Had Tom Cruise not already made a movie called A Few Good Men, the title of his latest project could easily have been A Few Good Nazis. This perfectly acceptable World War II thriller – telling the true story of an assassination attempt on Hitler in 1944 – features a moderately eff ective performance from its leading man. Cruise plays Colonel Claus von Stauff enberg, a maimed military offi cer who becomes both an enlightened architect and a reluctant linchpin of a plan to bomb Hitler’s provincial compound. Directed by Bryan Singer ( The Usual Suspects).
