Torrente 2 : Mision in Marbella

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Action/Adventure, Comedy
Release Date:January 1, 2001
Running time:99 minutes
Director:Santiago Segura
Writer:Santiago Segura

Description: Torrente, the thick-headed cop from the successful Spanish comedy Torrente: El Brazo Tonto De La Ley, is back on the beat in this sequel, which actually outdoes the low comedy of the first film. In his second go-round, Torrente (once again played by Santiago Segura, who also wrote and directed the film) has managed to squander his savings while enjoying life (and chasing women) in the resort town of Marbella, so he goes back to work, finding employment as a private detective, with dope-addled ne'er-do-well Cuco (Gabino Diego) signing on as his assistant. Through a series of misunderstandings, Torrente ends up crossing paths with Spinelli (Jose Luis Moreno), a corrupt international arms dealer, and when Spinelli threatens to blow up Torrente unless he receives a ransom of two billion pesetas, the bumbling skirt-chaser becomes the only man who can prevent the destruction. Torrente 2: Mision En Marbella features cameo appearances from a number of popular Spanish comics and television personalities; the first film was one of the biggest grossing homegrown features ever in Spain, and the sequel's box-office success led many to predict Torrente could become the subject of a long-running series.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
