  1. A terrific action picture, fast-moving, studded with great stunts and smart enough not to take itself too seriously. Amid a plethora of high-minded, big-deal, year-end Oscar contenders, it offers a welcome contrast (and respite).

    Invites you not simply to identify with its low IQ but to cheer it on. This is a movie that knows you know it's dumb, and that's enough to make the whole thing worth tolerating.
  3. Reviewed by: Nat Johnson
    Thankfully, Torque knows what it wants to be (which is more than you can say about other recent biker-boy flicks) and flashes a jocular self-awareness about its genre affiliation.
  4. It may entertain you if you don't mind senseless stories and screaming soundtracks.
  5. With the exception of a decent train-top chase, Torque is all vroom and no action.
  6. 20
    Torque has a sense of humor about itself, but the laughs stick in the throat.

    WOW! It's the Fast the Furious on motorcycles! Torque is a ridiculous film from the producers of the Fast the Furious, and it's basically the same movie except for a few key points. First they didn't have the budget of the Fast the Furious which is evident by the stunts, which at times actually looked like a video game. I'm all for stunt men doing impossible things, and I don't mind good computer generated action either, however the CGI in Torque is just ridiculously bad, it is however nowhere near as bad as the acting. Instead of Vin Diesel and the dashing Paul Walker, the producers of this film settled for Ice Cube and some guy no one has ever heard of and trust me, the inexperience shows. This film is just as bad as all the other reviews say it is. Some poorly written, badly acted films, can be entertaining...Torque is not! Expand

    Terrible cinematography uses close-ups and poor camera angles to ruin the few good stunts and visual spectacles, while bad acting and worthless direction do nothing to help the awful plot. There is no sense in the action, which lacks plausibility, entertainment and realism - 0 for 3 is pretty bad in an action flick. This movie looks to have been made solely for the egos of its actors, but none of them are serviced well. Expand

    Hmmmm, ...Where to start, The acting was mind numbingly flat, the story line was even worse, and by the time the action started I was almost asleep. If it wasn't for the bikes I probably would have switched it off. Save your self the lost of a few brain cells and just don't watch it. Collapse
