This review is from: Torque [DVD]  (DVD)
Nothing like a film to make one feel old and cynical. Cary Ford (Martin Henderson) is a cliche Hollywood biker without a mark on his face and all his teeth, even though he fights 2 guys in every scene. All the biker chicks have hard bodies, a thin waist, and temporary tattoos. Cary was on the lam for six months in Asia, hiding out from the law and other bikers who want to kill him. He returns to the states and decides to visit his old haunts and hang out where they can easily find him, as if there is only one biker bar in the world.
With Ice Cube in the film, the acting is taken down a notch as he pretends he is a Mr. T tough guy. Monet Mazur plays the eye candy girlfriend. Cary tries to prove his innocence. Plenty of bike scenes with afterburners, cars with 5-6 overdrive gears, vehicles that bump on the highway that don't get damaged, bikes that get laid down and never get scratched...all to a soundtrack that makes you long for Miami Vice.
I have outgrown these types of films, especially when there is nothing about the film to grab me and hold my interest. This has all the glitz of a kids movie.
