At the absolute height of World War II, German generals hatch a daring plan to assassinate Adolf Hitler and effectively render the German war machine impotent. Directed by Bryan Singer, Valkyrie stars Tom Cruise as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, the real-life mastermind behind the elaborate plot known as Project Valkyrie: a plan to assassinate Hitler and overthrow his government from the inside. Stauffenberg has been a loyal soldier and an asset to the Reich for his entire military career, but after losing an eye, a hand, and three fingers in an Allied bombing, he reaches a breaking point.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Valkyrie, as field-commanded by director Bryan Singer, succeeds on its own terms as a handsome hybrid of conspiracy thriller and history lesson, of Mission: Impossible and The Day of the Jackal."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"It is a well-made film that raises timeless questions about the demands of military duty when they are placed in conflict with higher principles."
‑ Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
"Valkyrie isn't a classic war movie by any means, but is it the total laughing stock many feared? Nein."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"As both a World War II film and a conspiracy story Valkyrie largely succeeds. No one part may stand above its fellows (not to mention other films) but what it adds up to is more than worthwhile and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"the action is traded for suspense in the movie, which is when things really click"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"As old-fashioned historical escapism goes, this is solid, compelling stuff."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"What if this lesser-known chapter of German resistance had been more deeply captured? What if the moral conflicts running through this movie about love of country and revolt said more about Germany, war and, yes, genocide?"
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"If there's one thing Cruise knows how to portray, it's robotic single-mindedness."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"Cruise, Singer, lose the credibility battle."
‑ Don Groves, sbs.com.au
"Singer can only touch on the surface of each development. It would help if we could see the failure reflected in von Stauffenberg's one good eye, but Cruise, alas, can offer little help. He's just Tom Cruise in an eyepatch."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
"Surely there is some middle ground between a history lesson and mindless action-adventure. The people who made Valkyrie not only didn't find that ground; they weren't even looking for it."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Singer keeps the conspiracy racing to its fated conclusion."
‑ Tom Maurstad, Dallas Morning News
"Counterbalancing the energy vacuum that is Cruise is the good news that this is also a Bryan Singer movie."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"El Caso de Valquiria como cinta es muy interesante pues a pesar de que todos sabemos el desenlace, la realización logra mantenernos pegados a la butaca pidiendo de forma imposible que el complot funcione y dejándonos al final con un montón de "Y si%u2026""
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"Maintaining tension in the face of a foregone conclusion is no mean trick, but Mr. Singer and company do as well as anyone could hope."
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
