Debt Collectors (2020) Movie Review
May 25, 2020 Season 1 Episode 65
The Debt Collector Movie

Debt Collectors (2020) is bloody good fun.  This sequel to the 2018’s The Debt Collector, picks up shortly after the explosive end of the original film.  A nearly healed French and Sue are reunited for a few final debt collections for their old boss, Tommy, (Vladimir Kulich skillfully reprising the role), as a payback for saving their lives.  In the tradition of its predecessor, the duo’s journey to Las Vegas and back to Los Angeles is fraught with obstacles and adversity as vehicles for the film’s bone-crushing action sequences.  As the story unfolds we learn that these jobs are more than they appear to be, and have a dangerous connection to their deceased nemesis, Barbosa.

Debt Collectors defies the typical notion that “buddy films” have to be formulaic to be successful.  Furthermore, it defies the convention that sequels are rarely as good, or even better than, their predecessors.   Debt Collectors is fun, explosive, well-scripted, and well directed movie in its own right.  As a stand alone it equals, or surpasses The Debt Collector, as a film.  Jesse V. Johnson, together with Scott Adkins,  have carved out a niche’ as filmmakers that have elevated the action film from a genre where the script and dialogue are ancillary.  Their films elevate the elements that support the action and fight choreography as holistic and indistinguishable elements of a great film.

In this episode Marc Zirogiannis discusses The Debt Collector Series and reviews this action film.

Debt Collectors hits DVD and streaming services on May 29th.  I highly recommend it.  In fact, during this time when people are consuming more video content, I recommend you make a double-feature of it.  Watch these two films back-to-back.  They are worth the investment of your time.
