So, I was walking through the video store last night looking for something to rent, when my eyes fell upon a welcome site. 'TORQUE' the cover screamed in bold letters. Just looking at the case made me want to live my life a quartermile at a time. But wait, it got better. To my delight, I discovered it starred ICE CUBE, & JAIME PRESLEY I was still A little skeptical of this movie that was in theaters for about 2 days, but what sealed the deal was the small print on the front: "from the makers of XXX and FAST AND THE FURIOUS". So I rent this gem, and head back home.
Well, I won't drag this out. To be honest, I knew it was going to suck, like maybe a dustbuster. I didn't realize it was going to be a fucking shop vac. Crystal meth in bike tanks, rolls royce heli-jet engine powered carbon fiber bike, harleys which carbon fiber jet bike has trouble keeping up to, people without helmets walking away uninjured/unphased from fiery 250+ kph crashes, mechanic chicks 'bike fighting' (must find pic), peoples bikes explode, then in the next scene they have the same bike again, and the 'best' part; 90% of the sportbike riding is done off road, either through salt flats or dirt roads, all the time wheelieing and stoppying.
Might as well throw in a few spoilers; the guy gets the girl, a black guy dies first, ice cube plays the 'smart' black bike thug
