Valkyrie ★★★

A wonderful ensemble cast guides us through a brisk, tightly-drawn story of the last attempt on Hitler's life. That it's mixed with American, British, and German accents is a major complaint in itself, but once you get past that, what you have is a tightly-drawn thriller, directed by the always-adequate Bryan Singer. Quite enjoyable end of the year fair. I thought I might like it more, but it's certainly nice to see a good popcorn movie amidst all the Oscar bait.
