Verdict on Southern Fury

Southern Fury is a crime thriller following a brother trying t get his older brother out of trouble with a mobster. It follows him trying to get into the underworld operation and learn how to connect as he searches for his brother.

This is a thriller that looks to introduce a string of different characters. It uses different dynamics to try and create tension around the bigger picture. However, it ends up doing everything we have seen before. Nothing feels as intense as it should be, and Nicolas Cage’s wig is hilarious. This is one of the more forgettable thrillers that lacks any intensity throughout the movie. 

Final ThoughtsSouthern Fury is a dull, lacklustre thriller.
