The Debt Reviews

Glenn Dunks
Trespass

Younger audiences will likely find The Debt too slow for their liking, but what it lacks in realistic casting it gains in meatily plotted espionage and weighty drama.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

What really dazzles here are the action beats - the getaway gone wrong, the shocking moments of violence.

Audiences will see a couple of intended surprises coming but the lack of surprise doesn't detract from how these moments affect the characters and serve the larger story.

Linda Cook
KWQC-TV (Iowa)

Spy stories can pack a powerful punch if the motive is right. And that is exactly the case in this well-wrought thriller based on 'Ha-Hov,' which opened the 2010 Jewish Film Series in the Quad-Cities. The American version is nearly as compelling.

There is enough tension to stay engaged for the full running time. That said, I'd skip through 'The Debt' if I ever caught it channel surfing.

At the Movies (Australia)

The moral dilemmas posed by events in the past impacting on the present are dealt with rather superficially, but THE DEBT is really solid entertainment.

A thriller with such powerful and emotive elements as The Debt towers above the everyday crime thriller, drawing on the cinematic oxygen of Nazi atrocities and their legacy

The result is a sturdy, often suspenseful piece, but one that delivers less than it promises.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...a movie scrubbed of subtlety, but it's not an ineffective or boring work, it's actually highly suspenseful - at times ridiculously tense.
