Dumb Valkyrie pan

As I've noted before, Valkyrie has inspired some lamebrained reviews. Like one from New Zealand that says:

Their first attempt failed when the bomb did not go off. So, enter Cruise, playing Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, to do the job.

Quite why an American pretty boy, Botox-fresh in his facial lines, had to play this crucial role is not explained. Cruise looks like a boy doing a grizzly veteran’s job.

But Cruise really looks like Stauffenberg. And as for not being "grizzly" enough, Stauffenberg was 36, whereas Cruise is 46.

Most everything else in the review is stupid as well.
