  1. Think along the lines of point and realism…

    What is the point of watching a PG-13 movie about Nazi’s from the Nazi point of view about the plot to kill Hitler.

    How can someone seriously make a film about Nazi’s, and expect it to be realistic, and still get a PG-13 rating. I also found myself lost as to why the Nazi’s had various accents from across the world, but none sounded like they were German…

    AND, the writing on certain forms (not all forms) was German, yet nobody spoke German.

    Plus, everybody already knew (if they paid attention in history class) that Hitler committed suicide. So why waste your time watching a film about something that you know is not going to work in the first place, only to pull for a Nazi posing as a good guy, and all under a family friendly rating?

    Need I say more?

  2. Tom Cruise is one Hot Scientological mess! His EGO brightens this flick to a Crest White Strips sheen. I hope he’s cast when the musical version hits Broadway! I just know he’d look good in a dress. Then when the musical is made back into a movie let us all pray to Xenu that John Travolta gets the lead.

  3. I found Valkyrie a let down. I did not take T.C seriously. I found him bland and ridiculous as an officer from the German side. He used his American accent which undermined the entire plot. It sounded stupid. I have never EVER watched a movie about Nazis that portrayed them with a US accent. It was ludicrous.

    All the actors used their normal accents. It felt like the integrity of the story was gone when they find that. If it were not for the uniform it would absurd to figure out who they were. Dialogue could help but the first sight of them has you wondering what the heck is going on. I know the original story thank goodness for this rendition smelled so badly it needed air.

    Oh, and Tom needs to go back to acting school. He stinks. All he did was walk around like a downer I am aware of the idea behind playing the officers down because of the mission and how they wished to be viewed, however, it was awful. It was obviously from a US perspective. Hey, I wonder if Singer will do another one and cast Hitler with blue jeans and a Hawaiian shirt. It would fit right in to the tone of this nightmare called Valkyrie. I cannot believe people liked it. It goes to show how little people actually know about good acting, and believable plots. At least make the accents real. What was he thinking? Yuck! I am glad I only rented it. I would never buy it. Yuck!

  4. A concatenation of cliches, stiltedly delivered–esp. by the king of the school of rigormortis-y acting, Tom Cruise. Stiff as the starch in a Scientologist’s SeaOrg button-down collar, Cruise is a hoot: so superserious hence silly. Poor the rest of the cast! Good Brits–Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, even Ken Branagh–wasted.

    As bad as “Defiance,” the recent too-good-to-be true Jews-in-the-woods travesty.

    Risible and sententious.

  5. I love WWII movies and was looking forward to this one. The supporting cast seemed to be worth the price of admission, but then I hadn’t figured on Tom Cruise’s performance being one of his worst. He is dreadfully miscast, although I’m sure concessions were made when he came on board. This is a boring, foolish movie: poor script, no direction and incredibly misused talent.

    Steer clear of Valkyrie and buy Downfall or Conspiracy or even Night of the Generals. There is no excuse for such poor film-making in this day and time.
