      Who would think that of all possible assassins, a little-know American actor Tom Cruise would gain admittance into the bunker complex and plant a bomb there, almost changing the course of history.

        I don't what the heck is important about actor being scientologist.
        I mean,it's a film about something happened 66 years ago.

        Now,his life today is already other story,however film getting critics for scientology is nonsense although I have to admit that my contacts with them are non existent,and my knowledge is limited,it's still a thing of choice
        It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.

          If I were German, I'd be furious (much as I was by Mel Gibson's portrayal of Sir William Wallace) Von Stauffenberg is a national hero in Germany and having him played by a pint-sized Yank twonk must've been galling.

            Oh, come on. Tom Cruise was 'Maverick' om Top Gun. He could play an authentic German hero.

              There is plenty of german actors too hire or at least Hollywood American actors with german decent that can speak fluet German,and yet, they pick Tom Cruise.

              THE Movie was about a past History,its a shame that the main actor never match it.
              you talking about BraveHeart? They should have use a scotsman,they never get the nationalitys right,ever!

              I had a peek at those images,very good fine indeed,but just were does Sniper find all this,it takes me a while too find something worth posting.

                So far,aside from the interesting link,
                being able to use the word "twonk"
                in casual conversation brings me the
                core value of this thread.
                For this I thank the ace.

                  Nothing heroic about the lot. July 44 the writing was on the wall for all to see. They were going to lose. IF this had taken place in 43 then they would have my praise.

                    There is plenty of german actors
                    Really? I must have missed something. Who would you suggest? Otto or perhaps Thomas Gottschalk

                      you know full well its only because Mel Gibson hates us Southern Shandy drinkers (You know the ones with a functioning liver). You should make him an honorary Scott (Nearly said something else there ).

                      To be fair to the producers of Valkyrie, Tom Cruise Does look quite a bit like Von Staffenberg, in fact most of the actors seem to have been picked for their likeness to the Germans involved.
