CNET Editors' review

Movie Torrent is a basic peer-to-peer file-sharing client that lets users download a variety of different media types. Although the program works just fine, expect to seek additional instruction if you're not already familiar with torrents.

The program's interface is basic, with buttons and drop-down menus at the top that allow access to the program's features. Things aren't particularly intuitive, and users who are new to torrent downloading will likely be confused. In fact, although the program's Web site states that users can search for torrents, we couldn't locate the search feature, leaving us on our own when it comes to finding torrents to download. Although the program has a Help menu, there's no actual Help file either within the program or online, which we found doubly frustrating given the program's unintuitive nature. Once we went to another Web site in search of torrents and found one we wanted to download, the program worked well enough, quickly opening the files and beginning the download. The program also makes it easy for users to turn existing files into torrents for sharing. The program is just fine for users who have used other torrent clients and are familiar with their features, but brand-new torrent users will likely find that Movie Torrent offers too little guidance.

Movie Torrent is free. It installs politely but leaves a file behind upon removal. We recommend this program to intermediate and advanced users of the torrent format.

    "Very Nice, With A Major Drawback"

    September 7, 2013  |   By Smeaga31

    Version: Movie Torrent 4.1.2

    Pros

    It's pretty fast compared to some.
    Has all the features one would need in this type of software.
    Very easy install and set-up.

    Cons

    It wouldn't keep my view settings from session to session. Every time I would start it up I would have to redo my preferences.

    Summary

    I uninstalled. If you don't care about custom views then this is probably the best one next to uTorrent. It truly is a nice program.

    "I wish I could give no stars"

    September 5, 2013  |   By bartnj

    Version: Movie Torrent 4.1.2

    Pros

    NONE Total spyware.

    Cons

    A quick look at the "reviews" on this page should give it away. They are all 5 star reviews, with no cons, totally positive in the most vague way.
    Oh , the reviews ARE ALL POSTED ON THE SAME DAY YOU MORONS
    EVERY REVIEW IS POSTED ON JUNE12TH. Coincidence?

    Summary

    Well, I tried it anyway, because I have total system control and can kill an hack, virus, spyware etc...

    Didn't need my skills as my friendly neighborhood Norton download scan IMMEDIATELY kicked it out as junk and advised me to "DISCARD" which I promptly did.

    "spyware warning"

    August 14, 2013  |   By daburgerman

    Version: Movie Torrent 4.0.8

    Pros

    asdadadasdadads

    Cons

    As I was downloading this program, my webroot detector alarm came up saying some adware was found. This program will probably infect your PC with that junk. Can't believe it's on CNET. What other junk is on CNET? Can't trust this site anymore...

    Updated on Aug 15, 2013

    "Increases your torrent speed significantly."

    June 13, 2012  |   By tpvppf

    Version: Movie Torrent 4.0.3

    Pros

    Stability, no fuss appearance, Low on resources.

    Cons

    The only drawback I find is that if you are a Linux user you must run this program in Wine

    Summary

    Here is my 2 cents. Movie Torrent is surely the best torrent client out there apart from uTorrent. It hardly takes up any space, it has a good amount of statistics, and I think the download speed is soundly fast.

    "Best choice to download torrents"

    June 13, 2012  |   By shareleonardo

    Version: Movie Torrent 4.0.3

    Pros

    Regular updates. Fast. Light. Clean.

    Cons

    I can't think of one at this time.

    Summary

    It's easy to use and doesn't drain you system resources. Doesn't come with any strings attached or any unwanted spyware or ads. It's safe to use.

    "It got the 'Wow' factor! Lightning fast!!!"

    June 13, 2012  |   By billyana2k

    Version: Movie Torrent 4.0.3

    Pros

    Tiny size. Set labels to torrents. Easily create new torrents. Test connection speed and port forwarding. Skinnable.

    Cons

    Cons? Not in my book, baby.

    Summary

    Honestly, I think Movie Torrent is simply the best torrent client ever to be created. It is the kind of software that once you've used it instantly becomes part of your life. Sometimes I just look for anything to download, even if I don't really need it, just to keep Movie Torrent working.
    Vuze is quite confusing and is a bandwidth hog. Bittorrent is just too simple to get anything out of it. BitComet is fairly ok, but comes with annoying ads. None of those made my torrent client list, but Movie Torrent. To wrap it up, Movie Torrent is simple the best.
