Format: DVD
'Tortured' is a suspense crime thriller that was released Direct-to-DVD and has went unnoticed.

The movie is about an undercover FBI agent, Kevin Cole (Cole Hauser) who attempts to infiltrate a serious crime syndicate by joining them and gaining their trust. In order to gain the the trust, he must torture a hostage, Archie Green (Laurence Fishburne) and obtain information from him.

The movie has an interesting and appetising start, slowly progresses with the suspense and climaxes with a final twist.

The start was appealing as it sets up the ending and makes you look forward to it. The downside is the middle part, which is slow and uneven as it jumps back to the past every now and then showing how and when Hauser's character started the mission. This makes the suspense, which was a most of the time effective, weak.

I am a big fan of suspense thrillers and always relish the prospect of a shock twist. On watching the movie, I knew straight away that there was going to be a twist as the movie clearly indicates that as its primary priority. I must say this is what kept me interested. The twist was good but unbelievable and I sort of figured it out. Saying that, if you don't pick up on a few things, the twist will be shocking.

Also of mention are the torture scenes, that are graphic and gruesome. These scenes do grab your attention and at the same time may put off some viewers.

The other flaws are the cheap production values and the unconvincing performance by Fishburne.

Hauser and James Cromwell who plays his father in the movie, both produce fair performances. The direction provided by Nolan Lebovitz is strictly average as it's not composed at times.

Taking it's a Direct-to-DVD release with cheap production values, I had no expectations, however, it surprisingly turned out to be a watchable thriller.

It's worth a view.

I realy enjoyed this film, it had a great slant on the genre and keeps your attention all the way through and had a great twist at the end, I won't say any more to avoid spoiling the plot for others. Well worth a watch.

A decent thriller that flew under the radar... 16 Sept. 2008
By Steve Kuehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This title had received no advertising and very little coverage in the ordering publications so I carried few since the cast seemed solid. I was pleasantly surprised.

Cole Hauser leads the film as our undercover FBI agent infiltrating one of the oldest and largest crime syndicates still in operation. James Cromwell plays the FBI Director/dad of our main character, and Lawrence Fishburne plays the tortured victim/hostage of the bad guys. Emmanuelle Chriqui, Robert LaSardo and Jon Cryer round out a recognizable supporting cast who all perform with adequate prose for their shorter roles. The story follows the agent as he has to torture this prisoner to gain the trust of the syndicate. The film leap frogs between time periods of the agent's mission, with graphic depictions of disgusting torture in between.

This movie earns the R rating many times over for violence, and the inevitable B movie feel filters through once in awhile. But Cole (who I liked in Dirty) carries the film nicely as Fishburne and Cromwell play their usual characters from many other films without a problem. I swear LaSardo gets 20 more tattoos between each film - cannot see his skin anymore, good art though. Customers keep asking for a good thriller with any surprising twists (instead of predictable and dumb), and I think this title can keep the masses happy this week.

Great twist, but some parts are tough to watch 24 Dec. 2008
By JB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I watched this movie with no expectations, mainly because I had never heard about it. However, as soon as the movie starts, it gets very intriguing. The movie is not hard to watch because it is boring, but because of some torture methods that appear to hurt very much. The movie does jump around between time periods a bit, but they piece the movie together very well if you pay attention. The ending is built up very well and I enjoyed the twist. I would highly reccomend watching or buying this.

Mediocre 2 Dec. 2012
By KevinB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Deep undercover in a brutal criminal organization, FBI agent Kevin Cole must use extreme methods to prove himself. Ordered by the mysterious crime boss, Ziggy, to track down stolen millions, Cole has to torture the mob's accountant. But as he starts turning the screws, the mind games begin. Now who's controlling who? Enter the ruthless world of organized crime, where you're only as good as your last lie.

This movie is not bad, but not that good either. It's got a pretty thin story. The main focus on the film, other than brutal torture, is the fragile mental state of the FBI agent who is supposed to be protecting the innocent rather than torturing them. It's a sado masachistic film and it does leave an impression, not a very good one though. The only redeeming thing in this film is the twist at the end. It's not a movie that is worth owning, but I think it may be worth seeing once. That's a toss up though. You're not really missing anything here.

Tortured 11 Mar. 2010
By TREND700 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Jimmy, a business-like young man, enters a room where a man, the accountant for a shadowy drug lord, is shackled. Over the next week, Jimmy systematically tortures the accountant, demanding information about missing funds. The accountant denies any knowledge. In flashbacks to six months before, we see Jimmy's joining a group of the drug lord's enforcers, surviving brutal hazing, getting his first assignment, and keeping his cool. We also learn that Jimmy has another identity, friends in high places, and a girlfriend unhappy about both his work and his changing personality. Good casting, good acting, intriguing characters, very good pacing all make this an entertaining movie to watch. Although the twists and turns keep things interesting, the major direction becomes increasingly predictable and unfortunately increasingly implausible. It wasn't enough to ruin the movie.
