| What are friends for?
"Best Revenge" would best be described as an ethics and loyalty test for drug dealers. The set up is this, John Heard's friend asks him to broker a big drug deal in Morroco. When he declines because it's too risky, the buyers resort to putting the squeeze on Heard. The Morrocan police seem just as corrupt as the growers, with routine payoffs of officials greasing the drug exportation pipeline. After some double crosses, the film rushes to a somewhat surprising and somewhat unsatisfying conclusion. The realism of "Best Revenge" cannot be denied, and the acting is solid, but the overall entertainment value does not quite live up to expectations. - MERK
