Torrente 3 - One was enough
26 October 2005 | by tleftwich75See all my reviews

A film that succeeds in reaching new depths previously unheard of. There are similarities between this and Austin Powers: Goldmember in that the both concepts were already exhausted and could only try to entertain by stooping even lower. Torrente 3 surpassed Goldmember by a long shot.

The storyline, that barely exists, is used to exhibit Benny Hill style scenes with topless models, so nothing new, but raping an unconscious drug-addict, from behind, on two separate occasions, really makes you wonder who in their sane minds thought these were acceptable comedy moments. Other 'highlights' such as a parody of 9/11, illegal immigrant extortion, famous footballers (+ one Hollywood director) cinema cameos brawling in a brothel, says it all. The novelty of this charmingly degenerate character was spent after the first film, but to believe it could live on for a third is a cheap joke too far.
