What happens when Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman and Shia LaBeouf go on tank patrol?
Best: Battle scenes
I hate talking about the battle footage out of context just in terms of whether or not it looks "good," but Ayer and his various collaborators have created some truly harrowing material here. There's a scene involving a Tiger tank and a column of American tanks that is, as far as I know, unique to movie history, and considering how many WWII movies there have been, that's saying something. It is graphic, it is chaotic, but Ayer was obviously obsessed with the tangible details of combat and did a great job conveying that.
