Martin Henderson plays Ford, a biker who gets in some trouble with rival bike gang. Ice Cube plays a leader of a gang called the Reapers who are after Ford since Cube's character thinks he killed his brother. The Hellions are another group who are manipulating the Reapers into think that he killed his brother when it was indeed them, (the leader of the Hellions gang, played by surprisingly Matt Schluze). Director Joseph Kahn makes his directorial debut and makes a fine one. Though his film makes little sense with an ill-conceived and nonsensical plot it still is worthy just for its groundbreaking and spectacular bike stunts. Some might see them as fake, especially in the finale which is CGI. But overall it's mainly good fun. Surprisingly this movie felt a little long for being an astoundingly short 81 minutes. But you'll like it trust me, at least for the action.
Torque is rated PG-13 for Violence, Sexuality, Language and Some Drug References. The violence includes gunplay, head-banging fights and explosions. The sexuality isn't explicit mainly innuendo along with suggestive dancing. Language is moderate while not being overly strong. All in all, it's a fine ride, especially if you enjoyed The Fast and the Furious movies, XXX and S.W.A.T. See Torque, now playing in theatres everywhere.
The plot is a so recycled I can't even remember what film should get the credit for using it originally. The dialogue is so corny that the characters even make fun of each other after delivering their one-liners. The action is such over-the-top physics-defying fluff that it comes off as a science fiction film, and a good one at that.
Martin Henderson and Monet Mauzer act extremely well with the limited dialogue they were given. It seemed as though they knew how over-the top it was and just had fun with it, which makes for a very enjoyable viewing experience. The thing that sets this film apart from movies like The Fast and The Furious, Two Fast Two Furious or Biker Boyz is that it doesn't take itself nearly as serious as those films do.
Torque is director Joseph Kahn's first feature film. His background includes a celebrated career as a music video director and it shows.
So, if you know going into this movie that it is basically an eighty-one minute music video, and that concept is not offensive, you should have a wonderful time. If that doesn't sound like your bag, don't waste your time by going to see it then further waste your time by writing a review of the film like you thought it was going to get the Oscar for best picture of the year.
