Critic Reviews of "Valkyrie"
Entertainment WeeklySeptember 07, 2011
Valkyrie, as field-commanded by director Bryan Singer, succeeds on its own terms as a handsome hybrid of conspiracy thriller and history lesson, of Mission: Impossible and The Day of the Jackal.
Time OutJanuary 23, 2009
As old-fashioned historical escapism goes, this is solid, compelling stuff.
Christian Science MonitorJanuary 05, 2009
Surely there is some middle ground between a history lesson and mindless action-adventure. The people who made Valkyrie not only didn't find that ground; they weren't even looking for it.
TIME MagazineDecember 30, 2008
It is a well-made film that raises timeless questions about the demands of military duty when they are placed in conflict with higher principles.
Denver PostDecember 30, 2008
What if this lesser-known chapter of German resistance had been more deeply captured? What if the moral conflicts running through this movie about love of country and revolt said more about Germany, war and, yes, genocide?
Dallas Morning NewsDecember 30, 2008
Singer keeps the conspiracy racing to its fated conclusion.

Valkyrie is another entry into Cruise's canon of quality films and performances.

Valkyrie isn't a classic war movie by any means, but is it the total laughing stock many feared? Nein.

Counterbalancing the energy vacuum that is Cruise is the good news that this is also a Bryan Singer movie.
ComingSoon.netMarch 10, 2011
As both a World War II film and a conspiracy story Valkyrie largely succeeds. No one part may stand above its fellows (not to mention other films) but what it adds up to is more than worthwhile and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Cruise, Singer, lose the credibility battle.
