Storyline Heading
An actor - famous for portraying an iconic superhero - struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy (Dark) - Despite the superhero-sounding title, constant verbal and visual references to superhero movies and super powers, and the presence of former Batman portrayer Michael Keaton, this is a dark comedy set backstage at a Broadway show. Fans of Keaton will savor this comeback starring vehicle, as will fans of the supporting cast that includes Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, and Zach Galifianakis. But this is a talky, acting-driven satire aimed at adults, not the action-oriented thing it could be mistaken as. Constant language and adult themes make this not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent It's powerfully clear that they all worked their asses of to make this complicated thrill ride look effortless. The result is one of the best times you'll have at the movies this year-which might even be the best movie this year.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Flesh-and-blood soldiers play second fiddle to the authentic-looking artillery in Fury, rendering the film tough and harrowing, but less emotionally compelling than it could have been.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good Instead, it's perhaps the most incisive and funniest Hollywood take on Broadway since Mel Brook's original 'The Producers.'
