The Debt

 (2010)

The Debt Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In 1997, shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel and Stefan about their former colleague David. All three have been venerated for decades by their country because of the mission that they undertook back in 1966, when the trio tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team's mission was accomplished - or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations.

For more about The Debt and the The Debt Blu-ray release, see the The Debt Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson, Ciarán Hinds, Jessica Chastain, Sam Worthington, Marton Csokas
Director: John Madden

The Debt Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Debt arrives on Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. This is yet another curiously soft looking presentation from Universal (and Focus Films/Miramax), though at least part of this can be attributed to Madden's deliberate filtering of such sequences as the opening desert segment (which Madden rather incredibly reveals was actually filmed in frigid conditions and was later manipulated in post). A lot of the film is diffuse and just a tad on the fuzzy side, though there are times when fine detail just pops magnificently (look at the screencap of the evil doctor being shaved for a spectacular example). Madden intentionally desaturates quite a bit of the film, as well as filtering other sequences, giving a lot of the film unnatural, but effective, looking color, often with pushed contrast and slightly effulgent back lighting. Overall the Blu-ray looks decently detailed and no doubt represents what Madden was going for, but those who are expecting a razor sharp presentation may find themselves wondering if Universal has dropped the ball yet again.


The Debt Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Debt's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.l mix is incredibly nuanced and surprisingly subtle at times. That becomes evident in one of the first sequences, when we get the first flashback to the 1960s, in the claustrophobic East Berlin apartment the three Mossad agents have squirreled the Doctor away to, an apartment which is in disrepair and suffering from a badly leaking roof. Little "plop, plops" of water into pots fill the left channel first and then migrate over to the right as the camera moves through the rooms with Chastain and the position of various pots changes. The mix here isn't overly boisterous, even in some of the purported "action" sequences like Chastain's capture of the Doctor or, later, a violent showdown involving Mirren late in the film. What is offered instead is incredibly well placed, and more often than not nicely directional, effects that help to create an oppressive atmosphere. Thomas Newman's score is also brilliantly understated and helps immeasurably to create mood throughout the film, and it is very well presented on this track. Dialogue is cleanly and clearly presented (in a variety of languages, as the Mirren character especially seems to be fluent in just about every imaginable language). Fidelity is superb and dynamic range is excellent.
