John DeFore, Washington Post:

The Debt grasps the viewer pretty firmly, delivering thrills without trivializing the moral quandaries that set it in motion.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times:

The architecture of The Debt has an unfortunate flaw. The younger versions of the characters have scenes that are intrinsically more exciting, but the actors playing the older versions are more interesting.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe:

The film’s a potboiler but a gripping one, and it leaves you chewing on both its nuances and implausibilities.

A.O. Scott, The New York Times:

It probes, with perhaps more energy than clarity, the ethical and psychological complications that can lie hidden beneath a story of simple heroism.

If you aren't going away for Labor Day weekend, then this seems like a pretty solid movie night option to stir up some conversation. Take a look-see at The Debt trailer here:
