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.

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.

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

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.

Tick tock, wasted time it's not
Verified purchase
A very good thriller, not knowing was doing the what to whom, and it is first film I remember Neal McDonough from, and Cuba Gooding great always. Interesting plot twists throughout, and the 1:41 running time does not offend my attention span.

good plot ruined by the fact that no one can be as stupid as Cuba Gooding plays. Movie not well directed or a good script.
