Gross-out comedy and breakout Spanish hit , being written and directed by Segura, who also stars
14 May 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This time Torrente reunites a geek gang to execute a killing but he is detained and goes in prison . In ¨Torrente 4 Lethal crisis¨ Santiago Segura is mainly accompanied by Kiko Rivera , Isabel Pantoja's son . New adventure in Torrente series starred by a racist , rude , despicable and drunken ex-cop . Torrente has a great big package and he'd like you to look at it , he is a bungler detective that deserves to be repulsed . Fourth entry in ¨Torrente series¨ , the masterpiece of earthy films , starred by the most grotesque detective and well played by Santiago Segura , he is a real private dick , a poster child for police corruption . Featuring politically incorrect private detective Torrente , he is a macho man , lazy , rude , sex maniac , drunkard , Athletic fan , caring only about protecting and serving himself . He is a Bad Santa of the police force , a peculiar and fatty man , being a ¨El Fari¨ fan , too . Despite that , he still manages to get the job done . Torrente follows the exploits of Jose Luis Torrente , an uneducated man acting for his own selfish purports . In previous outings Torrente was rejected from police duty and he returned to private investigation . A four film package, that is, with the quartet of Santiago Segura's massive cult hit comedies arriving on Us streaming platforms yesterday . The botcher ex-dirty private eye forms a new band of underdogs (Paquirrin , Barragan , Cañita Brava) to carry out a killing , being hired by Ramírez (Enrique Villen) but Torrente is imprisoned . Here crooked cop Torrente breaks out prison to seek revenge those former sidekicks betrayed him . As we find our anti-hero in a delicate situation but he can count on to help him some people , his equally freak friends .

This is 4º installment sequel in Torrente series are each starred written , directed , performed by Santiago Segura as the repulsive, sleazy and frequently drunk "Torrente" , an ex-officer of the law who refuses to accept his expulsion from the police . These films are made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a nice entertainment . "Torrente" is a passable and unapologetic dark comedy with great special effects , it has several funny and hilarious scenes and quite successful action scenes with persecution , car crashes and many other things . The picture contains thrills , noisy action , tongue-in-cheek , grotesque situations and above all , humor . Although there are also nudism , bad-mouthed language , bad taste jokes and profanities . ¨Torrente 4¨ is written, directed, produced and stars Segura, whose production house Amiguetes Entertainment produced the film , UIP and Sony hold Spanish distribution rights ; it ran up the biggest domestic opening for any film at the 2014 Spanish box office, scoring Euro3.6 million ($4.5 million) its first days . The screenplay is absurd as well as crazy , just what makes laugh a lot , that the character "Torrente" a very slutty , clumsy , sexist , Machista , extreme-right-wing , on a real person is despicable , being not adequate , but this is a film that satirizes all this and that just means he's a pathetic character , though he also has his unsettling charms . First ¨Torrente , El Brazo Tonto De Ley¨ set box office records in its day , took $707,000 and Torrente 2 grossed more than €22 million in 2001 , while the opening figures of "Torrente 5" "are lower than those of its predecessor, this "Torrente 4: Lethal Crisis," released three years ago, with $10.6 million and 1.1 million tickets sold . The film contains numerous cameos of famous people ; a lot of familiar faces , many of them known from ¨Cuore¨ magazines . And the cameos are very funny and likable and there are lots of laughters and jokes . The movie contains a colorful and adequate cinematography by Teo Delgado . Thrilling as well as appropriate musical score by Roque Baños . The film takes advantage of impressive special effects , especially on its final part when takes place a breathtaking explosions , car chases , including : bound and leaps vehicles and expensive crashes . Santiago Segura dares to make films with total entertainment and bemusement . And "Torrente " is pure eschatological fun , it is 100 and some minutes of fun and laughters . It is a commendable effort by Santiago Segura to make a film like this . Few directors are able to achieve results as ¨Torrente¨ , the biggest box-office in Spain until ¨8 Apellidos Vascos¨. This film will not disappoint Santiago Segura fans.

So if you want to be all sophisticated, like the audiences in Spain and across Europe that flock to these films in droves, here's your chance : The quintet of movies in the Torrente Package such as , the first instalment was ¨Torrente El Brazo Tonto De La Ley¨ or ¨The Dumb Arm of the Law¨ (1998) with Javier Camera , Neus Asensi ; being followed by "Torrente 2: Mission in Marbella" with Juanito Navarro , Paloma Cela , Santi Millan , Jose Mota , Pablo Carbonel , among others ; ¨Torrente 3 El Protector¨ in which the horrendous Spanish detective becomes a bodyguard , being performed by José Mota , Yvonne Sciò , Eduardo García , Fabio Testi ; . And ¨Torrente V : Misión Eurovegas¨ has a good cast as Alec Baldwin , Anna Simon , Carlos Areces , Chus Lampreave and many others . The movies were written by, directed by and starred popular Spanish comedian-director Santiago Segura and is getting the remake treatment from New Line Cinema ; all of them were produced by Andres Vicente Gomez, who exec produced the Academy Award-winning Belle Epoque
