Secret Germany and the 20 July 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler get the '24' treatment in Singer's engaging new thriller. Months before the end of World War II, Colonel von Stauffenberg (Cruise) became the driving force behind an attempted coup. A big cast caper flick, 'Valkyrie' does drag in places but it is never less than perversely winsome.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
