their appropriately dramatic, stunningly well-done trailers, which screams loud and clear that in terms of its voice, it doesn’t aim to be a Saving Private Ryan by any means. What one needs to see is if the movie then matches the poignance that was Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line.”
