While widely known as "Torrente 2: Misión en Marbella", which is the title used in posters, DVD covers, and all promotional material, the actual on-screen title reads "Misión in Marbella" 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 »

José Luis Torrente:
I got to the Costa del Sol about 3 years ago. I had some cash set aside, and after dedicating my life to law enforcement, I moved to Marbella to take some time off for myself.

Main actor and director Santiago Segura sings parts of the ending songs but, in the credits, he is listed as "José Luis Torrente" (the fictional character he plays in the movie - and in the song). At the very ending of the credits, Segura says (not sings) "¿Y éste quién es? Ya no queda nadie" ("And who the heck is that one? There's nobody left"), meaning that all the audience has left the cinema but one person. See more »

This is 2º installment in Torrente series . These films are made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a nice entertainment . "Torrente 2" 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 chases and many other things . The picture contains thrills , nosy action , tongue-in-cheek , profanities , grotesque situations and above all , humor . Torrente 2 is written, directed, produced and stars Segura, whose production house Amiguetes Entertainment produced the film , UIP holds Spanish distribution rights . The screenplay is absurd as well as crazy , just what makes laugh a lot , that the character "Torrente" very slutty , clumsy , sexist , 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 it's a pathetic character , though he also has his charms . Torrente 2 grossed more than 22 million in 2001 and the first Torrente, which set box office records in its day, took $707,000 . The film contains many cameos of famous people, familiar faces such as Tony Leblanc , Juanito Navarro , Joe Luis Lopez Vazquez , Paloma Cela , Santi Millan , Jose Mota , Pablo Carbonel ,among others . This film will not disappoint Santiago Segura fans.
