Great movie and thank god for IMDb!
First, I want to say that some time ago I learned to distrust critics and instead read the reviews here on IMDb. I’ve never been misled, even when an equal number of viewers liked and disliked the same movie because that let me know there was a matter of taste in play, and that’s fine. Sometimes a movie pleases everyone, but that’s so rare I cant really think of one. People have different tastes and that’s good. But the value of IMDb reviews is that they are based on a genuine response to the movie – not a bias, or some other agenda.
For example, the Fox critic Roger Friedman listed this movie as one of the worst of 2008 – without having seen the movie. That’s right. He rated it without seeing it. It was a classic and reprehensible case of bias and perhaps even bigotry since he was engaging in Tom Cruise bashing which is usually practiced in conjunction with dissing Tom’s religion.
So I don’t trust critics to tell the truth or give an unbiased review.
I saw Valkyrie and enjoyed it immensely. I’ve studied the Hitler period and was familiar with most of the events but the movie educated me while it thrilled and entertained me. It is a movie I was happy to take my teen-aged children to see because it also educated and entertained them. I thought the cast did a great job. The script was outstanding and the direction excellent. Tom Cruise gave a dimension to Von Stauffenberg that deepened my understanding of the events. The supporting cast were brilliant.
I highly recommend it.
PS. It’s some time since I wrote this review and I took thirty minutes tonight to read the other reviews on this movie, not surprisingly they are mostly very positive and unanimous in praising it. Interestingly, the critics, including the one named above, who trashed the movie without even seeing it, obviously did so in an effort to kill it at the box office. While many other reviewers noted this too, I’d like to point out that those critics and possibly some of the people who ‘dont like Tom Cruise because of his weird religion’ are actually following the same path that made it possible for Hitler to kill off millions of Jews who also had a ‘weird religion’. Considering the historical background of Valkyrie I find that quite ironical.
