A good crime thriller with the great Laurence Fishburne and fairly actor Cole Hauser from a few big movies. Story follows a undercover agent in a dangerous crime world.. Interesting plot from start til end and worth seeing for sure.

If you are a little bit squeamish then this movie is not for you. The severe bondage is painful and bloodthirsty, well acted with an overbearing on the suffering. Strong acting gives this story an edge that makes for entertainment of the highest quality. Photography keeps its distance allowing the eye to absorb the haunting backdrop with twist and turns, shocking. Nibbles: Stuffed Turkey Loaf.

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

It was funny to see Laurence Fishburne as the timid frightened victim; his acting was overall done well. The psychological tolls suffered by Cole Hauser's character should have been explored in more depth and his mediocre acting didn't help. Especially when talking to his girlfriend.

A decent (if low-budget) thriller. Terrific acting from the cast of TV actors, only to be let down by the script. Everything ties up nicely but the last scene of the movie jumped the gun and unnecesary.

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

Powerful movie, powerful actors and Jon Cryer looks hot with a gun. I cannot really remember Kevin James though.... Anyways, would have gotten 5 stars if it weren't for the.... confusing ending number 2.

A fascinating movie, got a good twist towards the end.

There's only one reason to see this movie: in slow-mo you can have a peek at Emmanuelle Chriqui's right boob (from behind). The rest is just a weak plot with a ridiculous twist at the end. And don't get me started on Fishburn's poor performance.
