Review: Valkyrie

Director: Bryan Singer

Starring: Tom Cruise, Bill Nighy

Year: 2008

Genre: Action/Adventure

Rated: PG-13

Length: 121 min.

IMDB Summary: Based on actual events, a plot to assassinate Hitler is unfurled during the height of WWII.

Full of suspense and drama, Valkyrie is a historical film that's worth the watch. Cruise's restrained, mature acting contributes to the film's success, as well as the actual historical events depicted. I particularly liked the portrayal of Hitler in moments of solitude, which effectively added to the dark atmosphere of the film. Although Valkyrie may not be an all-time classic war movie, it is a suspenseful and dramatic film worth the watch.

For Parents:
Some violence and language
