Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Torque (DVD) (WS)

Amazon.com

A lot has changed in the biker-movie genre since Hell's Angels on Wheels, and Torque may be the new benchmark of feverish chopper action. Martin Henderson plays Cary, a speed king and relatively civilized outlaw with a knack for annoying everyone, including drug smugglers, the FBI, an ex-girlfriend, and, worst of all, biker gang leader Trey (Ice Cube), who thinks Cary killed his brother. On the run from everyone, Cary survives by playing all sides against one another. But the story is less important than the frantic, over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek action surrounding it. The Fast and the Furious producer Neal H. Moritz is responsible for this crazy, violent, yet appealingly sardonic cowboys-on-wheels piece. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars This is not a film for the cynical. February 20, 2004
I see no reason to not like this movie if you paid money to go see it. If you didn't realize it would be a cheesy action flick with clique driven dialogue, you are so completely ignorant on your movie selections that you disserve to be disappointed.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Torque- Formulaic but Entertaining All the More January 18, 2004
Torque, the new action flick from producer Neal H. Moritz, who produced other smash hits including The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, S.W.A.T. and XXX is actually good. Don't get me wrong the plot is disposable, infact there barely is a serviceable plot but somehow this movie entertains especially when the action gets going.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant suprise September 15, 2004
Format:DVD
I caught this movie on DVD the other day. I thought it was going to be terrible. It was actually great! The action goods are all there, but five minutes into it I got the joke and was laughing with it (not at it). I don't think this movie will appeal to everyone, but it will get two types for sure: action gearheads who just want a solid uncomplicated action picture, and smart viewers who can appreciate clever film-making and the in-jokes threaded throughout. After seeing the cameo of Dennis Weaver still being chased by the truck from Duel after thirty years, I was won over by the Torque's own charms. First of all the director, cinematographer, and editor did a great job. This film looks incredible. For those of you who actually care about film-making, this film is densely loaded with interesting angles and techniques that somehow manage to work as a cohesive style. I love the way Joseph Kahn stages scenes. It's very creative and he has a sharp sense of timing - action and comedywise. An overlooked first effort and I would like to see more from him. Second, I thought Martin Henderson as Cory Ford did a solid job as your typical running from the law good guy. I liked his charisma and hope he does more action flicks. There are some standout sequences but my favorites are the opening car chase, the train sequence, the freeway, and the surreal, over-the-top Playstation style ending. What's great is that each has its own feel so that there is no sense of repetition. You feel like each chase brings something new to the table, unlike other ilk of this genre. Need I say anything about the women in this film? Wow. I would let Jaime Pressly ride my bike anytime she wants. A word about the bad reviews here: ignore them. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny! September 20, 2004
Format:DVD
Get ready to throw logic out the window and strap on a seatbelt because Torque is one wild ride. It's best to watch this on a Friday night with your surround sound cranked up and a case of beer. This will test whether your flatscreen/speaker investment has hair on it or not. Think Fast and the Furious, but better, with a sense of humor and lots of wacky camera angles. You will really appreciate the winking way this movie was made (Ice Cube says something unprintable that harks back to his NWA days). Shut your brain off and enjoy this kick your teeth action movie that takes no prisoners and makes no apologies. Also: check out Adam Scott's funny performance as a crooked cop - kind of a James Spader gone really bad!
