Valkyrie

Went to see Valkyrie today with my youngest son. We had a very pleasant afternoon together, first having lunch and then later going to the film. I had read reviews that had basically panned it as dreadful, but I tend to ignore movie reviewers as a general principle, because most of them are just after attention anyway.

In this case my skepticism was rewarded. I was favorably impressed by the film, which was neither over the top in terms of violence, appeared to be fairly accurate factually, and was technically well-executed. I had known very little about the plot, and felt substantially impressed to know that there was a German resistance, even if it was insular and non-coordinated.

I'm not a huge Tom Cruise fan, with no disrespect intended. He has a lot of talent, but I just had a hard time seeing him as a Nazi officer, even one trying to stop a madman. Still, I'm glad I went to see it.

Overall Rating: 6.5 out of 10 stars
