Bad 80's movie featuring two has been actors.

Sweet revenge (1987) is a terrible 80's film. The" movie" is about intrigue and abduction in some tropical third world country. It's so sad to see stars such as Martin Landau and Nancy Allen reduced to perform in such tripe. This picture screams "cheap" and the performances were absolutely dreadful. There's nothing worth noting about this film except it was the first film that I've seen Gina Gershon act in. My advice to you my friend is to avoid it like the plague.

Horrible, with no redeeming values
