Martin Henderson (The Ring) stars as Cary, a biker who is framed for the murder of a gang leader Trey's (Ice Cube) brother by Henry (Matt Schulze). Now, Cary finds himself on the run from both Trey's gang and the FBI, headed by the wise-cracking Agent McPherson Adam Scott. From Neal H. Moritz, producer of The Fast and the Furious and XXX, Torque co-stars Jaime Pressly and Monet Mazur. ~ Matthew… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Thankfully, Torque knows what it wants to be ... and flashes a jocular self-awareness about its genre affiliation."
‑ Nat Johnson, Village Voice
"The loudest, trashiest, stupidest, cheesiest celebration of ritualized male aggression of 2004."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"A low grade really bad action flick without a single brain cell in its head..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Blessed with a tongue-in-cheek script, plenty of burning-rubber chases, and a sense of its own ridiculousness."
‑ Jamie Russell, BBC
"There is a certain kick to the film and its massive mayhem, but it all seems quite coldly programmed."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Produces little in the way of rotation, torsion or anything else that could be roughly diagrammed as excitement."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"Even the more attention-grabbing scenes are too obviously faked to build suspense, and too confusingly cut to sustain continuity."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"If you want to see Matrix on bikes, Torque is the stuff. Just as long as you don't want any of that... what do they call it? Acting or something?"
‑ Oz,
"A very loud movie, loud in every way. It's loud with noise of motorbikes, and it's loud with overacting and loud with gravity-defying effects that seem ultimately ridiculous"
‑ Michael Szymanski,
"Torque is like a third generation copy of a bad videotape."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"A towering bore."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Silly and violent, mostly comprised of stunts."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Torque is so awful it would have embarrassed Roger Corman forty years ago."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Um videogame mal realizado."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"This is a movie so stupid, I'm surprised Paul Walker isn't in it."
‑ David Cornelius,
