I'm appalled at the way the specialized and not so specialized media attacked Tom Cruise for this movie. Why? He's not just good but very good in his against type performance. I've heard critics calling him "distractingly bad", how ridiculous and nasty. The film by the great craftsman Bryan Singer is a suspenseful, beautifully made historical thriller with a remarkable attention to detail. In an effort to be accurate the Jews are never mention because in fact the attempt to assassinate Hitler had nothing to do with that. The real reason? The war had turned against the Germans, it was clear that they were entering a down spiral and Hitler's madness was at the center of that. Regardless of the fact we know how the story ends, the movie manages to be a gripping tale based on real events. Well done Mr.Cruise, you won! Your Valkyrie is performing stupendously at the almighty box office.

First, I want to say that some time ago I learned to distrust critics and instead read the reviews here on IMDb. I&#39;ve never been misled, even when an equal number of viewers liked and disliked the same movie because that let me know there was a matter of taste in play, and that&#39;s fine. Sometimes a movie pleases everyone, but that&#39;s so rare I cant really think of one. People have different tastes and that&#39;s good. But the value of IMDb reviews is that they are based on a genuine response to the movie - not a bias, or some other agenda.<br/><br/>For example, the Fox critic Roger Friedman listed this movie as one of the worst of 2008 - without having seen the movie. That&#39;s right. He rated it without seeing it. It was a classic and reprehensible case of bias and perhaps even bigotry since he was engaging in Tom Cruise bashing which is usually practiced in conjunction with dissing Tom&#39;s religion.<br/><br/>So I don&#39;t trust critics to tell the truth or give an unbiased review.<br/><br/>I saw Valkyrie and enjoyed it immensely. I&#39;ve studied the Hitler period and was familiar with most of the events but the movie educated me while it thrilled and entertained me. It is a movie I was happy to take my teen-aged children to see because it also educated and entertained them. I thought the cast did a great job. The script was outstanding and the direction excellent. Tom Cruise gave a dimension to Von Stauffenberg that deepened my understanding of the events. The supporting cast were brilliant. <br/><br/>I highly recommend it.<br/><br/>PS. It&#39;s some time since I wrote this review and I took thirty minutes tonight to read the other reviews on this movie, not surprisingly they are mostly very positive and unanimous in praising it. Interestingly, the critics, including the one named above, who trashed the movie without even seeing it, obviously did so in an effort to kill it at the box office. While many other reviewers noted this too, I&#39;d like to point out that those critics and possibly some of the people who &#39;dont like Tom Cruise because of his weird religion&#39; are actually following the same path that made it possible for Hitler to kill off millions of Jews who also had a &#39;weird religion&#39;. Considering the historical background of Valkyrie I find that quite ironical.

&quot;Valkyrie&quot; takes on an important event in the history of Nazi Germany: the failed assassination attempt of German officers of the Wehrmacht against Hitler in 1944. Most Germans like myself are quite familiar with the story of the &quot;Stauffenberg-Attentat&quot; since it was not only the topic of many German docudramas (e.g. one made by well-known director Pabst in 1955) but is also widely discussed in history class in school. <br/><br/>I was pleasantly surprised about the &quot;American&quot; interpretation in Valkyrie and think that Singer and Cruise came up with an excellent film. Although the outcome is known and the movie develops rather slowly in the beginning, it manages to create a highly suspenseful and darkish-intense atmosphere that keeps you captivated until the end. Complains regarding the American/English accents and the German actors not speaking with German accents, or criticizing that Stauffenberg was &quot;in reality&quot; more charming and not as stiff as Cruise&#39; interpretation, are niggling and banal at best. The movie does not focus on the private, psychological side of Stauffenberg but on his leading role in the assassination plot planned and executed amidst the &quot;heart of darkness&quot;, which -we can be sure- was more than nerve-wracking and left certainly little space for charm and jokes. BTW: I was glad to see Nina von Stauffenberg portrayed as the knowing and smart wife that she actually was. The performance of all actors is superb, and Cruise certainly deserves special praise since his commitment to the role is tangible and remarkably intense.<br/><br/>Highly recommended!
