If the Directors/Producers of VALKYRIE had run Germany during WW2, the
Allies would have won in about a month. The movie is quite a mess.
Even good performances by Bill Nighy & Tom Wilkinson can't save it.
Tom Cruise just doesn't sell as a wounded war hero. The whole thing is
overwrought. More melodrama than drama. And what is withe the accents?
British, American, Geman. I had no idea Nazi Germany was such a
melting pot. If you want a good movie about this plot see Night of
the Generals. At least O'Toole did a German accent! — Alan Yudman
