Anyone else see it? We went a week or so ago and my wife and I really liked it. My brother was kind of indifferent about it. Honestly I was kind of surprised how much I liked it after seeing a good number of bad reviews for the movie. Most of the complaints seemed to be about the lack of action in the movie which I find strange. Given that the movie is about 1 single explosion I don't know what folks are expecting to see. Perhaps too many M.Bay movies have folks expecting explosions and chase scenes in every movie.
I didn't find Tom Cruise distracting in his lead role and actually thought he did a good job with it. There are a lot of good actors thrown in as well. Once again the bad guys (Nazi's) are played by British actors for the most part. The visuals are great and make me hope there is a DVD commentary that would cover how they recreated 1940's Germany. I'll admit that I didn't know anything about this attempt on Hitler's life before watching the movie beyond knowing someone tried to blow him up. The grand scale of the attempt and overthrowing of the Nazi party in Germany was impressive. I hope to follow this movie up with a good book covering the events.
I give it 2 thumbs up.
