The Debt


“The Debt” skillfully tells the story of three retired Mossad agents (played by Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson, and Ciaran Hindsby…and in their younger years by Jessica Chastain, Marton Csokas and Sam Worthington respectively) who worked together 30 years earlier to capture and bring to trial a notorious Nazi war criminal (the Surgeon of Birkenau) in a secret Israeli mission…the results of which have been passed down through time inaccurately.

Jessica Chastain (“The Help”) gives another excellent performance displaying her versatility and talent.

The story is strong but it lacks excitement and a true connection with the characters…so it makes it difficult to care about them.

Rated R (some violence and language)
1 hr. 44 min.
