Critic Consensus: Silly and noisy, Torque is stylish fun for the MTV crowd.

Movie Info

Biker Cary Ford has returned to his hometown to reunite with his girlfriend Shane and take care of a little unfinished business. When he skipped town months ago, Ford was in possession of several motorcycles belonging to Henry, a ruthless drug dealer and leader of the Hellions biker gang. Now Henry's putting the squeeze on Ford in an attempt to retrieve the bikes, which have something a little more valuable than gas in their tanks. When Ford is less than willing to cooperate, Henry frames him for the murder of Junior, younger brother of Trey, the fearsome leader of the Reapers motorcycle gang. With the help of his loyal buddies Dalton and Val, Ford must outrun an FBI agent who's hot on his trail while eluding both the misinformed Trey, hell-bent on revenge, and the callous Henry, who's dead-set on getting back what is rightfully his. Racing across the desert in a perilous attempt to prove his innocence and convince Shane that he's worth a second chance, Ford must outrace his enemies if he wants to clear his name and live to ride another day.more

Thankfully, Torque knows what it wants to be ... and flashes a jocular self-awareness about its genre affiliation.

Silly and violent, mostly comprised of stunts.

Common Sense Media

A low grade really bad action flick without a single brain cell in its head...

Cinema Crazed

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?

Torque is so awful it would have embarrassed Roger Corman forty years ago.

Movie Metropolis

Blessed with a tongue-in-cheek script, plenty of burning-rubber chases, and a sense of its own ridiculousness.

Well, a lot action in a movie can be good, but sometimes if you put it too much, it can be a weaker point too, just like this movie.... The action scene with the motor racing thing was great, knowing that motor is more difficult to be filmed than car... The story just okay, but one thing that I don't like from this movie is the cast... Martin Henderson don't fit for the main character of this movie... He's not cool, not handsome, and more important that he's not winning everybody's heart... But the worst came from Ice Cube... He really really didn't fit to the role he played in this movie... If I have to be honest, maybe he's not destined to be an actor... The other cast just okay, just that two actors that make a big hole to this movie, besides the action scene that too much and the 'amateur' directing style this movie have....

Everyone has a guilty pleasure movie they enjoy. THIS is one of those for me. It's bad. Oh, WOW, is it bad. But that's why I enjoy it so much. Bad cheesy acting, insane action, and hot chicks battling it out ninja-style while riding motorcycles. What's not to love?!?
