The film, which is impressive. Mesmerizing. Not to let the very end. And even after...

Tense Thriller with a superbly chosen cast and team in a whole. It and That Cruz, which demonstrated there is a real benefit. It and Kenneth Branagh, actor and Director, who directed the most famous film version of "Frankenstein". It and Thomas Kretschmann, who has, if I don't mistake in the seventh playing German officers. Despite this, decent for his role, he it did it flawlessly.

Directing... Oh, she gorgeous! Suspense is injected correctly so that nilly, I think: all can work? Every minute in this movie you worried about favorite characters with real historical prototypes. This movie makes you think, to experience, to feel.

This film — undoubtedly the best creation of the singer, which proved that could not remove just fantastic fighters, but  & thrillers about the Second world war. This film is full of beautifully written in a script quotes, like: "Soon the portraits of this person will be removed and will hang him", or"to Serve the needs of Germany, and not Hitler."

Particularly important in the film is emotions, when you sitting on the edge of your seat and waiting. Waiting for the inevitable. Tragic end, when it was nothing change,

For me, the scenes of violence on the war, worse than any horror movie, because — you know that it was on really. When the characters in the queue are shot, you can't put screen as not wanted this, your heart is pounding out of my chest. Despite that know the history of people understand what it's all over, all care how never. So that is a great Thriller. I suggest you see it all fans of cruise, historical films, yeah and just a good movie. A movie that remains in memory for a long time. So well as and the last words of cruise's character background Stauffenberg.

students and curve — king

Black-and-white chronicle
Earlier I saw the film adaptation of this event was shot in the countries of the Eastern bloc in the Cold war — they reflect our look at the story. Yes not was the Central event — in the best case, one series of in long story about three tankers (characters but not less worthy).

Perhaps this is the version can lay claim to objectivity, considered in any detail. Key characters also appear in "anatomical cut", thanks to the excellent acting.

Final, as reality
Known the ending does not spoil the film, on the contrary it is interesting to understand the chain of events, to see the faces of the heroes to defeat. A similar story is described in  the"Day of the Jackal" — the killer must eliminate General de Gaulle, but he is doomed to failure in history.

However, the characters themselves understand the final ending of the war, and try it change.

Let the world know that not all we are
The truth about the Germans, trapped in tough conditions, we should be clear. They stand not crazy or maniacs. There is a place of indecision, and rejection of words, the desire to be on the right side. But has the same bravery before the enemy as not less terrible.
They are similar to us.

Hitler himself came to power through the Beer hall Putsch, not have lost their skills and acquired new expertise for 14 previous lessons. He made people only look at it blinded them. Starting its way, the Germans had to act without looking back, otherwise could fall under the influence of hypnosis.

Ride of the Valkyries is perfect soundtrack film.

Before the release of "Operation "Valkyrie"" was held an interesting event from PR-technologists: on many Internet resources and media has been involved in the image, where the profile was a picture of the real Colonel Klaus von Stauffenberg and which the film Tom cruise — similarity what they say, it on the face. Interest has been awakened, it is always interesting to witness a real historical persons and if one the main "stars" of Hollywood and even like this person it will play — this is a major boost to the campaign in a cinema.

We should not forget about another point relating to the creation of "Operation "Valkyrie"" - the producer of the tape was appointed Bryan singer, which much alarmed the public, cruisetravel the first two parts of the comic hit "X-Men". In the talent and professionalism of this filmmaker is not had to doubt, and when he trying a new path — military-historical drama — it sounds like an additional incentive for watching the movie.

So, I understood why "Operation "Valkyrie"" caused quite a hype around its premiere and now goes to seen. On the screen we will present a tense atmosphere, where there is a war, Germany's defeat and around the main initiator of the bloodiest massacre in the history of mankind, Adolf Hitler starts to curl a web of intrigue, resulting in the real conspiracy. Not be this case large-scale battle scenes — not the story is directed. We will subcutaneously to feel the whistling of bullets and exploding bombs, but frame with these moments will be the minimum. Bryan singer and writers coolly converted all our attention on the main character in performance Tom cruise. They will try to draw in its the nature of the will of steel of a brave man who went against it would seem the all-powerful dictator, the most reproducing in his person the thoughts of the majority of Germans — from soldiers to the common people. We see the drama of its fall, but this man is not requires his pity, he showed how to be a real hero.

Of course, all the reference to the character of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg not out if they are not would show is so reliable Tom cruise. I admit that I had my doubts about him. I had no doubt in his talent, but we used he is sort of handsome, darling of women who he wasn't — whether the spy, then if the seducer. My doubts gone into first moments of the film, when the desert his party would be attacked and in this attack the hero Cruz will be crippled. When he lies the hot sand in his eyes you can see so much pain, but not for themselves, and this war, the loss of life. This must be the one who will be able to strike the final blow. Tom cruise, as always gave no reason to criticize, playing on high scores.

But I would like to add that and a few other actors have successfully coped with their roles. Good Tom Wilkinson — from look askance cold held at the skin; very tactile person came from Wilkinson. With cold eyes meets us movie bill Nighy, but he plays so that becomes clear that his character is not always goes to the end, he continually doubts him not enough determination. It is required contrast to hero Tom cruise we understand because of the nature of the latter. And I especially want to mention Christian Berkel. Clearly a hero, a man with a big heart and a real soldier, even hostile to us army. Completing the SIM, conclude that environment Tom cruise were simply brilliant and the role played in compliance with characters, carefully and clearly.

"Operation "Valkyrie"" is a serious art creation, where we are shown the Germans during the Second world war, not as monsters, and show that not all supported the ideas of the national socialists. The film is characterized by the word "Fortress" as its main character. Good military-historical drama.
