Torque (the movie)

Postby Ian on Mon Jan 19, 2004 11:27 pm

As many of you know, I'm a sucker for movies with fast cars/bikes, chicks in skimpy outfits and cheesie special effects. I also can't pass up any movie with Ice Cube in it. Needless to say, Torque was top on my list of movies to see this past weekend.

In all honesty, it was better than I expected. If you go see it, make sure you look at the spinning sign in the beginning (it has a hidden message) and keep your eyes peeled for a cameo of Jesse James (West Coast Choppers). Some of the bikes in the movie are his.

Anyone have any info on that jet powered bike at the end? I want one. 0-200mph in 10 seconds. :o

The current issue of FHM has an article on it. It's called the Y2K...0 to 60 in 1.5 seconds! Nice, especially if you want to be an organ donor! :)
