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 »

This film is horrible!!!!!!
28 December 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

His first movie was funny, the second is not so impressive, but this film is really awful, is full of topics with situations with no logic at all, and the script... this film don't know what is it. Yes, the explosions are more realistic than ever, and the specials appearances of very know people from Spain and from outside make is almost entertainment, but this famous people are from footballs players to humorist, trough Spanish singers to ...Oliver Stone!!!! and most of them simply don't know how to act if front a camera, but it seems that is not a problem to Santiago Segura to include a full handful in this movie.

A joke that make Santiago Segura more rich than he is ever now

Totally superfluous!!!
