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 »

Still Torrente, but with bigger budget...
14 May 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is yet another movie in the Torrente series of world wide famous (apparently) Santiago Segura. As a third installment in the series, as Torrente 3: El protector, the one-man-show Segura demonstrates once again that he has what it takes to make an audience laugh.

Though his take on comedy is very subjective, as he continues to flesh out his character on-screen, Torrente, who is now back on the Police Force and takes on the mission of protecting a foreign diplomat and her entourage.

The humor is dirty and very vulgar, but if you can get past that, or embrace it even, there is something more, something deeper than just cheap laughs. You can always see Segura's characters on the streets, in schools, bars, and whatnot. They are real, without any sort of care for what society thinks of them. Segura's films are more hilarious social studies than actual films. The drunk next door, the gun obsessed loser, the slutty cousin, all these types of characters add to his films greatly.

The 'bad taste' montages are a big plus to see this movie. Espanol, de Espania !
