We gave it a B+

What is it with Tom Cruise and impossible missions? In Valkyrie, Bryan Singer’s artfully constructed (if slightly confusing) thriller, he portrays a real German officer who plotted to assassinate Hitler. Supported by a heavyweight cast (Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, and Tom Wilkinson), Cruise smolders with righteousness. If only his character could make a better bomb. EXTRAS A great making-of documentary and a commentary with a pleasantly chatty Cruise. B+
