Germany, 1943. The 14th attempt to assassinate Hitler — by his own side — has just gone wrong. The conspirators need a new plan. Enter crippled Wehrmacht hero Claus von Stauffenberg (Cruise), with a bold plot to blow up Hitler in his Wolf’s Lair.
A film more concerned with ‘how’ than ‘why’ or ‘who’, Valkyrie would have benefited from more scrutiny and complexity. Still, once the bomb goes off, the thrills come in spades.
