Why was this movie even made?
6 January 2007 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

This movie fails on so many levels it's hard to catalog them all, but I'll try. Acting. Directing. Script. Plot. Voice dubs. Miscellaneous goofs and errors. With the "plot" of sex slavery, there was a chance for the typical sexplotation in these sorts of movies. None of that (though there is a brief scene with Gina Gershon and one of the other "actresses" doing some skinny-dipping, hardly worth the effort.)

The "movie" is a muddled attempt at...something. It tries to be a "kidnapped girls get revenge" movie, of which there are plenty, but "Sweet Revenge" does not offer any of the "best" of this genre.

If you have 90 minutes to spare, organize your silverware drawer or watch infomercials...don't watch this "movie."
