I gave this movie a "10" just to counter all the idiots that gave it such a low score that it ended up the 37th as of this writing worst movie of all time. Bull. It's not that bad. It's certainly better than that terribly dull BIKER BOYZ. Oh sure, it's not going to win any Oscars, but it's also as "good" as the other movies about racing cars FAST AND THE FURIOUS and its sequel. Heck, it's not like those movies were wonders -- they were just as dumb, slick, and pointless as TORQUE. And anyone who has owned or ridden a motorcycle before in their life <more>
will "get" TORQUE. Real score: 5/10. Inflated score to counter the idiots that gave it such a low rating: 10/10.
This movie kind of rocked. I had an excellent time. Really good in a put your brain away kind of way. Here are the good things about it: Martin Henderson, cool new leading actor. I liked the fact he's unknown so he's mysterious.Ice Cube, says something about the police if you know what I mean.The humor, it's all good.The action, what else is there to say, amazing.The direction, this is a really great looking film.Jaime Pressly, um...wow.Now, the bad: It's really short.That's it. Go see it.
this movie is completely ridiculous, but i love it -spoiler- (by fliphop)
if they just cut out saying 'bitch' a few times i would give it a ten. the plot is shakespearian. the dialog is really corny but the film makes fun of its own dialog via the relationship between the 2 lead characters. the fbi cop is amazingly cast and so his his side kick. he is like some starbucks sarcastic teenager who got a hummer for his birthday.the visuals, though, are what make this movie. they are absolutely crazy. even with the matrix and all the other movies like it, the visuals in this film are still quite something to see. they have unusual angle changes, strange lighting, <more>
atmospheric effects, zooms, low angles of motorcycle chases, etc. there are numerous times where a 0.5 second frame is injected in a really weird manner that is quite striking, such as when the woman pushes the trigger on the explosives, or when the bike rider flips up her knife in slow motion and catches it. the shot of ice cube looking at 'ford' through the train is also quite striking.the stunts are incredible ... the product placement is completely over the top and obvious in a really silly way, but somehow it fits with the movie, because the movie is over the top in a really silly way too. and motorcyclers and racers really do have corporate logos pasted all over their bodies so it doesn't seem ridiculous.the evil woman reminds me of a Disney villain from Cinderella or something. if you stop trying to analyze everything so much you just might have a jolly good time eating popcorn as you watch the explosions and motorbikes flying all over the screen.
Made by people who realise how ridiculous and excessive the average Hollywood action movie has become, Torque revels in the glorious absurdities of the genre, while simultaneously poking fun at the outlandishness of it all for other examples that adopt the same approach, see Con Air, the Charlie's Angels movies, and the more subtle & misunderstood Escape From LA . Make no mistake, this film is - intentionally - a shiny, multicoloured live-action cartoon that has as little to do with reality as the average press conference by the Bush Administration.In this movie, every action <more>
set-piece breaks several different laws of physics. Bikes don't just crash in Torque - they explode into fireballs with such ferocity that anyone nearby is thrown twenty feet into the air. Chases through city streets are conducted at such intense speed that bystanders are blown over and car windows shatter. Product placement isn't sneaked into the background, but blatantly placed at centre-stage. Every male in the film is either handsome & slim, or bulky & menacing, while all the women are centrefold material. It's the kind of movie where a bad-ass like Trey Ice Cube somehow manages to lead a gang of outlaw bikers who control most of the crime in downtown LA, while refusing to deal drugs or have drugs sold on his turf. It's the sort of film in which the hero proves he's innocent of murder when in fact his alleged 'evidence' would never stand up in court and is promptly allowed to walk away without even giving a statement to the police, despite the fact that during the course of the movie he's stolen several vehicles, been responsible for the deaths of numerous bad guys, and caused an immense amount of property damage. It's not meant to be taken seriously for a second, and if you keep that in mind, it's a lot of fun.Since all the characters are barely two dimensional stereotypes, the cast is hardly taxed, but do what they can with what they're given. Martin Henderson as the hero is bland, but not as wooden as he could have been, while Monet Mazir as his girl and the world's most glamorous mechanic is fairly spunky. Will Yun Lee from Witchblade and Die Another Day and Jay Hernandez draw the short straws as Henderson's sidekicks: they have so little to do that there seems no point having them in the movie, and you wonder why their characters weren't written out while the script was in development. Matt Schulze as chief villain Henry James is surprisingly low key, considering his cocky, swaggering turn in The Transporter, but still makes an effective nemesis. One of those actors clearly born to play bad guys, Schulze could become the Christopher Walken of the 21st century if he plays his cards right. In fact, none of the cast truly disgrace themselves, and the only false note is skinny Brit actor Max Beesley, bizarrely miscast as James's right-hand enforcer.However, the movie's one star turn is provided by Jaime Pressly as China, James's girl. Even though she's only on screen for about 15 minutes throughout and has about five lines of dialogue, when Pressly turns up you can't look at anything else. And I'm not talking about the fact that she's undeniably easy on the eye or clad in barely-there leathers - this girl has star quality. With her face set in a permanent sneer amongst an explosion of piercings and tattoos, China is the Biker Vixen from Hell, and Pressly doesn't just steal this movie - she rules it.
