solid indeed
27 November 2002 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

It's hard to evaluate these things, because they are essentially 8 minute commercials. Joe Carnahan's "Ticker" is one of the best, that much is certain. The acting talent is again surprising high, with Don Cheadle, Ray Liotta, Robert Patrick, etc., though it's hard to understand why guys like Patrick and Liotta would appear as basically nothing more than extras. The "plot" is the least stupid of the BMW films and actually is a fairly suspenseful complement to the action. Overall, worth a download as it is entertaining and well made.
