The Attempt Against Hitler's Life

In July of 1944 a group of German army officers, wanting to end the Second World War in Europe and negotiate a peace with the Allies, sought to assassinate Adolf Hitler. The 2008 movie Valkyrie is a dramatization of the events leading up to, including, and after the assassination attempt against Hitler. Tom Cruise delivers a fine performance as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg (the main character of the movie); in fact, all of the actors do a great job of portraying the various personalities involved with this incident. In sum, Valkyrie is a suspenseful, well-acted, and finely crafted film with a grim, but predictable, conclusion.

Amazing Movie

This movie is amazing. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. Completely non-fiction in all its facts and details, but Cruise does an amazing job and keeps history from being boring. Horribly sad movie, but amazing.
