A scheme to assassinate Adolf Hitler, hatched by some of those within his own party, fuels director Bryan Singer's compelling drama.
As unlikely as producer and star Tom Cruise might seem as the leader of the plot wearing an eye patch, no less he does a credible job and surrounds himself with expert co-stars including Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp, Bill Nighy and Eddie Izzard. Singer reunites with co-writer Christopher McQuarrie, who won an Oscar for his script for "The Usual Suspects."
DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Cruise, Singer, McQuarrie and co-writer Nathan Alexander. digital copy of the movie. *** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
