Torque Reviews

January 10, 2018
Shot like a feature-length commercial, Torque is as bright and shiny and inconsequential as a chrome hubcap.
March 16, 2004
Blessed with a tongue-in-cheek script, plenty of burning-rubber chases, and a sense of its own ridiculousness.

Thankfully, Torque knows what it wants to be ... and flashes a jocular self-awareness about its genre affiliation.
January 17, 2004
Produces little in the way of rotation, torsion or anything else that could be roughly diagrammed as excitement.
January 16, 2004
A towering bore.
January 16, 2004
The loudest, trashiest, stupidest, cheesiest celebration of ritualized male aggression of 2004.
January 16, 2004
Even the more attention-grabbing scenes are too obviously faked to build suspense, and too confusingly cut to sustain continuity.
January 16, 2004
The script here is irredeemably 2 fetid and 2 foolish.

The creators of Torque needn't have gone to all the trouble of making a movie; they could have proceeded straight to the video game.

Torque is a vacuous variation on an old beer slogan: Looks great, less filling.

If your idea of a great time is drinking a case of Red Bull while playing video games at top volume, Torque ought to provide just the right level of hyperstimulation.

If you approach the movie with a sense of humor and an appreciation for the preposterous, you may have a decent time.

For all the fast cuts, the furious vibes, the faux sexiness, Torque is canned and mighty flat.
January 16, 2004
The film is better than it might have been, and better than it had to be. Take it on its own terms, and you might find it interesting.

This is a movie that knows you know it's dumb, and that's enough to make the whole thing worth tolerating.

A biker picture for the Xbox generation, Torque is the most senseless assault on the senses imaginable.
January 15, 2004
This monotonously macho action-adventure film wears testosterone as if it were a new fragrance.

A high-decibel biker flick that puts the 'less' back in mindless.
January 15, 2004
The biker toughs in Torque sure do break a lot of laws. Mostly those of physics and common sense.

Torque is a terrific action picture, fast-moving, studded with great stunts and smart enough not to take itself too seriously.

Zippy, stylish fun.
January 15, 2004
A movie made by people who seem to have chuckled up their sleeves as they shot the picture and expect to laugh all the way to the bank afterwards.
