  1. Surprise after surprise follows in this increasingly dark comedy, which is loaded with sharp observations and exceptionally complex characterizations.
  2. Veering between black comedy and intense psychological drama, David Moreton's bizarre thriller never manages to get its bearings.
  3. Starts quirky, grows steadily darker, doesn't build much excitement.
  4. 40
    All the male pulchritude can't make up for a muddled script.
  5. 40
    We're teased with the prospect of a deeper context.
  6. 40
    While butching up their hero, Moreton and cowriter Dennis Hensley left out one key ingredient: charisma -- for all his macho swagger, the guy's unbearable.
  7. 0
    I can honestly think of no reason why anyone would want to see Testosterone apart from the rumor that the film contains a full-frontal shot of Antonio Sabato Jr. naked.

    Although beautifully filmed, the script of Testosterone is absolutely horrible. Argentina is portrayed as a decadent "European" country Although beautifully filmed, the script of Testosterone is absolutely horrible. Argentina is portrayed as a decadent "European" country (forget that it is in Latin America) crossed with the most pathetic Latin Lover (and violent murderer) stereotypes. The main character plays the Ugly American abroad to the utmost and seems to have a head-splitting caffeine migraine throughout the entire movie. It is painful to watch this film, which is a shame, given all the attractive male (and female) actors and scenes of hot gay sex. Sonia Braga, an actress I adore, plays a terribly written and poorly acted matriarch. See at your own risk. Do not waste your money on the DVD. Expand
