Witnessing his daughter (Catherine Miles) killed by a bunch of rapists leaves Mark (Richard Harrison), a Vietnam veteran and highly trained killing machine - with only one goal in his life: To kill those who have killed her - which he does, and along the way, he also kills quite a few scumbags that just remind him of her killers, and in the process, saving the lives of quite a few honest citizens. The police fail to get a hold on him, but it's in doubt whether they even want to as he's doing their job. But there are gangster boss Bill (Mike Monty) and his right hand Peter (Jim Gaines) who regard Mark as an opportunity to have the streets cleaned of their opponets, to then get rid of him and have the turf to themselves. So they kidnap Mark's wife Yvette (Ann Jackson) and team him up with hitwoman Liza (Ann Milhench) to kill baddies (of other organizations) left and right, and at first, Mark doesn't even care that much as killing baddies anyways, but eventually he tries to find out who's behind all of this, and is almost killed by his employers in the process. Liza, who has long fallen for Mark, catches a bullet for him, but before dying spills the beans on Bill's whole organisation. Bill tries to quiet down things by returning Mark's wife and a suitcase of money to go with it, then though blows up the wife and the suitcase and puts the blame on Mark in an anonymous phonecall to the police. He also provides the police with enough evidence to send Mark to the chair, but the cops figure they'll let him clean up the streets first ...

Of course it all ends in a massive shootout at the end of which Mark is the only one left standing, and he gives himself up to the police the minute he has achieved his goal ...

 

Blood Debts is by no stretch of the word a good film, it's blunt and simplistic, it's way too straight forward for its own good, the direction is at best functional, and quite a bit of the acting is wooden to say the least - but at the same time it features quite a few of the aspects one has come to learn to like from Filippino action movies (if not always for the right reasons): There's almost non-stop action, a tendency towards weapons fetishism, rather laughable dialogue and plottwists, exotic locale and a certain roughness to the proceedings that for some reason seems to be inherent to Filippino action flicks. Plus, Richard Harrison's laid back performance and predilection for jogging suits of course add an extra dimension to the proceedings.
