This movie makes fun of The Fast and the Furious franchise. In the opening a street sign spins , and says "Cars suck". Later on in the movie Ford says the line "I live my life a quarter mile at a time".That is the same line Dominic terretto says in the first The Fast and the Furious (2001) movie. To which Shane replies " That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard". See more »
When Shane and Ford are racing through the rally back to her place, she is wearing only a hooded sweatshirt with her hair hanging down. No matter how fast she goes, her hair and hood never move. See more »

Various changes were made to secure a PG-13 rating (for example, the head through the car window; the re-dubbed line, "You were always a punk"). These changes exist in every released version of the film. See more »
What's with the hate for this movie? Why can't people just take this movie for what it is? This movie is just simply good B-movie action entertainment. Its obviously no Oscar material, no but did you seriously expected it to be? At least it doesn't take itself as serious as both the Fast and the Furious movies did. You know that when you are going to watch a movie like "Torque" you are going to see a bad story with some second rate actors but with some nice action.
And this movie surely has some nice action. The motorcycle sequences are surprising good and tense. Most of the stunts were nicely choreographed and the movie has some nice camera tricks and nice editing. It's obvious when watching this movie that Joseph Kahn is a music video director but that certain style works perfect for a fast paced movie like this. Joseph Kahn seems like a talented and well motivated director, of which I'm sure we will hear more of in the future.
Yeah sure, the ending is pretty bad and fake looking but it didn't ruined the movie for me in any way. I was entertained throughout the entire movie by some nice action.
The movie has a bit of an awkward kind of humor, which they should had left out in my opinion. The script is not very well written but still the actors pull it of to make their characters likable and give them a personality. Would I mind seeing "Torque 2"? Most certainly not! I would rather see a "Torque 2" than a "The Fast and the Furious 3".
Really, just give this movie a chance, you might very well end up liking it.
