Set in 1944, this is the story of a courageous group of Russian soldiers captured by the Germans following a sustained and fierce fighting and relentless tank battles. Taken to a POW camp, they are given an opportunity to restore a T-34 tank, but plan to use it to escape.
We like it because:
Iron Fury starts as it means to go on - with a bang, as two tanks duel in Russia during World War Two. Starring Alexander Petrov (recently seen in Luc Besson’s action thriller Anna), as a Russian tank commander stuck in a German POW camp, the film is a visceral assault on the senses, featuring some of the most heart-stopping and authentic tank skirmishes ever seen on film.
A smash hit in Russia, the film broke box office records in that country when it opened earlier this year, blasting its way to the top of the charts, where it has raked in an astonishing $35million to date.
Written and directed by Alexsey Sidorov, Iron Fury is a thrillingly effective war film, stylishly filmed, and packed with metal mangling action sequences and astonishing special effects, adding up to a thundering good time that mixes Das Boot with The Great Escape.
