Valkyrie

Rock! Shock! Pop!
20 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Bryan Singer’s first attempt at a ‘based on a true story’ picture is, to coin a term, pretty vacant. It looks nice, the acting is strong, and it’s entertaining enough but it isn’t deep. In fact, for a film that deals with such interesting subject matter as this one does, it’s remarkably shallow.

  • Excerpt: On July 20, 1944, three years of planning, second-guessing and false starts by the German Resistance--composed largely of officers in the German Army--came to a head when a bomb planted by Colonel Count Claus von Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise) exploded feet away from Adolf Hitler.

Valkyrie

High-Def Digest
18 June 2009
  • Conclusion: 'Valkyrie' is helmed by a visionary director, stars one of the biggest names in Hollywood, and tells the amazing true story of quite possibly the greatest conspiracy in the history of mankind. Despite these facts, however, the film just doesn't cohere very well, and in the end, it lacks the spark necessary to transform mediocrity into something truly memorable. The Blu-ray looks sharp, and even with the soft dialogue, the audio isn't so bad, either.

Valkyrie Review

DoBlu
21 May 2009
  • Excerpt: There is an issue of casting in Valkyrie , that of convincing a wide audience Tom Cruise is a German Nazi officer. No one can possibly believe the actor would fit into the role, and to be perfectly honest, he doesn’t. That is part of the reason the first half of the film fails. The assassination plot of Hitler being taken down from inside his own ranks is slowly brewing, and tension is limited.

Valkyrie Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
20 May 2009
  • Conclusion: I'd hate to have anyone read this review and think Valkyrie is a complete waste of time. There are many entertaining elements in the film, and the subject matter is a great basis for a Hollywood production. Unfortunately, the film exhibits a little too much "Hollywood" and not enough heart. Had the filmmakers extended Valkyrie into three hours, and included a sufficient set-up, I may have found more value in the experience.
