Critic Reviews for The Debt (Oliver's Deal)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (5)

  • With a tortured structure, uneven pacing, and the specter of the oft-reviled "white savior," The Debt's narrative never rises to the level of its thesis about economic exploitation.

  • Well-meaning but contrived ...

  • Toggling between the breathtaking Peruvian highlands and the busy clamor of Lima, "The Debt" places three very different lives on a collision course freighted with moral and financial complexity.

  • Barney Elliott's The Debt deals in murky ethics and exploitation in this well-acted trio of connecting stories set in Peru.

    Jul 7, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite its best efforts to be thought-provoking, the film is dramatically inert, slow and its revelations aren't all that politically illuminating, relying on coincidence and worn tropes to obfuscate its lack of ingenuity.

  • The result is well meaning, well shot (especially the rural scenes) and well acted (you can't go wrong with David Strathairn), but ultimately a dramatic disappointment.
