Valkyrie is a movie based on historical events of War War 2 when Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg and other Nazi officers attempted to assassinate Adolph Hitler. They obviously didn't succeed with their plot but for a moment you feel that they did and you wonder how they could have changed history. Valkyrie was well done and was quite suspenseful. The cast was excellent and they gave the movie a very realistic and believable feel.

I like Tom Cruise despite all the negative Scientology PR that follows him. On a side note, this is one of the few Cruise movies that does not feature him sprinting in on of the scenes. I thought it was strange that I was rooting for the Nazis in this movie but at least they were the ones trying to get rid of Hitler.

Valkyrie is one of the better war movies that has come out in the last 10 years. I give it a 7.7 stars.
