Editorial Reviews

When a mad bomber (Dennis Hopper) descends on San Francisco it's up to two men to uncover his plot and find the massive bomb hidden somewhere in the city. Steven Seagal stars as the Zen leades of the bomb squad and Tom Sizemore is a vice cop out for vengeance. Featurning special appearance by pop sensation Chilli.

5.0 out of 5 stars tick...tick...tick...KABOOM! July 24, 2003
Ticker is such a jaw-droppingly awful film that the five star rating is to HIGHLY recommended it for Seagal fans who must see what a shell of his former self the big man has become.
Ticker got a straight-to-DVD release in 2001 for a couple of glaring reasons:
1) it's absolutely one of the worst films I have seen in recent memory, and yes, I do like Seagal movies for what they are
2) after 9/11 this movie must have looked like one of the worst decisions anyone involved with it could have made
To sum up--Sizemore is a cop on the edge, Seagal works in the bomb squad, and Dennis Hopper is an ex-IRA mad bomber terrorist who is blowing up San Francisco because...I don't remember, really. After 9/11 the mad bomber/terrorist story line made Ticker about as bankable as a Howard the Duck sequel. And, of course, the film is appalling.
Where to begin? I wasn't expecting much. Just a bad B-movie with enough action to while away 90 minutes or so. Between Seagal, Tom Sizemore, Dennis Hopper, Peter Greene, and Nas all showing up, how bad could it be?
Bad. The film is literally so incoherent that I had difficulty following what was going on in whole sequences. There are gun battles where everyone looks the same, everyone is shooting, and you can't follow the action. The editing is so bad that the film often resembles a series of scenes just spliced together. A bomb is being disabled in one place, and then there's an explosion in another, and then someone is walking around somewhere, we don't know where. The police station is filmed from the same angle over and over, suggesting that if someone stepped the wrong day the set wall would come crashing down. The acting is laughable, as if everyone was equally embarrassed to be involved.

2.0 out of 5 stars It could have been a great action movie, but... October 3, 2001
Has Director Albert Pyun ever made a really good movie? Certainly "Ticker" ist one of his best, but it's far from a good movie. Okay, it's fun to watch this flick, but with a higher budget and a more talented director you could have made much, much more of it...
Tom Sizemore is a great actor with an ongoing career (Bringing out the Dead, Pearl Harbor ...) - what the hell let him play in this B-movie?! Dennis Hopper has played many flicks of this kind, so I wasn't surprised, but Steven Seagal fallows his comeback ("Exit Wounds") with this disapointment...
The editing is terrible (you can tell that the explosions were edited in from other movies / the gunfighting during the showdown is edited so badly that you can't tell what's really going on). And I must say: I've never seen a bomb being defused so ... as at the end of "Ticker"... a terrible, disapointing showdown!
As I mentioned at the beginning: I had fun watching this brainless picture, but if you think about and look at the quality of it, you have to shake your head...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hurts Sooooo Good!!! May 2, 2002
By Styles
This was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Yet, Seagal still reigns supreme as the quintessential, lover-warrior, singer-songwriter extraordinaire. And further proves my strong belief that he should be cast as a member of the Jedi Council in the upcoming Star Wars film. It would be a travesty for Lucas to overlook this magnificent talent of biblical and mythical proportions. In other words, Seagal is mysterious and powerful and his mystery is only exceeded by his power.
Leaving my bias for Seagal aside, I agree that Ticker is in fact a horrible, terrible film, further proving what I call the "Seagal Title Regression Postulation." According to my hypothesis, this addition to the data (Ticker) proves the postulation which clearly states that with the exception of Under Seige (one of the human race's finest accomplishments), that there is a direct correlation between the quality of Seagal films and the number of words in the a particular movie's title. For example films with three word titles (e.g. Out for Justice, Hard to Kill, etc.) are fantastic on many levels. However, in making the transition later in his career to films with 2 word titles (e.g. The Patriot) the overall Seagal experience is diminished substantially. With Ticker, and the final evolution to the 1 word movie title Seagal has reached the nadir of his film career. Fear not Seagal fans, for this postulation also contains a prophecy. Seagal will make a glorious return to 3 word movie titles and reclaim his position as an everlasting icon as an American bad[bootie], restoring his status as the greatest American martial-arts expert.
***For super Seagal afficionados only***
If you are fortunate enough to own a DVD copy of Ticker, look closely at the cleverly disguised lead singer of the blues band playing at the jazz bar. You will be splendidly surprised.

1.0 out of 5 stars Three good actors. One bad movie. November 20, 2001
By A Customer
As far as I am concerned a move that is successful has to be origional, well directed, entertaining and stimulating. This movie had none of those traits, it was boring, predictable, unorigional and just plain lame. What was Tom Siezmore and Dennis Hopper thinking when they signed on for this flick, and I can only imagine their reactions when they saw it its end result, they had to be embarrassed. It felt like a made for tv movie and a bad one at that. As far as Steven Seagal I like him a lot and own all his movies, but I will never buy this one, I wouldn't take it if it were free. I looked forward to seeing some of his moves in the movie but the only time he did anything was at the very end and it was so dark and badly filmed that you couldn't even see what he was doing. It also felt like they had to stick in a little of his Aikido moves just because he was Steven Seagle, I hate to say it but I think the movie would have been better if he had just remained a bomb squad captain instead of his character role as the invincible martial artist. Don't ever watch this movie it will only hurt the reputations of three fine actors. If I could give this movie a below 1 star rating I would, it truely deserves it.

Enjoyed this movie very much. Lots of action. It's an older movie but worth the price to buy it. One of Dennis Hopper's last movie before his death.

Maybe I'm being just the tiniest bit hard on "Ticker". Yes, I know that it was made on a meager $600,000 budget, but that doesn't excuse it for me. Read more
