Its a movie that almost had a promising result, I was hoping for this movie to have a sense of a twisted plot or some kind of wired and unexpected or a climatic end. But to the fact that to no surprise to my point of view it was like watching a documentary film about to when they first discovered the epidemic S.A.R.S. or the first discovery dengue, so literary the film is just about an unknown disease to where this group of people steps in and tried to help find a vaccine or cure to fight the disease. In short its about a unknown virus that has no cure, then a group of scientist finds a cure to isolate and get rid of the virus for good. Even though they made the film categorized in the genre of drama the story is just the same to those documentary film on about to what to do to fight a unknown disease or an epidemic, so if your the type of person who watches documentaries or reads this kinds of epidemic outbreak you might find this movie a bit boring for your taste. Same as me to what I experience watching this film. There is just nothing new to see in the movie, like I said earlier its just like what you see in a documentaries film that is seen on TV, the differences is that this one is based with a story but the plot is just almost the same with some dramatic effects added to the movie to make it seem a bit sad. 2.1 / 5

The Debt

The movie was no where close to being in the drama genre for most of the time the story was more based on detective work genre, but one thing is right and its the suspense thriller for time to time there are partial scene, where a sudden laud opening of doors or sudden cut scene to someone lighting a cigar. The story starts to one of the agent Rachel Singer(Helen Mirren), who apperently her Daughter Sarah Gold (Romi Aboulafia) is publishing a book to what happen in one of Rachel assignment back the day when she was still an agent. The trouble is this one specific assignment the her daughter had publish was not all true, Thier failed Mission to target Former Gen Dieter Vogel who after the war goes by the name of Doktor Bernhardt (Jesper Christensen). Rachel and two of her other team David Peretz (Ciaran Hinds) and Stephan Gold (Tom Wilkinson) was keeping some of this lie for almost 30 years. Until one of her colleague and ex husband, Stephan ask about what David the last member of their team, to why David talk to her after one of her interview shows was done and Stephan ask. What did he told her that day? He also said to Rachel that he talk to David about what he knows but David made an extreme decision to kill himself. For Stephan point of view, it made things more complicated because he needs answer to where is there failed mission was hiding. This made Stephan to dig inside's Davids appartment and apperently he found out where Vogel is staying. So He ask Rechel the thing that should had been done 30 years ago.
The verdict of the movie, although the story line seems great what lacks is that the whole movie focuses more on the Detective aspect of the film and it lacks the excitment of what every spy movie has, and that would be the feeling of something new and not only what was alredy has seen in any James Bond or any other Spy film that has already been seen over the years. 2.7 / 5
