CUBA GOODING JR AT HIS FINEST
Verified purchase
CUBA GOODING JR. IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE ACTORS. HE IS NOW A BUSINESSMAN AND ENTREPRENEUR AND HAS STOPPED PERFORMING. BUT, THIS IS ONE OF HIS BEST MOVIES, INCLUDING AS THE ANTAGONIST, THE GREAT NEAL MCDONAUGH. A SERIAL KILLER IS RUNNING LOOSE, AND GOODING IS A WASHED UP FAMOUS AUTHOR. HOWEVER, WHEN HIS GIRLFRIEND IS MURDERED BY THE KILLER, HE TAKES ON
THE CASE. THE PLOT IS JUST SO UNIQUE AND ALL THE ACTORS ARE REAL PROFESSIONALS, THIS MOVIE RANKS AT THE TOP OF ALL HIS
THRILLERS. THE 🎵 MUSIC IS TERRIFIC AND THERE ARE MANY TWISTS AND TURNS, ENDLESSLY. I WOULD RANK THIS AS PERHAPS CUBA’S
NEAR TOP FILM OF ALL HIS PICTURES. WHEN THE DENOUEMENT, I.E. UNRAVELING ARRIVES, THE FINALE IS BREATHTAKING.

really? Not worth the time
Verified purchase
I read some of the reviews that indicated that this was a really good movie and since it has 2 of my favorite actors I decided to give it a try. BIG MISTAKE! It's trite. It's predictable. If I didn't know better I think someone used the notes for how NOT to write a script and then faithfully followed it. Maybe if the characters hadn't been caricature it might have been more entertaining. I didn't even finish watching it -- I had a tea kettle that needed to be descaled and cleaned that was more entertaining.

Thought it would be good, but didn't realize it had a weird plot.
Verified purchase
Generally, I like the actors in this film, which is why I bought it. But I sure as heck didn't care for the very weird, "science-fiction" plot..!! That was totally strange. Didn't care for it - this is one of those movies in which had I ever seen it before, I would've never given a second thought to buying this film in the first place..!! To be honest, to me, it really sucked..!! Others may like it, but I sure didn't..!

Stupid
Verified purchase
I thought this movie was ok... until time traveling came up. But, then it was utterly stupid. There's almost 2 hours I'll never get back.. oh wait if i was able to time travel i could get those precious 2 hours back. Don't waste ur money or time watching.

TICKING CLOCK is a great movie that I believe almost anyone would enjoy.

This was a great, little movie that I'd never heard of! What a clever and creative story this is for viewers.Not only was it suspenseful, is also turned out to be a science fiction story.
Cuba Gooding was excellent, as always as was Neal McDonaugh as the killer. I don't want to give any of it away, as I think it's only up to the ones
who choose to do these reviews, to give our opinion's or impressions, etc. and to let the people out there decide if they want to watch this or not. I get tired of seeing entire plots of movies given away and I don't quite understand why someone feels the need to do that! With that said, I loved this film and thought it had a great plot. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.

Recently watched another good mystery thriller, TICKING CLOCK (2012 film) with Cuba Gooding, Jr. starring as an investigative reporter trying to solve a series of gruesome murders. A few sub-plots added to the storyline as well as twists make for an intriguing film. As always, very fine acting by Gooding, Jr.

You gotta love Neal McDonough
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this move despite the subject of time travel. Let's face it, time travel and logic just don't mix when making a movie. That being sadi, this was a pretty good film that entertains and keeps moving. There might be a couple slow spots, but they are actually important to the plot. Cuba Gooding Jr. gives a solid performance as the hero trying to make sense of it all but the realspotlight should be on Neal McDonough. He is simply awesome as the badguy. I mean he can just radiate evil when he wants to. My advice is to watch this with an open mind and try not to thing about the logic of time travel. Enjoy it for what it is: A couple hours of entertainment. It delivered more than I expected. That's why I gave it 5 stars.

I thought this movie was quite good
Verified purchase
Different strokes for different folks. Of the three reviews I have read all the reviewers were bad mouthing the movie in one way or another. I found the movie quite good and the acting excellent. The story of an investigative reporter being one step behind a cold blooded murderer keeps you going until the very end(and the way the killer manages to stay ahead of the authorities is really good). Unlike some movies I have seen in the past it also has an excellent ending. If you want to see a good movie, rent it before you purchase it, so you'll only be spending a small amount for the rental, and if you're disappointed you won't be out that much money. I for one plan to purchase this movie in the near future as I thought it was well worth the time that I spent watching it.
