Col. Claus von Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise) serves Germany with loyalty and pride but fears that Hitler will destroy his country if allowed to run unchecked. With time running out for Germany and the rest of Europe, von Stauffenberg joins a group of like-minded, high-ranking men who want to overthrow the Nazi regime from within. With everything he holds dear in the balance, von Stauffenberg becomes the trigger man in a plot to assassinate the evil dictator.

Simon Miraudo (Quickflix) Valkyrie is another entry into Cruise’s canon of quality films and performances. Full review
Ali Gray (TheShiznit.co.uk) Valkyrie isn’t a classic war movie by any means, but is it the total laughing stock many feared? Nein. Full review
Lisa Schwarzbaum (Entertainment Weekly) 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. Full review
Kelly Vance (East Bay Express) If there’s one thing Cruise knows how to portray, it’s robotic single-mindedness. Full review
Dave White (Movies.com) Counterbalancing the energy vacuum that is Cruise is the good news that this is also a Bryan Singer movie. Full review
Joshua Starnes (ComingSoon.net) 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. Full movie
Don Groves (sbs.com.au) Cruise, Singer, lose the credibility battle. Full review
Luis Martinez (Cinenganos) 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 2026” Full review
Kevin Carr (7M Pictures) the action is traded for suspense in the movie, which is when things really click Full review
Matt Soergel (Florida Times-Union) 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. Full review
Sonny Bunch (Washington Times) 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. Full Review
Fernando F. Croce (CinePassion) It’s never a pretty sight when a limited performer tries to “stretch” by way of cosmetics Full review
Anders Wotzke (Moviedex) [Cruise] looks about as German as Jackie Chan would in a lederhosen. Full review
Walter Chaw (Film Freak Central) It’s the perfect film for our age of reassessment and ambiguity. Full review
Louis Proyect (rec.arts.movies.reviews) Earnest and understated movie about the General’s plot against Hitler. Despite Cruise’s reputation for derring-do characters, this is a very human German colonel that he plays. Full review
Peter Canavese (Groucho Reviews) [A] pleasing throwback to 1970s war-intrigue pictures. [Blu-ray] Full review
David Nusair (Reel Film Reviews) …finally can’t help but come off as something of a minor disappointment… Full review
Jeffrey Chen (Window to the Movies) The movie proceeds to show how everything, little by little, falls out of place — not the most thrilling of events to cover, but interesting all the same. Full review
Jeffrey M. Anderson (Combustible Celluloid) [Cruise] brings a gung-ho excitement and energy that’s generally missing from war movies today (they’re more concerned with being stern and glum and anti-war). Full review
Kam Williams (NewsBlaze) An interminable costume drama strictly for Tom Cruise fans and for World War II buffs. Full review
