    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…

    The last of 15 assassination attempts by the Germans, the movie recreates an attempt in 1944 by German officers who wish to overthrow Hitler and seek a truce with the Allied forces. You can probably deduce whether it succeeded or failed before seeing it, but it doesn't take away from the power of the movie. Unfortunately, what does is all the British accents - it's very confusing to hear an enemy's language and to accept it as the protagonists. Major detriment.

    This is a well-crafted military thriller. Singer has assembled a stellar cast in service of a story of noble men of action who could no longer abide the atrocities of the Third Reich and their attempts to rid the world of true evil. The film does suffer a bit from the well-known results of the operation, which lessens some of the tension that makes thrillers riveting. Yet, this is still pretty exciting stuff.

    A German officer, disgusted by what his people are being forced to do, decides that the only way to save Germany and its people is to kill Hitler. He, along with a contingent of high-ranking German officials, makes and executes an elaborate plan to kill Hitler, stage a coups, and take over Berlin – but not everything goes to plan. Not a bad idea as a film, but it is hard for a story like this (which is mostly true) to gain momentum when history tells us that the plan fails. Mediocre acting doesn't help.
