''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious''... [[RecycledInSpace WITH MOTORCYCLES!]]

''Torque'' is a 2004 action film directed by Joseph Kahn.

Martin Henderson plays BadassBiker Cary Ford. 6 months prior to the events of the film, Henry James (Matt Schulze), the leader of a biker gang called the Hellions requested he look after some bikes. When trying to move them, however, Ford found crystal meth in the fuel tanks. Ford hid the bikes and fled to Thailand, where has has been for six months, leading the police to believe he is a drug dealer and Henry to believe he stole his bikes. Now Ford's returned to the states to reconcile with his girlfriend Shane (Monet Mazur). Henry's still pissed, so he frames Ford for the murder of the younger brother of Trey (Music/IceCube), the leader of a rival biker gang called the Reapers. Motorcycle chases ensue...

!!This film provides examples of:

* AllBikersAreHellsAngels: And how!
* YouFailPhysicsForever: Here's a tip: whenever the camera goes into VertigoEffect or otherwise replaces the background with CGI, assume that all laws of physics (other than some residual gravity effects) have taken a cigarette break.
* AssholeVictim: Junior. You have to admit. He was a complete {{Jerkass}} throughout the beginning of the film who kind of have it coming after trying to get his gang to sell drugs.
* BadassBiker: [[SarcasmMode Who would have thought that this movie would bear this trope?]]
* BallroomBlitz
* BikerBabe: [[SarcasmMode Or this?]]
* TheCameo: When Shane and Ford argue in her shop, she angrily tells another customer they're closed. The other customer is Jesse James from ''Series/MonsterGarage''.
* CaptainErsatz: "Man, Tom Cruise sure did look badass doing those motorcycle stunts in that ''Film/MissionImpossibleII'' movie. Martin Henderson looks sort of like a scruffy Tom Cruise, let's cast him and do a lot of the same sort of {{Badass}} Shots that Cruise did in MI."
%%* CarCushion
%%* ChaseScene
* CoolBike: Almost every bike in the film, most notably the Y2K.
* DesignatedGirlFight: Three guesses as to whether Shane and Henry's black leather-clad girlfriend engage in a [[{{Narm}} uproariously]] unrealistic [[CarFu duel]] '''[[CarFu with]]''' [[CarFu their bikes]].
* EveryCarIsAPinto: Every Motorbike Is ''[[UpToEleven Filled With Dynamite!]]''
%%* GroinAttack
* JiveTurkey: Ice Cube is in this movie, and he's the leader of an African American biker gang.
* JustTrainWrong: The entire train scene. See the trope page for details.
* KarmicDeath: Luther is hung with a chain- the same method he used to kill Junior, Trey even Lampshades this by saying "Ain't that ironic"?
* MadeOfIron: [[SarcasmMode Coming off a Y2K at 400+ km/h with no helmet and surviving with NO injuries? What's unrealistic about that?]]
* NitroBoost: The Y2K has this in full effect.
* ProductPlacement: Check out the Pepsi and Mountain Dew signs during the DesignatedGirlFight.
* RacingTheTrain: Happens when the {{chase scene}} between Trey and Ford is taken from top of a train to the front of it.
* RailroadTracksOfDoom: Trey gets caught in his own bike in the middle of the tracks and Ford rescues him right before the two jump out of the way just in time for the train to close in and run over the bike, causing it to explode.
%%* {{Ramprovisation}}
* RecycledINSPACE: ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious''... WITH MOTORCYCLES!
* RuleOfCool: There are scenes that use CGI to achieve what stuntmen couldn't do because ''[[ArtisticLicensePhysics physics doesn't work that way in real life]]''.
* RuleOfFun: The most likely justification for the overwhelming unrealisticity.
* ShoutOut: At one point you can see [[Film/{{Duel}} a red Valiant drive by and then a large filthy tanker truck drives a biker off the road]].
* StealthParody: According to [[http://www.slashfilm.com/2010/05/08/the-filmcast-after-dark-ep-98-the-making-of-torque-and-the-imagery-of-kick-ass-guest-joseph-kahn-director-of-torque/ Joseph Kahn himself]] and to recent interviews with Adam Scott (who plays an FBI agent), the movie was mostly intentional in its ridiculousness. Kahn assumes 75% of the movie he wanted to make was in the final effort and that the lack of physics and the general over-the-top nature was entirely intended.
* TakeThat:
** At one point ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'' is directly referenced/insulted. Ford borrows Creator/VinDiesel's line, "I live my life a quarter-mile at a time," to which Shane replies, "That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard."
** The film seems to just have it at cars. At the beginning of the film, just after Ford outruns two cars (which look like having come out of a ''Fast and Furious'' film), the gush of wind made by his bike's high speed makes a sign street address spin in a way that it's made to look as if it reads "Cars Suck."
* VaporTrail: Probably one of the most ridiculous examples ever shown in film. The fire can chase down a bike said to have a top-speed of 200 mph.
* WomanInBlack: China. Played straight... or parodied?
* WrenchWench: Shane.
