WED­NES­DAY VALKYRIE

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

7FLIX, 10.40PM 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 ef­fec­tive per­for­mance from its lead­ing man. Cruise plays Colonel Claus von Stauf­fen­berg, a maimed mil­i­tary of­fi­cer 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).
