Valkyrie is a historical film which dramatizes the  20th July plot in 1944 by German army officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler and subsequently replace the Nazi regime.

Tom Cruise stars as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, a Nazi officer who loses his right hand and left eye after being severely wounded during an RAF air raid. After becoming disillusioned with the Nazi party, he joins the German Resistance, and along with his co-conspirators, hatches a plot to assassinate the Nazi High Command and take control of Germany.

Valkyrie is a dark film with a compelling storyline, and brings out the patriotism which drove a group of brave men into the face of danger.
