Scenes from Sweepers (1998) were spliced into this film in the opening sequence. Most notably are a S.W.A.T. officer's climb over a fence. And two men being shot and falling off the house. See more »
In the opening section where Seagal's team abseil from the helicopter into the house, the helicopter changes. When we first see the team they are in a Bell206 (Long Ranger); this has skids and no stubbed wings. Yet when they abseil down the helicopter is now a Bell222 which has a retractable wheeled undercarriage (no skids) and stubbed wings. See more »

Ticker is a perfect example of sloppy film making at its best. Continuity errors, scenes from other movies edited into this movie, poor acting, sloppy editing, and an even worse story. Tom Sizemore, Dennis Hopper and Steven Seagal should be ashamed of themselves for participating in such a terrible movie.
Basically Ticker centers around a police officer Ray Nettles (Tom Sizemore) who must team up with bomb squad leader Glass (Steven Seagal) to pursue an Irish terrorist Swann (Dennis Hopper in a very poor man's version of his famous role in Speed) who is detonating bombs around San Francisco (you could tell very little of it was filmed in San Francisco and was filmed elsewhere on the cheap). Very derivative, lazy and uninteresting story. The only reason I thought I would check this out was for Tom Sizemore (who was an excellent actor that appeared in Heat, Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down) and plus Steven Seagal when he had box office appeal. I thought Steven Seagal's role would be identical to his role in Executive Decision but its not. Here in Ticker, he was just going through the motions with very minimal effort so he could get his paycheck. Dennis Hopper was very uninspiring as the villain. He was great as the villain in Blue Velvet and Speed, but here is is just sleepwalking though his role.
Apparently director Albert Pyun hated the completed version of this movie and I don't blame him in the slightest. I would disown this movie too.
If you are a fan of Tom Sizemore, Dennis Hopper or Steven Seagal by all means check it out, but you will be very, very disappointed at how bad this movie is. Everybody else I highly recommend you avoid this bomb at all costs.
