Bryan Singer is back with this latest Tom Cruise starring vehicle based on a true story of the German military and politicians plotting to assassinate Adolph Hitler. Tom and his British supporting cast do excellent jobs of portraying sympathetic Germans but the lack of German accents seems out of place. The action and plotting do offset this linguistic misstep and does keep the viewer engaged until the demise. With Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Terrance Stamp and Eddie Izzard as your fellow conspirators, what English actors where left to cast in this film? A good film and a refreshing reprieve to see Germans opposed to Nazism, the SS and Hitler who try to save their homeland from itself.
