About the Film

The Protector

Santiago Segura is more shocking than ever in his uproarious third escapade as bawdy private detective Torrente. A popular and beautiful politician plans to expose the evil-doings of a multinational corporation. Hoping to silence her, the corporation’s top executives decide to hire the most incompetent detective they can find to act as her bodyguard. Naturally, Torrente is perfect for the job.

About the TORRENTE PACKAGE

Meet Torrente. He’s rude, crude, lewd…and a real private dick!  The four action-comedy films that make up the wildly popular TORRENTE series  (THE DUMB ARM OF THE LAW, MISSION IN MARBELLA, THE PROTECTOR and LETHAL CRISIS) feature the comic capers of José Luis Torrente (Santiago Segura)—a lazy, offensive and shamelessly politically-incorrect former cop who continues to “fight” crime as a private detective. Writer, director and star Segura takes no prisoners as his exasperating alter ego engages in all manner of shady outrageousness in pursuit of his own brand of justice. The TORRENTE series is the most successful movie franchise in Spanish film history and a box office sensation around the world. Now, for the first time, TORRENTE’s antics are available in the US on digital streaming platforms.
