Valkyrie (2008)

Starring: Tom Cruise (and many great character actors)
TMG Scale 8.0

This film is a not a Saturday night snot knocker.  Many who saw it were disappointed because they expected guns and bombs galore or Steve McQueen digging under POW camps I guess.  This was not Blitzkrieg though Europe.  Don’t go looking, there is no film by that name. This is a genuine historical treatment of the inside German opposition to eliminate Adolph Hitler. TMG did not research all the details but it certainly appeared historically accurate.  Cruise was at his best. TMG gives it an 8.0 rating because Cruise deserves it and the film should be watched by all high schoolers.  The moral TMG recalls from his youth is that all it takes for evil to succeed is

for a few good men (sorry no Cruise pun intended there) to remain silent.
