"The Debt" Beats Down Opening Competition

It's nice to see that John Madden's "The Debt," a relatively smart, tidy adult thriller will likely out-gross "Apollo 18" and "Shark Night 3D" to take 2nd for the weekend. 
As I said (in far greater words) in my review, "The Debt" pretty much works in spite of the fact that its decades-spanning narrative never fully takes off on an emotional level and that its characters, portrayed by two different actors, never really feel like one. 

Nevertheless, quality entertainment aimed at older audiences that performs decently (especially delayed, troublesome films like "The Debt") deserves some recognition - it's too rare a sight.
