If you are a horse-lover who is interested in seeing "Fury" —

Say you decide to take your WW2-loving fiance out to see Fury for a date night movie.

Please be aware that this is not a horse-friendly movie. You will think all has passed when the opening scene features a horse who is treated well. It will not have passed. 3/4 of the way through is a horrible story about horses used to illustrate the barbarity of war.

Plus, it’s an unsettling, disturbing, graphically violent movie – even more so, perhaps, than your typical WW2 action movie. Saving Private Ryan had more heart, but Fury has far more wanton cruelty, battle stress, and gore.

Consider yourself warned!

  1. I actually think it was a pretty good movie, if narratively uneven. The tank battle was awesome. We are a household of military historians, so it was always going to be on our list.

    It's just that I personally always appreciate a heads up of difficult horse stuff in movies, and that scene in the apartment with the story was really squicky for me.


  2. A little, yeah, though this was just a story about terrible things, and you didn't see any terrible things happen to horses, thankfully. “War Horse” was much harder to watch.
