Fury

Continuity mistake: In the final war scene, when they first run out of ammunition, Grady puts a belt into the coaxial .30, and as he is firing you can see the end of the belt, but in the outer scene when the German is hitting war daddy with a shovel, the coaxial is still firing.

Continuity mistake: As Sgt. Collier is speaking with Lt. Parker, Collier turns his head to the right in the first shot to face Parker, then turns his face right again to face Parker a second time.

Continuity mistake: When Parker is engulfed in flames, he pulls out his handgun and shoots through the helmet in his right temple. In the next shot, there is neither a bullet hole nor blood stain on his helmet. (00:24:25)

Yue Hin Yeung

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before the Tiger tank fires on the American tanks, there is a shot taken of the four tanks rolling along at a distance where it is quite clear that the two tanks in front have long barrels on their main gun eg: M4 Shermans with 76mm high velocity guns. Then in the next shot that second long barrel tank is gone and now there are 3 short barrel tanks and only Fury with the 76mm gun.

Continuity mistake: Before the last stand Wardaddy takes a bottle and drinks two gulps before passing it to Bible. In his hands the bottle is full again.

Rizzo Gallop

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when Wardaddy jumps the German officer riding the horse, he is holding him down with his left hand while stabbing him in the gut with his right hand. When the shot changes at the final thrust, he is holding the knife with both hands as he twists the knife to pull it out of his left eye socket. (00:03:15)

Jim Stone

Continuity mistake: Wardaddy uses a Sturmgewehr 44 throughout the movie. In the first shot where he shoots the teenage German soldier, the Sturmgewehr 44 is missing the front sight hood. The hood appears throughout the movie afterwards. (00:24:05)

Continuity mistake: When the SS officer is killed for hanging children, his papers land by his head. When the shot changes, his papers are now by his feet. (00:48:30)

Factual error: In the hedgerow battle, the Fury tank platoon face off with a German MG 42 machine gun and two 7.5 cm Pak 40 anti-tank gun. Each of these guns opens fire only after the previous one gets knocked out. In a real combat situation, all of the guns would open fire at the same time and establish a cross fire, effectively suppressing the ground troops and tanks from advancing. (00:31:35 - 00:33:30)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: By the time the movie takes place (mid to late April 1945) the German army was mostly inexperienced troops with an incredibly small nucleus of veterans. Though the tactical use of weapon systems you mention is correct, I doubt most of the formations still putting up a fight in Germany proper would have had the knowledge/ability to carry it out.

With low experience I would expect the soldiers to open fire too soon and with no communication between guns to create the "talking gun" effect. The fact that the two guns opened fire separate of each other makes very little tactical sense regardless of skill or experience.

With no experience it is more likely they would open fire as the 1st guns fires. With all 3 stations opening fire they would have had more chance to succeed.

Wardaddy: It will end, soon. But before it does, a lot more people have to die.

More quotes from Fury

Trivia: Staff Sergeant Collier's nickname, "War Daddy" is based on the nickname of real World War 2 Sherman tank commander Staff Sergeant Lafayette G. Pool, who fought with the 3rd Armored Division. Pool survived the war (though he lost a leg from his last combat operation) and died in 1991.

Question: What exactly did it take to get Norman to become brave and more willing to fight?

Answer: Although he starts out afraid, awkward and hesitant, Norman gradually becomes battle-hardened throughout the film. But there is one event that probably changes Norman more than anything: When his one-night love interest, Emma, is killed during a German attack. After that, the tank crew realises that Norman has changed, become harder and more focused, and they finally accept him as a team member with the nickname "Machine."
