Better than Biker Boyz
13 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

After avoiding the life of the motorcycle gangs, long-time biker Cary Ford (Martin Henderson) returns home, only to become at odds with the leaders of two gangs, the Hellions and the Reapers. The latter is led by Trey (Ice Cube) who thinks Cary killed his younger brother, when the leader of the former gang frames Ford for it. With the help of his friends, Ford must outrace the two vengeful biker gangs, as well as the FBI, in order to prove his good name and live to ride again.

The film is pretty much as silly as the plot sounds. I saw Torque in theaters and while its not worth nine bucks to watch its still better than some people are saying it is. It's certainly not bottom 100 bad and deserves a higher rating something around a 4.1 maybe. Torque is the type of movie that you would expect in January as the month is known as a dumping ground for movies, so don't walk in expecting a good film. Torque is a lot better than Biker Boyz since it has more action and it's shorter. Still, Torque is far from a good movie.

The highlight of the movie are the over the top action scenes and for the most part, they deliver. Another good thing about Torque is Monet Mazur. She's pretty and she gives a decent performance. Besides for those things, Torque is kind of a joke. The acting is horrible as all the actors seem to be looking for the exit and a paycheck. Martin Henderson plays Cary and after a nice performance in the Ring, he gives a pretty bad one here. Ice Cube isn't much better and he gives an over the top performance though that is kind of the point since the whole movie is over the top.

The whole story is predictable and it looks like something a three year old put together. The film is highly unrealistic so keep that in mind if you're going to watch it. The dialog is incredibly cheesy and bad. The direction is clumsy as this is Joseph Kahn's first and hopefully last movie. Like I said before, the action is decent but it doesn't break any new ground. This is the type of movie that you might enjoy if you aren't taking it too seriously but it's really not worth watching. In the end, this lame action flick is better left on the shelf. Rating 4/10
