VALKYRIE (2008 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Valkyrie—some of the best direction I’ve seen yet on a World War II film—sits among my favorite films of 2008. The storyline revolves around the Hitler assassination attempt by Germany’s highest ranking military leaders.

Storyline

Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise) attempts to assassinate Hitler (David Bamber).

Additional Thanks

Director Bryan Singer outdid himself on this story. Thank you to Executive Producers Ken Kamins, Chris Lee, John Ottman, Dwight C. Schar, Mark Shapiro, and Daniel M. Snyder; Music Composer John Ottman; and Script Writers Christopher McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander for making possible an outstanding film. Additional characters/cast include: Major-General Henning Von Tresckow (Kenneth Branagh), General Friedrich Olbricht (Bill Nighy), General Friedrich Fromm (Tom Wilkinson), Ludwig Beck (Terence Stamp), and General Erich Fellgiebel (Eddie Izzard).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes.
