    For the fact that this movie tries to be a historical drama it pretty much fails in almost all regards. The majority of the main actors are of English/American descent and as a result all their communication is held in accent-free English, despite their portrayal of German officers. This leaves me with the conclusion that the main intention behind the casting was to just include some Hollywood calibers, of the likes of Tom Cruise, to primarily secure the financial success…

    I mean, anything that involves a plot to kill Hitler has got to gain a couple of stars, and oh good LORD were these people brave. I mean not as brave as the holocaust survivors or a number of other people and IRL were largely concerned with self preservation rather than any reaall anti-fascist zeal, but still, they gave up their lives for a good cause and I do really like the telling of the story, the end of which…

    German officers plan to assassinate Hitler

    A decent movie that reminds me of heist movies in the way they plan out and prepare the assassination. Has its moments when it becomes really good. But overall its average.

    ★★★½ Rewatched by Dennis 10 Feb, 2016

    Wunderbar gespielter Thriller, der leider vollkommen zu Unrecht, seiner Zeits, in Kontroversen untergegangen ist.

    Der Cast ist handverlesen, die Atmosphäre zum Schneiden dick, einzig das Skript fühlt sich holprig und sehr zusammengekürzt an. Schade, denn dieses Kapitel der deutschen Geschichte hätte ruhig ausführlicher verarbeitet werden können.

    Tom Cruise ist außerhalb seines Standard-Modus und zeigt, dass er auch in dramatischen Rollen weiterhin sein Bestes gibt. Auch von Bryan Singer hätte ich nicht so ein Ergebnis erwartet...

    Spannend, obwohl der Plot bekannt ist. Stark besetzt, obwohl Tom Cruise bis zum Schluss merkwürdig heraussticht. Stark, obwohl Singer vorher mit Superman Returns so daneben griff. Ich kann mich immer noch nicht entscheiden, was ich von dem Film halte.

    Aber, was mir wirklich positiv auffiel ist der starke Einstieg und das langsame Aufbrechen der Sprachbarriere. Berits die Titel-Einblendung spielt mit der beiden Sprachen. Aus einem deutschen Voice Over von Tom Cruise wird langsam ein englisches. Schöne Idee und stark umgesetzt.
