Movie Review: The Debt - R

In 1966, three Mossad agents pursue and capture a war criminal.  Thirty years later, as they are still considered heroes for their mission, the truth about the outcome is about to be revealed.

The story is told during two time periods, and  the sequence of events is unclear at first. 
Much of what happens is the direct result of decisions made at that moment;  as a result,character development is very good, as the story reveals much about them.

A very suspenseful, captivating story with a few interesting plot turns.

Content warnings:  The main warnings are for violence, and the F word is used multiple times.  There is a scene where Rachel, the female agent, visits a fertility doctor.  There is no nudity, but I was really uncomfortable when she was laying there with her legs in the stirrups. It was necessary to the story, as that was how they got to the man they were pursuing; but it could have been handled better.
