Movie trailer: The Debt, starring Sam Worthington


21st July 2010

It's a movie about terrorists and Jews, so it's a bit like Munich, only no one has daddy issues and the Hulk isn't in it.

Every once in a while I make a conscious effort to report on 'serious' movie news, to go along with all the stories I publish about superheroes and fighting robots and werewolf pig babies. So here you are: the first trailer for The Debt, a thriller by director John Madden about gaaaah I just can't do it. Take it away, official synopsis.

"In 1965, three young Israeli Mossad agents on a secret mission capture and kill a notorious Nazi war criminal. Now, thirty years later, a man claiming to be the Nazi has surfaced in the Ukraine and one of the former agents must go back undercover to seek out the truth."
I'm sure this is very worthy and weighty and has Helen Mirren in it so will definitely get a least one Oscar nomination, but damn, I tried hard to concentrate but I just couldn't do it. In Sam Worthington's last three movies, he's played a creature-slaying demigod, a synthetic blue alien and a robot in a man's body. So I'm blaming him. I don't think I counted even one explosion, for shame.
