The Debt
Release Date:1998
Genre: Action | Drama | Thriller
Director(s): Rod Hewitt (The Dangerous, Strip Search)
Writer(s): Kevin Gebhard & Rod Hewitt (Sworn Enemy, The Dangerous)
Starring: Lorenzo Lamas, Michael Pare, Herb Mitchell

Just before the final season of “Renegade,” Lorenzo Lamas cut his hair. Gone were the long, oily locks of yesteryear, replaced with a much more conservative look. He used extensions for quite a while according to some people, which allowed for the last season of “Renegade” to still feature the trademark hair. Eventually moving onto the syndicated bomb “Air America,” the hair was kept short for his role. Sometime during that period between “Renegade” and “Air America,” to the best of my knowledge, he filmed the movie Back to Even, called The Debt upon its North American release.

The Debt is probably a movie that Lorenzo Lamas would like to forget. Not that it’s necessarily bad, as it’s more mundane than anything, but the fact that a cocky man like Lamas probably doesn’t want you to remember how his hair looked. Lamas as a whole looks pretty terrible here. You probably wouldn’t even recognize him if you popped the tape in without having read this.

All you need to know about this one is that Lamas, for the lack of a better word, plays (and looks like) a timid nerd. When his dad has to get his arm amputated after getting it stuck in a printing machine, the nerd soon learns that his former buddy (Pare), who is now a crime boss, expects him to pay something like $20,000 for a lost bet that he never even made. The only way he can get out of this situation is to help Pare locate some plates that can be used in a counterfeiting scheme.

Chances are that The Debt is the most uninteresting movie Lamas has ever been a part of. The Debt’s script, directing, and all that jazz is close to pathetic, and nothing makes any kind of an impact throughout the entire movie. Michael Pare is as reliable as ever, though, putting in a great performance, but his talents alone aren’t enough to save this.

DVD: Barebones.
