A terrific cast delivering top performances %u2026 but the writing %u2026 ends up tying itself in knots
...a well-intentioned yet undeniable misfire.
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.
A predictable, yet watchable thriller. However, the final scene (suggesting that there's a scope for a sequel) was absolutely unnecessary & way too silly.
Great movie with a fascinating story plot about an undercover FBI agent who realizes that following the path of his father isn't so remarkable as he had once assumed. Struggling to come to terms with the deception, he realizes that in the end it is his choice alone but the consequences are great. Cole Hauser, James Cromwell, and Laurence Fishburne stars. Definitely worth seeing.
This is one TWISTED type of "guess who" movie that could have been a made for TV kind of thing...see this for the SUSPENSE of it...Constantly ask yourself..."WHO'S ZIGGY"??? LOL!
