Movie Info

Escaped convicts Quaid and Kirk enter in to a lethal game of cat and mouse after abducting a pretty hostage, and clashing over what to do with her once they've found a place to hide out. Though sadistic Quaid wants to make the girl his personal sex slave, Kirk's conscience won't let him stand idly by while another person endures such inhumane abuse. When these criminals clash, only the strongest of the two will live to see another day. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

A terrific cast delivering top performances %u2026 but the writing %u2026 ends up tying itself in knots

Audience Reviews for Tortured

A predictable, yet watchable thriller. However, the final scene (suggesting that there's a scope for a sequel) was absolutely unnecessary & way too silly.

Tortured, for the most part, is the sort of film that you think is going one direction, and ends up going in another. This is largely to the film's benefit, being more concerned with set-up, story, and characters. As a character study, Tortured is helped greatly by a strong performance from Cole Hauser, who does an excellent job keeping up a sustained level of intensity, and has a depth not seen by the rest of the cast, despite some good work by James Cromwell (Laurence Fishburne phones it in for the most part). The writing holds up for most of the film, save the last act, which seems to lose the film's earlier sense of realism. Still, the plot twists help keep it suspenseful, and the execution is enough to keep you engaged. It ultimately doesn't rise much above a B thriller, but for what it is, it works.

3.5/5 Stars
