The direction and performances remain as solid as ever, but they're both growing obscured by the top-heavy plot.

The Debt is 75% of a good thriller. Unfortunately, the ending is a typical American, tie everything up in a bow ending. The effect is to somewhat blur the moral quandary at the heart of the plot. Also in typical Hollywood fashion, the ending relies on a coincidence that strains credulity. See the movie for the acting, the taut direction, the suspence. But prepare to leave somewhat deflated.
