    Cruise is a star and like most stars that's because he's actually very good at what he does. He focuses a very strong cast for what is a decent film, based on a true story about an assassination attempt on Hitler.

    What I like about Valkyrie is that Hollywood finally have a look at WW2 showing that there were German people who saw what was happening and decided to fight back. For them to show that is important I think.…

    The illusion of risk. Drama without drama. English speaking German officers that completely gave up hiding their accents halfway through. Valkyrie portrays Adolf Hitler in the most non-threatening way possible and is the tamest and safest depiction of Nazi Germany I've ever seen.

    Impressive historical recreation that could use another half-hour of character development. Cruise's character at the end amounts to nothing more than a guy trying to get his wife on the phone - a cheap ploy to give him some humanity. It would have also been much better if it were in German, but at least it's not pretentious. It's a movie that's only about it's subject, so if that interests you, it's worth seeing. Script by Nathan Alexander and Christopher McQuarrie (Usual Suspects).

    Singer's clearly capable of making a good-looking movie, so why are Jack the Giant Slayer and X-Men: DOFP so ugly?

    If you enjoy those classic '70's thrillers that relied on creating suspense rather than big action sequences, then I would definitely recommend Valkyrie to you.

    It's not a perfect film, but it's a solid historical thriller, with a fine director behind the camera and a solid, low-key Tom Cruise in the lead. It moves along with a brisk pace and an engaging story, despite the fact that, if you're familiar with history, you already know how it's going to end.…

    The subject of the von Stauffenberg plot is a worthy one for a film and sincerity oozes from every pore of the script. However, much of the tone is misjudged - Singer tries to inject the film with suspense that can't come off as the result of the coup is a foregone conclusion while Cruise plays von Stauffenberg as a spiky, impassioned earnest anti-hero rather than the slick, cunning and charmismatic man the plan would require. An overly flashy supporting cast with too many people tilting for a Supporting Actor nomination further jars with the source material.

    When it comes to film genres war is probably my favourite but Valkyrie is nowhere near one of the best it never changes its pace, its not really exciting at all but it is well acted so I'd say if your a fan of the genre its at least watchable.

    Bryan Singer is a good director, though--like in his very different Superman Returns--there is a surprising lack of tension in Valkyrie, the true story of the Nazi officers who led a failed attempt on Hitler's life. So much of the film is consumed with explaining who's who and where they stand in the Reich that it can seem cold and distant. Little importance is given to what the men believe and what their plans are for Germany once Hitler is…

    Great cast, it's just a shame that not one of them could fake a German accent. This could have been decent but it just seems like nobody gave a fuck when they were making it.

    Watch out Adolf TC has your number !! Film depicts the failed plot of kill the Furher, while a modern presentable version of events it tries and fails to provide the suspense these actions should have provided.

    Based on actual events, a plot to assassinate Hitler is unfurled during the height of WWII.
    Told like a well-oiled suspense thriller, the makers take the motivations of the conspirators for granted.