I dig custom car, truck, and bike themed movies, some are good, many are not to great. But I was surprised at this one. Quite a bit of action and humor. Ice Cube rocks in this one, Matt Schulze's hair did not rock. Hot chicks, car chases, and even Kung Fu fighting. OK, so there's quite a bit of Pepsico references in the movie, I personally like Pepsi, it's the taste of a new generation. If you enjoyed The fast and the Furious, then chances are you'll dig this one to. Jesse James even makes a cameo, Yayy!!! Yeah it has it's predictable plots and it's cheesy one liners <more>
but hey, so did Titanic and that movie was one of the most popular flicks of the nineties.
I have seen lots of bad critics for this movie. But is it really that bad? The way they use the camera are great in many scenes and the humour just set me laughing!! I have seen the fast and the furious movies, and they are s**t compared to Torque!! after I have seen a club called "Plastic MC" in action i know that many of the stunts on bikes can be done.. I loved this movie!! I got to give it a 9 instead of 10 because of two scenes with bad backgrounds. But thats really all I feel is putting it down!!! The scene with the Y2K bike is a bit over the top...But what action movie is <more>
not?? Many movies are far worse in that field... Don't you agree??? It's also good to see that the hero isn't perfect, as many other seems to be....
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 <more>
Torque's own charms. First of all it 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. The film is too good as an action movie to be dismissed - what are the looking for, Cold Mountain? Disregard anyone who complains about the "pepsi product placement" for that is most definitely someone who did not get the joke two motorcycle dominatrix chicks staged opposite from each other under big prominent soft drink signs - classic! . I think the movie suffers from a minor contradiction - it's script is too dumb, but it's film-making is too smart. Yes, the story is crap, but you don't watch a motorcycle chase movie for STORY. If you sit back and enjoy this modern riff on Roger Corman, you might find a smile on your face. If you have the ability to appreciate the sly wit of smart visual film-making, you could find yourself cheering like I did. Worst movie ever? Ridiculous. Three 1/2 out of five stars, maybe more.
If you are looking for a realistic biker movie, then this is not your movie. If you're looking for something that has a lot of excitement and can put up with some superhero special effects, then this is the movie for you. It was a good movie overall. The characters were well developed and it had a good storyline. The only thing that spoiled it for me is that I wasn't expecting the over the top, not believable stunts.I thought it was good to see women actually riding bikes. Ice Cube and Martin Henderson were a bonus to just look at in this movie. I would suggest checking this movie out.
Nothing Special but a fun watch (by iwatcheverything)
I liked this movie. There was nothing special about it at all. Everything looked fake and most of the stunts were beyond believable. Who Cares? It is a fun movie that not only pokes fun at itself but at the makers own other movie Fast and Furious. I thought this was a fun watch and all the votes seem to be coming from people who were looking for a serious movie with great acting. Why? You can tell by previews this is not that kind of film. This is a great way to just entertain yourself. Go see it soon.
