The secret is only the beginning
Rachel Singer is a former Mossad agent who endeavored to capture and bring to trial a notorious Nazi war criminal-the Surgeon of Birkenau-in a secret Israeli mission that ended with his death on the streets of East Berlin. Now, 30 years later, a man claiming to be the doctor has surfaced, and Rachel must go back to Eastern Europe to uncover the truth. Overwhelmed by haunting memories of her younger self and her two fellow agents, the still-celebrated heroine must relive the trauma of those events and confront the debt she has incurred.

Excellent acting, direction and story. There was no surprise in Ms. Mirren but the young lady from the HELP impressed me and caught me off guard. Well done. It was sad but well done.

The inconsistency of Worthington's accent is a bit distracting, but Wilkinson, Mirren, & Csokas deliver excellent performances, and Hinds is heart-breaking as the elder "David." More than anything, though, I'm curious to see the original Israeli film, Ha Hov, upon which The Debt is based.

Good movie, boring at some parts but good overall.
