In Act IV, scene 7, Laertes says he wants revenge on Hamlet because he killed Laertes' father, and because he drove Laertes' sister Ophelia mad.
This motivation fits the structure of a revenge play in itself, but Laertes also publicly pledges to take revenge on his father's killer, which fits the structure too.
