The Snobbiest Town in The Snobbiest State in the N
About a Russian Tank crew and a Muj RPG team in Afghanistan in the 1980's.

Truly an amazing movie. Some elements of 'The Flight of the Phoenix.'

If Fury is one of the most retarded tank movies ever made... this is one of the best. It's been playing on the Sony Network and is just really riveting. Some of my British Tank-building friends recommended it. @barneybdb knows the crew!

Highly-recommended!

Cheers,

Sirhr

Ditto for "Fury" being a bucket of chowder. Let's give it a spoiler review real quick.

Tank full of idiots somehow acquires an untrained liberal admin puke from the repo depo. He is stupid and worthless and objects to killing SS guys, so the film works hard to humanize the most brutal, evil soldiers to serve on the German side, devoted NAZI's are to be befriended by this character.

With the war all but over and their crappie tank broke down, they fight to the death with a full strength SS battalion who could have simply walked 100 yards to either side and avoided the entire problem. So hundreds of guys who knew they survived the war and were walking home kill themselves pointlessly by fighting five idiots in a immobile tank on a road to nowhere for no good reason.

Great plot.
