Valkyrie

 

USA 2008, 121 minutes
Dir. Bryan Singer
Rating: [M]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / History, War

Topics: Period 1940s.

 

Aroview: Hollywood crosses enemy lines with Tom Cruise perversely cast as a disaffected Nazi officer who leads a plot to assassinate Hitler.

Dispensing with accents across the board, if not Cruise's air of self-righteousness, this doesn't come close to authentic dramas like DOWNFALL, or even SCHINDLER'S LIST, but it does have a certain pulpy panache that one would expect from the dir. of X-MEN. Degree of enjoyment may depend on the viewer's knowledge of the 'true' story, which offers a mixed bag dramatically, but it does finally build toward a tense, tragic denouement.
