Meet Torrente. He's rude, crude, lewd...and a real private dick! The four action-comedies that make up the wildly popular Torrente series (The Dumb Arm of the Law, In Marabella, The Protector and Lethal Crisis) feature the comic exploits 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 Torrente's antics are available in the US on digital streaming platforms for the first time.

In The Dumb Arm of the Law, his first hilarious misadventure, former cop Torrente (Santiago Segura) hopes to win the attention of his sexy and beautiful neighbor by taking her nerdy cousin, Rafi, on his nightly crime-fighting patrols. Soon Torrente begins to suspect that a band of drug dealers is operating out of a local Chinese restaurant. With the help of Rafi and his equally inept friends, Torrente sets out to crack the case.
