Valkyrie 2008 120 PG-13 3.0 out of 5 ducks
Ending
Based on actual events and it's the summer of World War II. After losing an eye, hand and two other fingers, Col. von Stauffenberg is open to other options in seeing the end of the war, so when collaborators approach him to join their plan to assassinate Hitler and negotiate a surrender, he's cool with it. After a false start, von Stauffenberg contrives a plan to modify Hitler's plan, Operation Valkyrie, to be used in the process. (The original plan was Hitler's called for using the reserve army to defend the country in the event of a disruption of national security. In the modified plan, conspirators figured on invoking Valkyrie to arrest the SS and wrench security to leadership supportive of ending the war.) The second attempt of the group went better, and the bomb went off as von Stauffenberg and his assistant depart, and immediately begin calling the shots as though Hitler died. Unfortunately for the plan, Hitler survived (the bomb in the attaché case was placed in such a way that the heavy wood table absorbed the bulk of the blast). Hitler orders the arrest of the conspirators, who are all executed after summary court-martials. We close out with von Stauffenberg facing his executioners and dying on the ground, with memories of him bidding his wife and children goodbye as they fled to a safer place. (In end notes, we learn his wife lived until 2006, and nine months later, the Allies reached Berlin and Hitler committed suicide.) Moving film reel
