    Good, but not good enough to transcend the fact everybody knows how the story turns out.

    A sad, tragic story. Though I knew the fate of the plot, I was still held in great suspense. Great cast and performances.

    Tom Cruise travels back in time to assassinate Hitler. Okay, that's not fair. Tom Cruise stars as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg who leads a group of German Army officers who plot to kill Hitler.

    This is by all accounts, a largely accurate retelling of the true story. It's a well-acted, great looking movie. It's exciting and interesting and Cruise is very good in his role. As I've stated before, he gets criticized unfairly too often. He is one of the…

    I was watching my baby nephew at the same time so I did get distracted at times. But what I saw, which was about 93% of the movie, I liked. I find anything WWII/Hitler so interesting. My brother-in-law who was also watching kept making fun of the slouch-shouldered Hitler. It was great. Tom Cruise wasn't his charming self but I forgive him, given the circumstance.

    I found this very good. Complaining about the fact that the actors speak english is silly. I mean, come on people...where is your imagination?

    Well-made and exciting.

    Valkyrie is a well-executed yet somewhat dry and stuffy World War II thriller. It's slow at times, but it's superbly acted and skillfully directed.

    First of all, for those nagging about the Cruiser and the rest of the British cast, if you desperately want a more authentic cast, seek out the earlier version with Sebastian Koch as the lead. Otherwise, shut it.

    That goes for me as well, I guess, seeing as I stayed well clear of this until just now. I just didn't take it seriously.
    Still don't perhaps, but Singer manages to make this obvious tale somewhat tense at times, and the cast does well under the cirmustances (why Udo Kier decided on an American accent puzzled me somewhat, though).
    Decent Sunday evening flick, at the very least.

    Despite the fact that the ending of Valkyrie is revealed as soon as you read the plot synopsis, and despite the fact that you have a principally American and British cast speaking with their native accents playing high-ranking German officers, this film works. Beyond all reasonable logic, it is tense, it is totes emoshe, and it is consummately directed. Tom Cruise is great so suck it haters.

    Great story marred by Tom Cruise as a WWII German officer. With that casting in place I expected Hitler to be played by Captain Kangaroo.

    It's hard to make byzantine what's historically irrefutable. Hitler wasn't assassinated, so how does one prolong the climatic train wreck? The film initially addresses this problem by proceeding as a venerable espionage piece, heavy on covert dialogue, underground meeting rooms, ambiguous terms - redressing the spy film from what James Bond has done to it. No CGI, no real action to even speak of. I was kind of digging it until the actual plan went into effect, at which point it reverts to a sleek heist film, devoid of any juicy details.

    Sorta enjoyable, sorta boring. It was a cool story and there are some in the cast that acted really well. I've already forgotten most of the movie and I just watched it the other day.
