    Smart, tight, and compelling.

    The amazing true story of Nazi's attempting to kill Hitler has been admirably shaped into a three act screen play by McQuarrie. Not an easy feat. Most historical films don't succeed at giving a Hollywood structure to real life. Plus, McQuarrie knows how to write the cool dialogue.

    Tremendous cast bringing gravitas and wit to every performance. So many I would just name the whole cast if I started to pick some.

    Cruise is commanding and…

    Zero stars. I laughed for an hour then left the theater. Good comedy.

    A war film. Not much more.

    Very nicely played, though I had a sense of deja vu throughout. I think it reminded me slightly of Inglourious Basterds (which is a perfect film). Valkyrie takes itself far more seriously.

    The cast is absolutely superb. Tom Cruise: very cool. Bill Nighy: delightfully cowardly. Eddie Izzard: Eddie Izzard in a German uniform, which I find really distracting.

    Like Titanic, this film suffers a bit from the fact that we know how it will…

    Tom cruise as always nailed it. One of the most underrated films of both director Bryan Singer and lead actor Tom Cruise.

    This is a pretty effective thriller and amazing story. It has strong performances from the cast and although you know how it ends for them the movie manages to give some hope and redemption in the postcredit notes.

    This true story of the plot to kill Hitler is a great watch. Tom Cruise is actually a spitting image of the real Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg.

    Despite knowing how this mission plays out I thought they did good job building and maintaining suspense.

    Suspenseful, slow-burning recreation of an incredible story from history. Stunning production design adds tons of verisimilitude. Tom Cruise starts out as Tom Cruise but disappears into his role after about 10 minutes, and Bryan Singer's direction is sweeping without being overly glossy. The last 45 minutes or so are brilliant. It's an important film about an important topic.

    Surprisingly tense movie even though you know how it will end. The dvd has a great documentary about the real events worth checking out.

    Tense and brilliantly accurate, this film tells one of the greatest stories of World War II.

    There are always stories within the stories. It almost feels dirty to think of stories where Nazis did the right thing and yet I believe there must have been some.

    The problem with Valkyrie Is that the first part of the film does not really connect, whereas the last 30 minutes have an intensity that saves it for me. Tom seems like he's sorta sleep walking through that first part, there's not much to do. some talking and non of…
