365 Movies: Fury Review

Fury stars Sylvia Sidney, Spencer Tracy, Frank Albertson, George Walcott, Bruce Cabot, Walter Brennan, Edward Ellis, and Walter Abel in this 1936 film directed by Fritz Lang. The film is about an innocent man, who is accused of a crime he didn't commit. When the people of the town, hear of the capture, they are outraged that police aren't doing anything about it. Their anger and frustration over how the government system is going, they put plans into action and burn down the jail with the innocent man inside. They later find out, the man they had thought was guilty wasn't and now they are paying for what they did. This is such a powerful movie and throughout the movie, I had my mouth agape. I couldn't believe how disgusting people act and the movie definitely leaves you thinking ''What if that did happen?'' Sylvia, once again proves to me she was one of the most underrated actresses of her time. She excels in the role as Joe Wilson's(Tracy) fiancée. You feel sympathy for her and you want justice done. Spencer was superb and I think this is my favorite Spencer movie. He was really amazing in this film. The supporting actors were so astounding to watch especially the actors in the lynch mob and the brothers played by Frank Albertson and George Walcott.
