The Failed Plot Against Tom Cruise

I'm appalled at the way the specialized and not so specialized media attacked Tom Cruise for this movie. Why? He's not just good but very good in his against type performance. I've heard critics calling him "distractingly bad", how ridiculous and nasty. The film by the great craftsman Bryan Singer is a suspenseful, beautifully made historical thriller with a remarkable attention to detail. In an effort to be accurate the Jews are never mention because in fact the attempt to assassinate Hitler had nothing to do with that. The real reason? The war had turned against the Germans, it was clear that they were entering a down spiral and Hitler's madness was at the center of that. Regardless of the fact we know how the story ends, the movie manages to be a gripping tale based on real events. Well done Mr.Cruise, you won! Your Valkyrie is performing stupendously at the almighty box office.

Coping With Lifetime Attempts

Movie Review: "Valkyrie" (2008)

This event movie has it all; dramatized real-event history, an ensemble cast led by highest-ranked Hollywood star Tom Cruise, thrilling cinematography in elegant accurately-research WW2 National-socialist décor down to the button on any given costume designed by Joanna Johnston, when Director Bryan Singer must comprehend that he took a turn for worse by directing "Superman Returns" (2006) instead match-making "X-Men: The Last Stand" to emotional repulsive as fascinating showdown on an torn Golden Gate Bridge between the mesmerizing iconic confrontation between Hugh Jackman (aka Wolverine) & Famke Janssen (as Dark Phoenix), which had been needed so desperately in "Valkyrie", when main character Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg's portrayal by Tom Cruise comes to emotional suspense-delivering admitted assassination of German-society leading historical recreated figure Adolf Hitler, when a superb ensemble including Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson and Tom Hollander mimicking German Nazi-officers under the re-juveniling Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer affiliated label "United Artists", founded on February 5th 1919 by Hollywood legends Mary Pickford (1882-1979), Charles Chaplin (1889-1977), Douglas Fairbanks (1883-1939) and D.W. Griffith (1875-1948), comes into motion picture extravaganzas in gripping 115-Minute-Editorial by Christopher McQuarrie-screenplay elevated editor/composer John Ottman. "Valkyrie" remains a perfectly-executed motion picture open for revisits due to solely effortless pleasures of action-thriller entertainment with a reflecting "World-War-2" backdrop.

Good, but weak

The actors did a wonderful job, unfortunately it's not just up to them. This story should be stronger, as were those times. I didn't really feel the pain of those brave people who stood up to the regime. Also, some history facts are not correct, but you can expect that from a Hollywood movie. Don't expect to see a great film, like The Bunker or Life is beautiful, but rather a good watch.
