Well made
25 May 2003 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

'Ticker' is yet another short film from The Hire-series and again it is not disappointing. Clive Owen as The Driver has to deliver a man (Don Cheadle) with a briefcase on all costs. A helicopter is flying above them, shooting at them. We see F. Murray Abraham, Ray Liotta and Robert Patrick as nice extras. This short looks more real than most other action movies. With a nice story and some good acting this is worth watching.
