We are returning this DVD I did ask that a replacement not be sent which was disregarded, we didnt like the half that we were able to watch, that is why we asked it not be replaced.
really engaging and enjoyable thriller. keeps you on the edge of your seat. chastain is brilliant.
Good movie. A bit of confusion at the outset which is cleared up later on. Makes you wonder how many so-called heroic deeds are in fact fabricated and built up to be something they're not.
This movie did it's job and was quiet entertaining, however I cannot help thinking that modern day Mossad Agents would think that our intrepid trio were somewhat soft
Not a brilliant movie, though engaging and interesting. Again a movie I saw a while ago, and don't recall the ending. Action drama based, chasing a Nazi who does not roll over when caught.
Isn't the Cold War getting a bit old hat now? As are Vietnam dramas... and soon to follow Iraq and Afghanistan films
Excellent film, great acting and story line. Really enjoyed it.
Quite disappointed - very high expectations because of the cast, the plot, the director. Plot had too many holes and the it just seemed to go far too long. Not as "riveting" as similarly themed movies.
Very good acting by wonderful cast. Great story . Well worth watching
I found this didn't quite work as well as it should, because the actors they selected to play young and older versions of the characters really didn't bear any resemblance to each other, so for a time, I had to keep catching up with who the characters were supposed to be. Otherwise, it was reasonably engaging and entertaining. Nothing extraordinary but worth a watch on a quiet night in.
Great story on the edge of your seat stuff
Another excellent film with Helen Mirren, a great acting role by her
great movie with good actors and I thought the flash-backs were done well
Loved This! Helen Mirren was fabulous as always but the story really gets you in. A good one for anyone who likes movies about WWII or intrigue.
Great movie. Love Helen Mirren
Two time frame pic about Mossad agents looking back on an assignment that went wrong. Solid performances, but not a patch on Spielberg's 'Munich'.
Movie was ingenious structurally but confusing at times. Also quite violent
Having read all the positive reviews, I'm not sure we all saw the same film. OK the story was reasonable and the acting passable but so slow and boring. I frequently liken films to watching paint dry but paint dries far quicker than the action in this film.
Great cast, well directed, a complicated but exciting plot. The strength of ‘The Debt’ is the believability of the characters, especially that played by Helen Mirren. While these are flawed people they engage us because we know their secret and, perversely, hope that they survive, at least that is how I reacted.
Not a bad movie, but TOO slow.............
Too bad he didnt pay earlier, good film.
I was very disappointed in this movie. There was nothing wrong with the acting and the ending was the best part.
Slow burning film about what Mossad get up to. Quite a good show.
slow at times but still quite entertaining you have be wide awake on this one else your miss the what it is all about
1965, three Mossad agents cross into East Berlin to apprehend a notorious Nazi war criminal. Thirty years later, the secrets the agents share come back to haunt them. Outstanding film. Jesper Christensen's portrayal as the evil Vogel is so convincing that he steals the movie in my opinion. Sam Worthington is fighting well above his weight. Wooden, poor accent and one dimensional. I am amazed that this bloke gets gigs .........apart from that this is a wonderful spy movie
Although you get the sense there is a far superior lurking somewhere on the cutting room floor, there's plenty to keep you interested throughout this slickly made spy thriller. Mirren and Wilkinson are excellent as always, while Sam Worthington demonstrates yet again why he is heir apparent to the Keanu Reeves "I Can't Really Act, But At Least I Look Handsome" award. I'm not sure whether Sam's dialect coach just gave up or had some sort of nervous breakdown, but his accent (a weird Aussie/German via Hogan's Heroes/MIddle East hybrid) is the most engaging part of his performance. Worthington aside, The Debt is well worth a watch.
Extremely well made and well acted (Sam Worthington the exception). Worth a look.
I loved this movie. It is dark and fairly violent but the twists and turns keep you on the edge of you seat to the end.
Why is retribution so important to most humans? Mossad is probably still hunting secound world war "criminals" now. This film shows their no holds barred attitude. Great acting.
My husband, my sister and I loved this movie. The story line was great, the acting was excellent. We were kept intrigued and captivated from the beginning to end. Highly recommended.
Really enjoyed this movie. Great story line. Beautifully filmed. Would watch it again!
the movie had a good story and held your interest the whole way through.
Didn't watch it all. It seemed quite aloof and I didn't care about the characters or the plot.
Loved this movie, mind you anything with Helen Mirren is FAB!!!
Interesting enough to watch but not brilliant.
I really enjoyed The Debt. Interesting plot, well-written (by the guy who wrote Kick-Ass and X-Men First Class). Great cast. Intriguing characters. And that Sam Worthington is a bit of a spunk.
The movie was excellent, the performances by the lead actors top class. Enjoyed it very muchn
fairly entertaining but I couldnt feel much sympathy for the characters
unsure when it first started. but enjoyed as the movie got into it
I too found the movie very confusing, it changed timelines too often and it was hard to get a hadle on the characters. I like Helen Mirren and that was the reason I picked The Debt, unfortunately I was very disappointed. The fact that you know from the start what the ending will be, albeit a slight variation, it really was disappointed.
Too much time and confusion is involved in establishing the story and jumping back and forth in time. Once the story actually gets going, the realisation comes - as in many a good movie - that things aren't quite what they seemed. It's worth staying with as the pieces fall into place.
