German critics praise Cruise WWII movie
German critics have praised Tom Cruise’s World War Two movie Valkyrie, despite initial skepticisms about the film.
The actor was criticized by the German press when it was announced he would star in a movie about a German soldier who attempted to murder Hitler.
These initial concerns generally were dismissed after the press viewed the film.
“Valkyrie is neither scandalously bad nor the event of the century. Neither is it the action thriller we feared, but it is a well-made and serious film,” said ZDF.
While The Koelner Stadt Anzeiger said: “[The fear that] the myth of the German resistance would be put through a Hollywood filter has turned out to be wrong and prejudicial. On the contrary, the American origin of this film is its biggest advantage.”
