A Plot to Kill Hitler Review

Image for A Plot to Kill Hitler

Historical recreation of the 1944 plot by German High Command Officers to assassinate the Furher, lead by Wehrmacht Colnel Count von Staufenberg.

★★★★

A TV movie trivialization of the events leading up to the July 1944 bomb plot against the Furher.

Brad Davis is hopelessly out of his depth as the prime conspirator Colonel Von Stauffenberg, while the many scenes with his wife (Madolyn Smith) and kidi turn what should be a first class political thriller into another embarrassingly sentimental slice of love and devotion.

Inadequate on all fronts.
