(2008) 60% (%) 76) http://movies.nytimes.com/2008/12/25/movies/25valk.html * * * * "See my profile for the key to this code" * * * * SYNOPSIS: "One of historys more enigmatic players was Claus von Stauffenberg, a count and a colonel who, though he lost one eye, an entire hand and several fingers while fighting on behalf of the Reich, made several attempts to assassinate Hitler and seize control of the government. At the core of Stauffenberg's spectacularly ambitious plot was Valkyrie, Hitlers plan for the mobilization of the home army that Stauffenberg hoped to hijack in order to quash the SS and its leaders. CONSENSUS: "Given the subject matter, "Valkyrie" could have been an outstanding historical thriller, but settles for being a mildly entertaining, but disposable yarn." MOTIVATION FOR ME TO SEE: I guess I want to compare Tom's performance to the History Channel's take on the subject, and the doc "Operation Valkyrie: the Stauffenberg plot to kill Hitler" (2008) that I saw a few months ago.

Being totally sick of holocaust guilt trips I chose to skip this depressing film.
