Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The Debt functions both as an edge-of-the-seat thriller and an effective drama about the sometimes passionate, sometimes contentious relationships among the three main characters.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average That's intriguing for us, because "The Debt" does a splendid job of showing key early sequences in detail. To see is to believe. But we might not be seeing everything.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 112 moviegoers:
TEENS:None
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:GREAT REVIEWS from the males and the one female. Most loved "The Debt" with just one male rating it as low as average.
ADULTS:Close to half loved it with most of the rest indicating they enjoyed it very much. There were, however, several who only felt it was an average movie. I would say these are Very Good reviews but not great reviews. Since nearly everyone would recommend this movie, your probability of enjoying it is high.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The story begins in 1997, as shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel (Helen Mirren) and Stephan (Tom Wilkinson) about their former colleague David (Ciarán Hinds). All three have been venerated for decades by Israel because of the secret mission that they embarked on for their country back in 1965-1966, when the trio (Jessica Chastain, Marton Csokas, and Sam Worthington tracked down Nazi war criminal Dieter Vogel (Jesper Christensen), the feared Surgeon of Birkenau, in East Berlin. While Rachel found herself grappling with romantic feelings during the mission, the net around Vogel was tightened by using her as bait.

At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team's mission was accomplished - or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations that compel Rachel to take matters into her own hands.
