During World War II, a team of Nazi officers comes up with a plan to assassinate Hitler and destroy the Nazi rule by using Operation Valkyrie as a means to do so.

Director: Bryan Singer

Screenwriters: Christopher McQuarrie, Nathan Alexander

Stars: Tom Cruise, Carice van Houten, Kenneth Branagh

Given the subject matter, Valkyrie could have been an outstanding historical thriller, but settles for being a mildly entertaining, but disposable yarn.
