Helen Mirren, Jessica Chastain and Sam Worthington star in this thriller about three Israeli Mossad agents on a 1965 mission to capture a notorious Nazi war criminal. Thirty years later, secrets about the case emerge.

Between this and Munich, it feels like Hollywood sees a lot of storytelling opportunities about the Mossad whilst not yet feeling comfortable signing off on their actions, which is a good thing except in this case the characters' motivations mixed with the attempt at brutal realism behind their mistakes makes for a messy and mostly unsatisfying result: what has been gained? --PolarisDiB
Severely underrated espionage thriller. Taut, perfectly paced, beautifully shot and wonderfully acted across the board by two generations of Hollywood's top talents; easily one of my favorite Mirren roles.
It's not a great film, but it is certainly a good film. The Berlin section is wonderful, with Jessica Chastain again proving she's the one to watch right now. Madden's directing is more even and sharper then most of his previous films, and it's only towards the end that he looses the great momentum and rhytm that he achieves with the rest of the film. Newman's score is great, so is Davies' cinematography!
LOL duh I was going to see this hello!!! I would have preferred a VERY different ending but the movie is very good. Definitely gripping and surprising. I thought David and Rachel's character broke to easily in response to the nazi mind games (they'd be way tougher than that if they were sent on this mission.) Gynecologist scene was SO KILLER! Chastain is absolutely awesome.
A solid cast and a few great scenes, but its not enough. The older cast is stuck with a great deal of boring moments, and the final moments of the film seem to lose touch with the rest of the film. A disappointment.
Debt is for those who love the Nazi hunter movies.... It is a fictional narrative and so can go one level deeper than actual facts.... is a remake of an earlier Israeli movie.... I think it is ok movie with good performances....
