I saw Valkyrie


This film is about an elaborate plot to assasinate Adolf Hitler in the summer of 1944. A disgruntled Colonel Stuaffenberg, played by Tom Cruise attempts the assasination at the Wolf's Lair Nazi bunker. The plan is to reinstate the Chancellor after the coup and deploy the Reserve Army to crush the SS and secure Berlin.

The movie is exciting and there are some excellent scenes of Hitler's inner circle. There is a great scene with Hitler, Joseph Goebbles, Heinrich Himmler, and Hermann Goring laughing and joking at the Eagles Nest.
