    A solid, exciting thriller about Jews kicking ass (anyone remember that piece of dialogue from Knocked Up?). Overall, solid performances, especially from Jessica Chastain and Helen Mirren.

    John Madden demostró su versatilidad con este competente remake de una cinta israelí. Los fans de Helen Mirren pueden quedar algo decepcionados porque su personaje es fundamentalmente interpretado por una Jessica Chastain a la que algunos descubrimos gracias a este papel.

    No deja un poso indeleble pero sí garantiza el buen rato.

    Estrenada en España con un extraño retraso, llegó a los cines el mismo fin de semana que La piel que habito (Pedro Almodóvar, 2011), con la que comparte un curioso momento de tensión a costa del afeitado de una persona secuestrada…

    Slighter than I felt it should be. Still, an afternoon watching Helen Mirren is never wasted.

    When a synopsis says that a movie is about Mossad agents hunting down Nazi war criminals, it’s not unreasonable to expect a thriller. While this would have undoubtedly been awesome, I was pleasantly surprised that The Debt breaks this high-concept down into a character drama. Instead of seeing Nazi after Nazi get killed (again, this would have been awesome), the film smartly centers on the hunt for just one particularly heinous individual and the complications that occur once he is…

    Should have a better development of the end. Otherwise, the movie is awesome!

    Historia de espías clasicota, bien contada (el guión adaptado de la original israelí es de Matthew Vaughn), con un buen reparto (hasta el soso de San Wortington está bien) y con los giros bien puestos. Se ve muy bien.

    Pd: Jessica Chastain es amor puro.

    A good thriller. Good direction, good acting, & a good script.
    It's just not great. It lacks a certain spark.

    Although they might have wished for something less conventional, it's the thrills that make The Debt.

    “The Debt” is based on the Israeli movie “Ha-Hov” from 2007. Three Mossad agents try to capture a Nazi doctor. Their mission didn’t go according to plan. The decision they make will haunt them when they’re older. They are seen as heroes in their country, but do they really deserve that?

    The heart of the film is formed by a flashback from 1965, where Rachel, Stephan and David are send to East Berlin. Their task is to find doctor Bernhardt,…

    „Nur vier Menschen wissen, was hier passiert ist. Die Wahrheit verlässt diesen Raum nicht. Es bleibt unter uns.“ Die Üblichen Verdächtigen sind mit diesem anspruchsvollen Politthriller sehr zufrieden – im Podcast reden sie über Helen Mirren und Elisabeth Chastain, gelungene Zeitsprünge, klaustrophobische Kammerspielmomente und diskutieren über die Auflösung am Schluss. schoener-denken.de/blog/the-debt-eine-offene-rechnung-ein-kammerspiel-von-schuld-und-wahrheit/
