Tom Cruise... the Good Nazi
There was some hype about the shooting of the film "Valkyrie" last summer when Tom Cruise and the Hollywood types invaded various German towns to film the true story of the attempted assassination of Hitler - Operation Valkyrie - by members of his own staff during the Second World War.
Cruise portrays Claus Von Stauffenberg, the mastermind behind the attempt on Hitler's life.
Well, the first theatrical preview of the film has just reached the Internet. In my opinion, it looks a little ham-fisted in the dialogue department and there's nary a German accent to be found. Also, no mention of the "Jewish Question" or the Holocaust in this particular trailer. Still, it could be an interesting flic.
What do you think? Have a look.
