Valkyrie isn't a classic war movie by any means, but is it the total laughing stock many feared? Nein.

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.

Counterbalancing the energy vacuum that is Cruise is the good news that this is also a Bryan Singer movie.

As both a World War II film and a conspiracy story Valkyrie largely succeeds. No one part may stand above its fellows (not to mention other films) but what it adds up to is more than worthwhile and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised.

El Caso de Valquiria como cinta es muy interesante pues a pesar de que todos sabemos el desenlace, la realización logra mantenernos pegados a la butaca pidiendo de forma imposible que el complot funcione y dejándonos al final con un montón de "Y si%u2026"

Maintaining tension in the face of a foregone conclusion is no mean trick, but Mr. Singer and company do as well as anyone could hope.

It's the perfect film for our age of reassessment and ambiguity.

Earnest and understated movie about the General's plot against Hitler. Despite Cruise's reputation for derring-do characters, this is a very human German colonel that he plays.

The movie proceeds to show how everything, little by little, falls out of place -- not the most thrilling of events to cover, but interesting all the same.

[Cruise] brings a gung-ho excitement and energy that's generally missing from war movies today (they're more concerned with being stern and glum and anti-war).
Simon Weaving

A thrilling political war movie that sees Tom Cruise and a stellar British cast of high-ranking German officers plot to assassinate Hitler and end the war before the Germany they love is destroyed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

When he is at the top of his game, as he is here, Cruise's charisma is blinding.

Valkyrie isn't a great war movie, but within its own limited ambitions, it is enjoyable and never dull.
