Trivia

While widely known as "Torrente 3: El protector", which is the title used in posters, DVD covers, and all promotional material, the actual on-screen title reads "El protector" only, using before it the James Bond-like formula "Santiago Segura es Torrente en..." ("Santiago Segura is Torrente in...). The only entry in the series to actually have Torrente in the title is the first one, Torrente, el brazo tonto de la ley (1998). See more »

Torrente 3 - One was enough
26 October 2005 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

A film that succeeds in reaching new depths previously unheard of. There are similarities between this and Austin Powers: Goldmember in that the both concepts were already exhausted and could only try to entertain by stooping even lower. Torrente 3 surpassed Goldmember by a long shot.

The storyline, that barely exists, is used to exhibit Benny Hill style scenes with topless models, so nothing new, but raping an unconscious drug-addict, from behind, on two separate occasions, really makes you wonder who in their sane minds thought these were acceptable comedy moments. Other 'highlights' such as a parody of 9/11, illegal immigrant extortion, famous footballers (+ one Hollywood director) cinema cameos brawling in a brothel, says it all. The novelty of this charmingly degenerate character was spent after the first film, but to believe it could live on for a third is a cheap joke too far.
