'Torque'
(Martin Henderson, Ice Cube, Monet Mazur / PG-13 / 81 mins / Warner Bros.)

Overview: Biker Cary Ford (Martin Henderson) returns to town to reunite with his girlfriend, Shane (Monet Mazur). Henry (Matt Schulze), leader of the Hellions gang, is after Cary because he stole some bikes that had drugs stored in the gas tanks. Henry frames Cary for the murder of Junior, the younger brother of Trey (Ice Cube), who heads up another gang, the Reapers.

Verdict: To say that 'Torque' is amusingly simple-minded and playfully over-the-top is a huge understatement! Indeed, it's a simple-minded celebration of speed that pretends to be nothing else, even throwing in the occasional wink to acknowledge its own silliness. Watching it is the closest thing yet to seeing a first-person driving game play itself! And as much as it is quite entertaining at the beginning, it quickly disintegrates into a spine-rattling mess of crashes, gun blasts, detonations, and "How the hell did they survive that?"
