Torque [WS] [DVD] [2004]

The film that will no doubt take the cake for most outrageous film of 2004, Torque zooms to DVD with hot extras and a transfer that preserves every fuel-injected second of this over-the-top biker flick. Presented with a widescreen 2.35:1 picture and roaring 5.1 sound, the film will have you crying after your entertainment center gets through assaulting you with this sucker (Note: to truly appreciate Torque, the volume should be as incredibly loud as possible!) Just the like movie, the DVD turns it up to 11 with its extras, starting with the audio commentaries. Both take the cake for assembling almost the entire cast and creative crew behind the film, each track a fun and informative look at the process of making a film of this special quality. The first one has the director, Joseph Kahn, and nine, count them, nine cast members! Everyone but Ice Cube makes it, and because of that, the track never gets stale and has the same vibrancy as the movie (the film's main bad guy Matt Schulze's creepiness included!). The second track is pretty incredible, as its features Kahn along with the writer, cinematographer, visual effects supervisor, supervising sound editor, second unit director, editor, and last but not least, the production designer -- with no producer to be found! If this isn't a first, then what is? Extras continue with two animatics that should only prove that the filmmakers knew exactly what they were making, dating back to pre-production. The Racing Animatic features a storyboard-to-live-action comparison of the unbelievable racing scene that opens the film, with Kahn making an appearance on the mike again as he discusses his nicely drafted storyboards, which are almost exactly what ended up on the finished film. The director makes just one more encore on a track with visual effects supervisor Eric Durst on the Train Animatic featurette, which shows visual comparisons of the storyboards, the computer-animated animatics, and the final film footage. The bonuses don't have multiple-angle features or anything complicated and that's what kind of makes them work. Extras are rounded out by a fun "Lean Low" music video by YoungbloodZ and the original theatrical trailer. All in all, this is a terrific disc from Warner Bros. and a benchmark for solid DVD releases.

    Synopsis


    Torque
    Shelved for almost a full year, the feature-film debut of acclaimed music video director Joseph Kahn, Torque is an action thriller set in the fast-paced, high-adrenaline world of biker gangs. Martin Henderson (The Ring) stars as Cary, a biker who is framed for the murder of a gang leader Trey's (Ice Cube) brother by Henry (Matt Schulze). Now, Cary finds himself on the run from both Trey's gang and the FBI, headed by the wise-cracking Agent McPherson Adam Scott. From Neal H. Moritz, producer of The Fast and the Furious and XXX, Torque co-stars Jaime Pressly and Monet Mazur. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

      torque is a popcorn action movie with some one funny one liners so if you want a goofy popcorn movie than watch torque and the blu-ray looks amazing and the 5.1 surround sound is one you show off bc the base alone will rock your house so if you want a fun but goofy movie than watch torque and if you can find this blu-ray for 10 buck or under than pick it up

      Some people may think its a cheesy movie, but I totally got into it. Sure there are better action flicks, but this held mine & my guys attentions even with the pretty people to look at in this movie. FYI though, my boy luvs motorcycles, so keep that in mind if purchasing.
