VALKYRIE (***1/2) was a slick and entertaining thriller with yet another solid lead performance from Tom Cruise. This is Bryan Singer's best film since THE USUAL SUSPECTS, though X-MEN 2 was quite good. Fantastic supporting cast. Great editing. A suspenseful score. Really enjoyed this film. Not a great or profound piece of work, but extremely well done in pretty much every department.

My full review will be up soon. I still have a bunch of reviews in the hopper so stay tuned.

I would give it ***, but a very high form of it. Definitely glossy and intense entertainment, and Tom Cruise was excellent, but it was pretty standard thriller fare, when you get right down to it. Still, strong stuff.
