Popspotting #121: “The Debt” (Sept. 5, 2011)
“The Debt” was a film festival hit last year, and was scheduled for a December 2010 release. But studio shenanigans delayed its debut until last week. But even though it hit theaters in the doldrums of late summer, it is a solid espionage thriller. Hear our Labor Day take, which adds up to a Popspotting score of 8 out of 10.
Even the best secret agents carry a debt from a past mission. Filmed on location in Tel Aviv, the U. روبرت ليفاندوفسكى K., and Budapest, “The Debt”Â stars Helen Mirren and Jessica Chastain as Rachel, Tom Wilkinson andÂ Marton Csokas as Stefan, andÂ CiarÃ¡n Hinds andÂ Sam Worthington as David. بيت 365 All three face off against Nazi war criminal Dieter Vogel, played by Jesper Christensen.
The film is directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden (“Shakespeare in Love”), and the screenplay is by Matthew Vaughn, Jane Goldman, and Peter Straughan. It’s adapted from the 2007 Israeli film “Ha Hov” (The Debt).

I pretty much have to agree with your guys’ assessment of The Debt. Thought it was a pretty solid film and one of the high points in a somewhat dismal late summer. The Rachel combo of Helen Mirren and Jessica Chastain was definitely the outstanding performance of the film. And I agree with Jen on Sam Worthington, I didn’t really feel him in this role and hisÂ AustralianÂ accent took me out of the film a few times. Definitely worth the time to check out in the theaters with some good suspense and action scenes.
