The inconsistent pacing of this film can be forgiven because of the powerhouse acting that portrays an intriguing story of truth and redemption. The film portrays an interesting era of history and does well at maintaining its slow burn plot and moralistic themes.

A failed mission to capture a surgeon murderer forced three individuals to lie about it. Now that they take credit of it for thirty years, they now have to deal with it- which happens differently for the three of them. *** I was a bit hesitant watching this drama-thriller, but five minutes in, and I was hooked. Everything is a mystery on the most part of the film, but stellar acting by Helen Mirren showed story without saying everything. The story is incredibly written on every side: the mission; the drama back home; and even the fall-short romance between the three leads. Smooth drama-thriller production-wise, story-wise, and acting-wise.

This movie has plot twists, character development, and some weird/gruesome doctor/patient scenes. All and all, a pretty good movie.

A strong thriller that's well-cast and written. 3 Israeli agents embark on a secret mission to capture and deliver a Nazi war criminal but things don't go as planned. The decisions the agents make turn out to affect the rest of their lives, as we rejoin their story many years later to see how what they've done has impacted their future. Good direction from John Madden and great turns from all of the cast members make this a good watch.

Rachel Singer (Jessica Chastain) lands in East Berlin to meet fellow agents David Peretz (Sam Worthington) and Stefan Gold (Marton Csokas). Their mission is to detain Nazi war criminal Dieter Vogel (Jesper Christensen). He escapes and the three made a pact to keep it a secret that their mission failed. The characters were not revealed in detail so the plot tends to be confusing in the beginning. Score was applicable and artists give wonderful portrayals of their characters. Overall, The Debt’s story was plain; action was fast paced and well acted despite its complicated structure.

Rating of

A standard, somewhat tense thriller. It takes some interesting turns and never bores, but it still feels like it could've been more.
