Valkyrie is based on a true story. It stars Tom Cruise, who wears an eyepatch and plays Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, an officer who discovers he’s not the only one with intense thoughts of eliminating Der Führer! With the backing of an expansive web of resisters – from typists to generals – Stauffenberg hatches a plan to take Germany by coup and assasinate Adolf Hitler. It’s probably not a spoiler to say the plan doesn’t work since we know through the course of history, what happened to Hitler.

Reportedly, Valkyrie doesn’t really deal with great horrors of the Nazi’s. It supposedly includes no sermons about genocide or anti-Semitism; but rather it’s a movie about Nazi resisters inside the Nazi party. Some may really enjoy it as a thriller, others like me, have difficulty rooting for Nazi ‘underdogs’. Call me crazy!

So here are the details of the movie: It stars, of course, Tom Cruise, with Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp, Carice van Houten, and Eddie Izzard; it’s rated PG-13; it’s a full 2 hours long and it’s playing everywhere.
