    Yay:

    + Some some decent tension, especially once the coup kicks into action.


    Nay:

    - I was simply bored for long stretches. Nothing hooked me. It doesn't look that great either.

    Entretenida y solvente cinta bélica basada en una conocida operación real. En el fondo, una suerte de recreación de las superproducciones de la II Guerra Mundial en el que un puñado de prestigiosos actores anglosajones interpretaban a oficiales nazis… esa clase de película contra la que se rebeló Quentin Tarantino en Malditos Bastardos, estrenada sólo unos pocos meses después.

    Okay, to be honest, I really can not STAND Tom Cruise as an actor. Most of the movies he's made have him playing himself and almost shouting with that cheesy grin of his: "I'm Tom Cruise. See how awesome I think I am!" So, I was initially very skeptical when I saw he was to appear in this movie. I was pleasantly surprised. Cruise was very low key and played this hero with the respect he deserved. A great performance. A great story. I loved it.

    Historical dramas usually have one thing going against them, history. How do you build a tension filled plot when everyone knows the outcome? That was Bryan Singer's biggest problem in the making of this brilliantly constructed thriller than focused on the unsuccessful attempt by a leading group of German officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler in the Summer of 1944. Bringing together an all star cast that would put most productions to shame, Singer made us invest our faith in these…

    Bryan Singer's historical thriller is nothing to write home about compared to his older works, but it's still an entertaining and meaningful experience.

    Well crafted by Bryan Singer, holds yr interest even though you know how it ends. Loads of British and German character actors...oh and Tom Cruise. ..

    It didn't matter that Bryan Singer directed one of the best thrillers of the past 20 years (The Usual Suspects), Tom Cruise in an eye-patch was enough of a reason to dismiss this movie sight unseen. Well, I was wrong.
