"SWEET REVENGE is a talky yet involving made for tv movie from the mid-80s. Kevin Dobson (Knots Landing) is cast against type as an opportunistic womanizing major who gets a young Helen Hunt pregnant and arranges for an abortion. When Hunt dies as a result, he shifts the blame to an earnest young soldier (Merritt Butrick) who comes to a tragic end. 14 years later we meet Butrick's sister (a young and engaging Kelly McGillis) who falls for Alec Baldwin, who just happens to be in Dobson's command. McGillis plans revenge on Dobson but when plans go awry, she must confront him from a different angle. Hindered by an amateurish transfer, the movie suffers from its datedness, but with its tight plot and some convincing acting, it manages to be mildly provocative entertainment."
