  It wasn't only the Allies trying to kill Hitler

| | See all stuartfear's reviews (768)

The story of the last known assassination attempt on Hitler, a group of German officers as well as other high ranking officials had pulled together to create a plan to be ridden of the Fuhrer. You're giving a ringside seat to the forming of this scheme, you'll bear witness to the planning, the prep and the event itself. Good writing along with good directing makes you feel like you're apart of it. Is it 100% accurate, probably not but which historical movies are? Overall it's a good movie which helps to teach about another element of the War.

...yet fairly unknown. critical because it could have changed the history of world war II as we know it. truly interesting story, good movie and quite a star-cast. be sure you watch the included extra's, you'll see they did this casting on purpose (astonishing ressemblances with the real characters)

This should definitely be watched by anyone who has an interest in WW2, Hitler or War films in general.

It's a different take on all that but is a thriller with some interesting information which has largely stayed hidden - that Germans actually did try and rise up against Hitler!

Although everyone knows what happens in the end, the film gets there in an interesting way (as can only happen when something is based on true events).

Having lived in Berlin and seen where lots of the events in the film actually took place, and heard more of the story, I feel there is lots that isn't in the film that should be.

Only a 4/5 because I feel that the film was actually shorter than it needed to be. However, it did keep me gripped and was superbly directed and acted throughout.

Definitely worth watching!

  A star-studded cast heads this amazing film

I have watched this film and I must say it was very enjoyable. The star-studded cast which includes Bill Nighty, Eddie Izzard and Tom Cruise really brings this film to light and makes it a must watch. I was thoroughlly intrigued by the plot which was very well thought out and very stimulating to watch - It was amazing. The standard of the acting was very high and really made this film very special. I was very impressed by this film and reccomend it as a must buy.

  Learned something I didn't know

| | See all cherryc's reviews (33)

Tom Cruise was fab in this film. I was really engrossed all the way through. I had no idea this plot took place so was good to learn something new, all the way through I was urging them to have success but obviously I knew the outcome overall.
Very well played by all involved

  Brilliant Tense Thriller

| | See all Rambo456's reviews (1259)

This is one of the best Action Drama Thrillers of the last few years.
It does actually put you on the edge of your seat.
The story is both Heroic and Astonishing, showing a different side to Hitlers Germany.
The characters are brave and prepared to sacrifice their own live and the lives of their families for the Right thing.
Definitely one to watch. I highly recommend it.
The Direction from Bryan Singer was Top Notch.
Tom Cruise was Splendid once again. The supporting cast also did a Very Good Job.

  AWESOME FILM

| | See all TheDVDman3's reviews (3)

Valkyrie is a great war movie. I'm not a fan of war movies, but since I watched this at the begining of Februrary I've watched it four times so far and i'm gonna watch it again tonight. It has a great story. Tom Cruise is a great actor, and the Hitler look a like is uncanny. Buy this movie and watch it, It is the best film i've ever seen. Get it if you are a fan of war movies, and if your not...get it anyway. You won't regret it.

  THERE HAS TO BE A CHANCE OF SUCCESS

| | See all PATCHES1989's reviews (518)

This along with "Defiance" which were released week after each other provided some great entertainment especially for those who are fascinated with the second world war. The cast lead by Tom Cruise was fantastic and even though they spoke normally despite being nazis it didnt put me off at all. Enjoy
