This is a difficult movie to classify as it doesn't really fit into the normal tidy genre pigeon holes; it's not action though there's a fair amount of violence and plenty of tension, it's not really a thriller but there a smattering of intrigue and it's not a romance despite a certain amount of personal entanglement. It, however, definitely is not a comedy. The story focuses on the current life of three principle characters and their actions thirty years previously as Mossad Nazi hunters. The action cuts back and forth slickly between these two time periods as the capture of an infamous concentration camp `doctor' is planned and executed. The pace and tension are carefully managed to draw you into the lives of the protagonists as the lie that has been gnawing at their consciences but that has shaped their lives is gradually revealed. The cast are superb, and the assured direction & cinematography make for an absorbing and gripping experience. The ending is slightly predictable but is left nicely open ended - not very tidy but thought provoking nonetheless.

A slick, unusual, well-paced thriller with a strong cast, played across time with interesting moral implications

Very disappointing. Best described as a film about 3 totally inept agents who screw up and only have to deal with the consequences 30 years later. The plot is not inconceivable and the idea interesting, but given that it's based on the three main characters ineptitude and lies it needs something to make the viewer interested in the what happens to them. Unfortunately Nothing about the film invoked me to care one iota for anything that happened to anyone in the film. An absolute waste of Helen Mirren's undeniable talent.

BBC showed The Debt later at night and then did not offer it on iPlayer. I missed most of it and was keen to see the whole film. This DVD - here paired with Red (a great romp) - is well worth the money asked

Helen Mirren is great as usual showing how the Jews and Germans got along during the war

Excellent thriller, both Jessica Chastain and Helen Mirren are on top form.
