About the Movie
At the height of WWII, a group of German officers hatched a plot to assassinate Hitler and seize control of the military command in order to end the war. The operation was code-named "Valkyrie", for the emergency plan that was meant to be used in case of a revolt against the Nazi government. This plan had been modified by the conspirators to ensure their success, but for various reasons the plot failed when finally carried out on 20 July 1944. The conspirators of the inner circle were shot after a kangaroo trial or sentenced to death soon after. Starring Tom Cruise as the Colonel who was the main force behind the conspiracy, the distinguished cast also includes Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp and Eddie Izzard. Directed by Bryan Singer.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Valkyrie, as field-commanded by director Bryan Singer, succeeds on its own terms as a handsome hybrid of conspiracy thriller and history lesson, of Mission: Impossible and The Day of the Jackal.
Fresh: Valkyrie is another entry into Cruise's canon of quality films and performances.
Rotten: Cruise, Singer, lose the credibility battle.
Fresh: A historically respectful, morally careful film.
Pretty Entertaining movie...and you learn something.
Not a bad movie at all. The critics (I think) were wrong about this one. It was highly entertaining and the movie didn't even have a whole lot of action. Tom Cruise might not have used an accent which bothered me a little but the movie still worked. I don't know if you should buy but definitely rent this one.
I WAS BLOWN AWAY when i saw this movie. definately a must see
The best thriller ever. It's worthy enough for Best Picture.
