Torrente 3: El Protector - Best Spanish comic movie 2005
1 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

How to manage a legion of actors from TV channels as TVE 1, Antena 3, Tele 5 and Canal Sur. With actor and directors world wide known as Yvonne Sció, Fabio Testi, Oliver Stone and Guillermo del Toro in such a magisterial way with an edition of smooth transition but at the same time dynamic. With some quotes outrageous that look like that they were written by the magazine "Mad Magazine". Woman take out from "Playboy" and spin offs from famous movies. With the best adult humor. A movie to watch several times to don't lose details of it. This man knows how to make a movie to justify the worth of buying a ticket to go and see it. Best foreign comic movie for 2005.
