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 »

Awful!!!
4 October 2005 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

I just arrived from the movie theater and I can't be more disappointed. Being a big Santiago Segura fan, I was expecting to spend two hours with non-stop laughs. However, I kept waiting for the "fun" parts... and they never arrived.

Torrente 3 has been a big blast during the opening weekend, when nobody knew how third movie looked like. However, I would be surprised if it is half successful as Torrente 2.

Maybe it is because he kept repeating the same jokes over and over again (the famous "pajillas" joke is mentioned at least three times). Maybe his character is so well known that it is difficult to surprise the audience. Maybe the plot lacks of originality. I can think of 15 funny moments in Torrente 2. Only one or two are really funny in Torrente 3. I would definitely skip this one and watch the first two Torrente's again.
