Re: Sam Worthington's THE DEBT trailer

I'll watch it, if for no other reason than to see Ciaran Hinds at his craft. He's fantastic.

Though actually the films looks interesting on it's own and has quite a bit of talent in the cast.

But when I saw Ciaran, I was sold..

Humm. Seems like the past or the present are both interesting, but I don't know about flipping back and forth.

Intriguing. It looks like they're trying something different other than your average cookie cutter thriller. For that reason alone, I'll see it.

This movie - THE DEBT (2010) - seems to be a remake of a 2007 Israeli film also called THE DEBT aka HA-HOV. The original Israeli version looks to be airing tonight - Thursday, October 21st at 6:45pm - on the Sundance Channel here in the U.S.. A repeat airing is slated for early tomorrow morning at 5:45am.

Here's the youtube trailer for the Israeli original version:

Comes out 8/31...I'm skeptical, but will give it a chance. Only 3 reviews so far on RT, 2 positive.

damn it, missed this announcement last year as well as the recent Avalon theater showing of the original. As for the remake I thought it was excellent. My major gripe is that the young Stefan (played by Marton Csokas) looks NOTHING like the older version (played by Tom Wilkinson) - it was visually a major distraction.

Re: Sam Worthington's THE DEBT trailer

Soooooo I saw it today. Deep down...I really liked it. Like the post above mine...the differences in Stefan were a big distraction. Older David looked more like like the younger Stefan. THOUGH..Wilkinson and Csokas were really good at being the same person at different times in their lives.

Anyway...Mirren did good. The younger cast were really good at selling that story. Wasn't an amazing movie but pretty entertaining and well made. The whole Nazi hunt tale was really well done. Was pretty happy w/ the attack on one of the characters. My main gripe is the ending. I'm not sure if I liked it or not, just felt semi lacking to me...I don't know why. Also it made me think about what would the ramifications be on another female character. I didn't expect to see what Mirren's character went through at the end, that was I guess somewhat refreshing. Minor gripes aside...I'd say it's worth a watch and entertaining at that. I'd like to see the original Israeli flick cuz from that trailer link given...seems like this version had more exciting camerawork than the Israeli one.

thanks, I noted this this evening on RCN On Demand via Sundance on demand - excellent film. The original movie really streamlines the story a lot.

Re: Sam Worthington's THE DEBT trailer

Set in the late 1990s, 30 years ago, a trio of Mossad spies set out to track down a Nazi war criminal. After capturing their prey, something happens, and the war criminal escapes, but the spies decide to cover up the escape, and take credit for the apprehension and disposal of the war criminal. After spending all those decades celebrating their story, word of the war criminal's whereabouts surface, and the 3 spies must confront their past, and deal with the problem head-on as a journalist is on the trail of a story that could unravel everything for the trio.

Both sets of actors for the present day, and for their younger selves give solid performances, and the direction was good, but the last 20 minutes felt a little suspect, though it was nice to see some spy skills never leave you even after 3 decades. I would suggest that Sam Worthington not attempt to do accents because he just not all that convincing when doing them.

I give it 2.75 stars, or a grade of B-.

Re: Sam Worthington's THE DEBT trailer

I really enjoyed the heck out this movie. The storytelling was tight and the acting was very good. I keep reading about plot holes and such, but I was not bothered by any of it because the movie was just completely entertaining from start to finish (the twist took me by surprise). I also didn't have that hard a time with the casting. It's pretty obvious who is supposed to be who so whether the actors looked a like or not did not bother me one bit. Also, I was quite surprised how long the story focused on the younger roles seeing as they got Helen Mirren to star as the present day female lead.

The only thing that disappointed me was the extremely limited screen time of Ciarán Hinds. Ugh. Between this and his cameo in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - I am wondering if he is ever going to get a meaty supporting role in a major film anytime soon. He deserves it! Sucks that he has to take on roles in films like Ghost Rider to pay the bills.

I'll probably check out the original film sometime soon.
