Trivia

(at around 36 mins) When two prisoners are threatening Torrente with forks in the dinner room, Gregorio tells him "easy, the forks are plastic"; Torrente, visibly worried, replies "sure, no sweat". In the previous movie (Torrente 3: El protector (2005)) a highjacker kills a flight attendant with a plastic fork right after Torrente laughed at him claiming he couldn't do it. See more »

Torrente is in crisis for reboot
1 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

What worked in 1st part (excellent movie BTW) and held throughout second movie, failed in 3rd and now 4th part.

Reason is simple. Torrente relied on same things that made it good in first two parts but now it is getting nowhere. Script and story are thin as air. Acting is good but keep repeating same jokes all over again and it is boring.

Torrente was in need of refreshment but it's author failed to see that.

There are some funny moments in this movie but that is all there is to it. Not to mention it had so much scenes where things could get better but they were not used in innovative way.
