Storyline

Beautiful Rachel is the homebound wife of a wealthy, emotionally cold millionaire, Holden. While Holden is away on one of his many business trips, Rachel's close -- very close -- friend, the equally beautiful, plots to kill Holden for the inheritance. With murder on their mind, they seduce simpleton cowboy Travis, whom they meet in a bar, and convince him to do their dirty work. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the cunning women, a private eye hired by Holden to follow Rachel (he suspects her of having an affair) discovers the scheme on the night of the intended murder. Alibis backfire, loyalties are questioned, and more than one murder takes place before the unpredictable ending. Written by Anonymous

Female trouble from two troubled females .........
3 January 2021 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

"Tick Tock". is an excellent example of a film where less would have been best. What are obviously intended be taken as ultra clever plot twists eventually become so unbelievable that their impact is lost. Flipping back and forth in time is another distraction, and eventually the entire movie becomes "so what", due to the plot contrivances. Acting by Megan Ward, Kristin Minter, and Linden Ashby is acceptable, while David Dukes is superior. Don't get me wrong, the film is totally watchable, and if some of the plot twists that were piled on, were toned down or eliminated, this would be a neat little thriller. There is full frontal nudity, several attempts at dark humor that seem way out of place, and an unexpected ending that helps somewhat. MERK
